Film synopsis The world after the fall from Paradise is corrupt, wicked and in decline, held in thrall by Tubal-cain (Winstone), descendant of the first murderer. But Noah (Crowe), of the righteous line of Seth, receives a vision from the Creator: the world will be cleansed and all its creatures - mankind aside - must be saved.
Having read the 8-page review of this film in April's 'Empire' I have the following comments:
1. Noah is NOT the original superhero. To really understand the story some essential reading is chapter 7 of the book 'Christ of the Covenants' by O. Palmer Robertson.

Anyway, this is one Bible story where God comes over as a complete bastard. Floods the entire planet? Apart from one family? What a dick!
I mean, he spent six days building the world! And all of Adam and Eve's family had spent years(?! - weren't they all 900 years old+) been 'begating' and begetting' and what not - but because he's not More
Will it be the Biblical account MILLIONS will hope it will be???
If NOAH will be Biblically-based about God's judgement of giant half-angels in a flood, then GREAT, LOADS of people of faith will make it a huge success.
However, if it will be another scripure distortion concerning a 'politically motivated pagan earth-religion' (as reported online at christianpost.com), then BORING (and it will be shunned by MANY!)
I really hope this is the Biblically based account millions of people will hope it is! We will have to suspend judgement before 'floods More
