Noah The Movie Review
"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.--Revelation 22: 18-19 KJV
One can certainly argue that Noah's director, Darren Aronofsky, fits this bill. Indeed, in an interview with Sarah Pulliam Bailey that was published in The Washington Post, Aronofsky refers to Noah as "the least biblical biblical movie ever made."

While Aronofsky claims he has stayed true to biblical accounts, his man-made story of what occurred during the four biblical chapters of Noah's silence is erroneous. Still, had this been the only artistic license, things would have been fine. It's his depiction of Noah as a harsh, evil man...portraying the fallen angels as heros who helped build and defend the arc among other things that make this movie a vapid Hollywood show piece. What could have been a great production is an epic fail.
The difficulty I had was in lapsing into moments of truly enjoying parts of the movie. If you venture out, pray for the God's guidance in discernment.
