Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In a single sequence, Aronofsky combines creationism, Darwinian evolution, original sin, the end of days, and radical environmentalism."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"Rock Transformers."
‑ Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York
"Aronofsky makes an intermittently arresting Bible movie"
‑ Robert Denerstein, Movie Habit
"Pro-vegan and anti-industrial messages aside... as (a) non-Biblical, alternative history version of the Great Flood, there's some interesting stuff going on here."
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
"Add Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" to the list of Bible-themed film epics ranging from magnificent to stuffy to silly."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
"For all the high-tech showmanship on display, this retelling of Noah and the Ark marks a serious effort to engage with the Old Testament as a literary text."
‑ Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
"It's overlong and a times sluggish. The fights and battles, designed to give an epic fantasy feel to the movie, are grave miscalculations. And the overabundance of CGI often makes Noah look like a video game."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Aronofsky's grand, crazy vision is filled with more awe and reverence than a traditional snoozefest like Son of God, and, in its fun, flawed and chaotic way, Noah is a popcorn flick about the endless wonders of the universe and of the human soul."
‑ Corey Hall, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"A water-logged epic disaster of truly biblical proportions...Bloated, gloomy, super self-serious and - worst of all - boring, the film is so dull and portentous it's likely to make atheists convert, just so they can pray to God to save them."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"An auteurist monument to monomania inspired by Judeo-Christian culture's most famous report of a divine reboot.."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"In some ways, Noah resembles one of those Kirk Cameron movies about the apocalypse, only with a better cast and more dazzling special effects."
‑ Christy Lemire,
"Darren Aronofsky's film about the Old Testament shipbuilder has been sparking controversy - but there's no denying that the Great Flood, digitized, is a pretty great flood."
‑ Bob Mondello, NPR
"Darren Aronofsky upends convention-but stays true to the bible-with this controversial epic."
‑ Alynda Wheat, People Magazine
"There is so much here that is wonderful and strange, my problems with the film are not much more than quibbles. ... I think Noah is Darren Aronofsky's Take Shelter."
‑ Jeffrey Overstreet, Looking Closer
"A bold, trippy new interpretation of an old, old story, about miracles of varying size and shape, in which we still today might find some new angles of inspiration."
‑ Neil Pond, American Profile
