My Review of the Controversial Movie-Noah

Recommended Posts

Hello! My name is Chal for those of you who are not familiar with me and this is my review of the movie Noah.

 

     I felt that the movie was very good for visuals. The acting and graphics as well as on screen action was magnificent. This is useful for mental imagery when reading the scripture. I did not feel that the movie was a complete and udder abomination as many have tried to implicate. God was was the center piece of the entire movie, however his name was not mentioned directly referring to him as the "creator". The movie DID take creative liberties with grey areas of time that were not elaborated on in scripture such as details within the hundreds of years not accounted for. For example, Noah's Grandfather Methuselah who was portrayed as a great warrior with a flaming sword (pretty neat by the way). There were minor details that were not accurate such as Noah's son Ham, where scripture would lead us to believe he had a wife when he boarded the Ark--in the film he struggled to find a wife before the flood and ultimately did not find a wife causing strife between his Father, Noah and himself. For the most part I believe the movie was very imaginative in the areas of what could have happened in those blocks of time the Bible does not tell us about and although the movie may not be appropriate for the young in faith, I believe you all should go and enjoy the movie. I give this film two thumbs up as well as two toes!

Thanks for honest feedback....was it anti hunting and anti picking flowers? When I heard that...it give me a good laugh...so I would view it as a comedy.

Chalpal,thank you for your great critique.I do not go to movies so this is nice for me to see.I wonder if unbelivers are going to be so curious after they see the movie that they will get a Bible and read Genesis?    :grin:

i heard the movie was not very biblical but God did appear to be the main focus of it. so odds are it will be an inspiration to read the bible for some and an abomanation to others

Read two reviews of the movie yesterday, both from Christian viewpoints, and both strongly recommended that Christians avoid this movie at all costs.  I will include a link to the reviews so you can read them for yourself.  What Hollywood did to the story of Noah is sickening.  There is no way I will be taking my family to see this movie. 

 

Here is a brief review from Ken Ham at AIG.

Here is a better and more detailed review from Plugged In.

Hope these help anyone thinking of going to see this twisted perversion of the story of Noah.

((( Chalpal )))  Blessings!  Little Sister, what a great photograph, by the way.  You are such a lovely young woman, beautiful inside and out!  I'm so pleased to have met you.  You are such a blessing to all of us here at Worthy.

 

Thank you for taking time to post this well written review of the movie Noah.  It sure has created a lot of controversy, which will no doubt help it to attract more viewers and of coarse, make more money.  Cha-ching!

 

I probably will not see it, as it is too intense for me.  I have read different opinions and reviews, which did arouse my curiosity.  Never-the-less, I am not too concerned that this movie will cause Christians to fall, or keep the unsaved from knowing, or learning about God.

 

 Just my take on this ....

 

When I first watched The Bible movie, I was really upset and disappointed that so much liberty was taken in making that film, but after prayer, I understood that most do not know what the Bible has to say, and this film just might prompt curiosity in both the saved and unsaved to start reading their Bibles quite seriously.  I think that is always a good thing.

 

Again, thanks for posting!  I will eagerly await Kwik's review, or response, after she has the chance to go.

 

Be blessed, friends!

Shalom, Prair

Michael Medved said that some liberties were taken in the making of the movie, but it was not the usual junk we get from Hollywood where they are trying to attack the Bible.  He indicated that overall, it was a good and thought provoking movie.  I thank you for your review.  I usually don't go to the theater, but wait till movies come out on DVD, but it will help me make a decision on whether or not to purchase it.

I've been hearing opposing reviews back and forth. I like crowes acting and am happy that they are making a movie from the bible, but Hollywood does have a habit of twisting things. I'll probably wait till it comes out on video and watch it then.

