I am totally biased towards this movie because it makes you think about if what we believe is true or not. I enjoy movies that tease the brain, and not the flesh. The Matrix is definitely that. You have to look at the movie from a technological view in order to enjoy it. The special effects were awesome, and I appreciated the fact that the language was not that bad. No, the plot was not one that I expected, but the action made up for that. I do not recommend this movie for children under 18 - their minds probably won't grasp it - but I do recommend it to adults who like to see movies that are out of the ordinary. I am waiting for it to come out on videotape/DVD so I can hear it through my surround sound system. I enjoyed this movie.
With all of the advertising, I thought this movie would be something that my child and I could watch and experience the glory of God on film, such as with "The Ten Commandments" and "Prince of Egypt". Yet, as I sat down and began to view this...... motion picture, I had to put my four-year old daughter in another room so I could prevent Peter Barnes and NBC from tearing down what God is building up.
I could not believe the way this film portrayed the historical first act of God's anger against mankind. The ONLY correct things in this..... motion picture was the name of the main character, and the kind of water vessel that was built. In the Word (the BIBLE), Noah's wife has no name, his sons are MARRIED to those women, it rained FORTY days (not one, and they lounged on a 'deck' for 39), there was no deck and no flag on the Ark, the water took FIVE MONTHS to recede, and there were NO other survivors but the eight people on the Ark. Oh, and by the way, Noah did not closed the door on the Ark - God did.
At the beginning of the movie, I believe there was a caption that said that the story was conformed to fit into todays' society. My God, this last day we live in needs the true and unadulterated Word of God more than ever before!! The devil himself was behind this project, and he used Peter Barnes to down-size a very pertinent part of end-time prophecy. In this film, it leads people to believe that God tolerates outright sin, and that is a lie. Shackers, alcoholics, murderers, and fornicators did not dwell on the ark, neither did INSANITY. It was also made to appear as if Noah's conscience was speaking in this film instead of the voice of God. The Creator of the Heavens and the Earth is NOT a punk, unlike His adversary.
So, the next time the decision is made to bring the Bible to the box office, please READ it first.