      I was asked by a friend about the Book of Enoch that I was recently reading. I acquired it several months ago but have never taken the time to read the book. Having recently decided to pursue its contents, I find it requires my full concentration. Waiting for this friend to get out of his medical appointment, I had a few minutes to spare, and so I began rereading pages of the book I had already read. This time I had determined to make notes as I went because I wanted to build some word pictures in my head (it's how I learn best.) Waiting for some paperwork from the front desk, we still had a couple of minutes and so I started talking to him about what I had learned so far.
      I mentioned that the Book of Enoch had been an integral part of the early Church, and had been read aloud among the body for 700 years. (Consider that the early church would have had little in the way of documentation aside from expensive, hand-copied scrolls of the Talmud and Tanach. So, if they were to have a copy of Enoch's rare and prophetic book, then, yes, someone would have read it aloud.) It is said that Early Church fathers, such as Clement, Barnabas, and Irenaeus referenced and quoted from the Book of Enoch. Th D. JR Church made this statement in the book he published, “Enoch, The First Book Ever Written.” The late JR Church did a running commentary on it as he explains and defines what Enoch said.
      I have come to realize that verifiable evidence is not enough to convince some people of the necessity nor the authenticity of information that gives us more insight into Biblical events that are otherwise perpetually obscured. I am a strong believer that the answers are there, in scripture, and, if not they might be obtained through some other source, like the Book of Enoch.
      Keep this in mind as you read.
      Jude, the author of his own book, quotes a prophecy from Enoch that is not in our Bibles and can only be found in the Book of Enoch. The writer of Hebrews places Enoch in the hall of fame for his great faith, by which he walked off this earth and into God's arms, never to see death (Hebrews 11:5). And we find the name of Enoch in Luke 3:37, where he is listed in the lineage of Jesus Christ. I can't remember how we got there, but my friend said, then what do you do with Genesis 6:7 where God said, I am sorry that I made man?
      Perhaps I had attempted to point out how the fallen angels had, as Jude tells us, cohabited with the daughters of men, with the express purpose of circumventing God's plan of redemption. How can I make that statement? You have to go back to the garden where God is addressing Eve about her actions. She is cursed, but there is some good news, as one from her seed will bring about the redemption of the world. (Okay, I did not use the exact wording, but you should get a general idea.)
      Genesis 3:13-15 NASB Then the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?" And the woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate." 14) The LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, Cursed are you more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you will go, And dust you will eat All the days of your life; 15) And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel."
      Satan's evil plan almost worked prior to the flood.
      Consider what was happening at this time. God, seeing that the earth was FILLED with violence and that the thoughts of “men” were only evil. The fallen angels, by taking whomever they wanted among women, had filled the earth with hybrids. The International Standard Bible says it best.
      Genesis 6:4 ISV The Nephilim were on the earth at that time (and also immediately afterward), when those divine beings were having sexual relations with those human women, who gave birth to children for them. These children became the heroes and legendary figures of ancient times.
      These titans became the foundations of mythology.
      Question, does the word all indeed mean all? No, because there was at that time a handful; specifically the close lineage that produced Noah. This family line was, as yet, untouched by the genetic corruption that these fallen angels were introducing.
      So far I haven't focused on any passages that touch on the word all, but the question was asked, “didn't God say that he was sorry he created man on the earth?” Doesn't that phrase imply that God was offended by all, including Noah? There is nothing about this question or the verse, that paints a correct picture of God or His character. If He was disgusted with all, then why waste any time communing with Enoch. The disjointed logic we use when we focus on one verse out of context makes no sense and is incorrect. So let's rethink the generalized question, wasn't God sorry He created man.
      Genesis 6:6-7 NASB The LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7) The LORD said, "I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them."
      While it is true that the Bible translations range from sorry to regret, and grieved; but remember, God, put the man on earth so that He could share His life with and talk to the man.
      [Right here is where the understanding that God was not caught off guard by Satan's/Lucifer's actions, and the plan of salvation – that is the securing of the creation, including God's finest creation, man, was initiated. All of our confusion and misunderstandings stem from how we perceive these first few moments of time. God knew full well what would happen and adapted to the perverted twists. The day will come when our relationship with the Father will once again be restored to the condition it was prior to Adam's fall in the garden.]
      When you understand God's nature and character, the emotion of being sorry doesn't seem to accurately convey His heart toward men like Enoch, Methuselah or Noah, and they should be excluded from such a generalized statement. Therefore, it must mean something more specific.
      To merely quote this verse is to ignore the context in which it is said.
      The context begins in verse two, where fallen angels are taking human women, having intercourse with them, and filling the earth with their own version of hybrids. Not only that, but these hybrids are not just tall, they are massive, and they are violent hunters of humankind.
      Genesis 6:2-5 CJB the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were attractive; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose. 3) Adonai said, "My Spirit will not live in human beings forever, for they too are flesh; therefore their lifespan is to be 120 years." 4) The N'filim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward when the sons of God came into the daughters of men, and they bore children to them; these were the ancient heroes, men of renown. 5) Adonai saw that the people on earth were very wicked, that all the imaginings of their hearts were always of evil only.
      The attention grabber in this paragraph above is verse 5, where it says, “Adonai saw that the people on earth were very wicked, that all the imaginings of their hearts were always of evil only.” Evidently, the Satanic scheme to hijack the redemption of the earth was so efficient that it had reduced the unpolluted lineage from Adam to the close relatives of Noah.
      Now, if the earth had been infiltrated to the point there were only a handful of undamaged humans left, wouldn't God be justifiably disgusted to the point where he was not only willing but needed to remove this malignancy from the earth?
      Genesis 6:6-7 NASB The LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7) The LORD said, "I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them."
      Sorry, the word used in the NASB is the Hebrew word nâcham and means to sigh that is, breathe strongly; by implication to be sorry.
      For me, an implication is not a translation, nor is it definitive. It is, however, something that may explain or add clarity. The words sigh and breathe strongly are words that I can understand, as I do it frequently. I sigh when I am angry, frustrated, and have enough. In this case, God had enough.
      The phrase “he had made,” is the Hebrew word ‛āśāh: A verb meaning to do, to make, to accomplish, to complete. This frequently used Hebrew verb conveys the central notion of performing an activity with a distinct purpose, a moral obligation, or a goal in view (cf. Gen_11:6).
      I could just as comfortably read Genesis 6:6 as The Lord was extremely frustrated that His good intentions had come to this.
      Isaiah tells the reader that the earth was habitable in the day that it was formed, and yet, something transpired because there was most certainly some imperfection taking place.
      Isaiah 45:18 NASB For thus says the LORD, who created the heavens (He is the God who formed the earth and made it, He established it and did not create it a waste place, but formed it to be inhabited), "I am the LORD, and there is none else.
      Likewise, man was perfect on the day he was made as well.
      Genesis 1:27-31 NASB God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28) God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth." 29) Then God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; 30) and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to everything that moves on the earth which has life, I have given every green plant for food"; and it was so. 31) God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
      What is there about this paragraph above for God to be disgusted with? Nothing.
      How about here in Genesis 2:7-9?
      Genesis 2:7-9 NASB Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being. 8) The LORD God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed. 9) Out of the ground the LORD God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
      Still good. But things are about to change. I am cutting it short for space sake.
      Genesis 3:7-10 NASB Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked, and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings. 8) They heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden. 9) Then the LORD God called to the man, and said to him, "Where are you?" 10) He said, "I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself."
      Eve was deceived, but Adam was wide awake and chose to trash his relationship with God. The passage also demonstrates an event that may have happened on a daily basis, God communing with the man and his wife. The tragedy here is that the connectedness and ease of communication with God were now broken.
      I pointed out earlier, how in talking with the serpent, God said, “I will put enmity Between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.”
      Not too long after this, is when Satan's plan to stop this seed, gets put into action.
      Ask yourself a question. Through intercourse and a maintained level of violence, how long would it take you to redirect the global order of things?
      Now, consider the added benefit these hybrids had in their completion of Satan's ugly plan.
      Can you now see why the history of man on earth, has been riddled with holocausts?

      Hello again.  Long story short, I had an unfortunate, sudden but not unexpected death in the family recently.  The adult siblings all gathered.  5 families, 4 of which are lapsed or worse.  We get on the topic of faith, and I'm sent into action.  I defend truth as vehemently as I know how. However, I'm green, an amateur.  I was challenged on the great flood and I was tripped up.  A very sly objection I had never heard or had to defend anywhere.  I was challenged on the timing of the Bible vs. Gilgamesh when it comes to the great flood.  My only defense was to ask for empirical proof of dates and to explain the Bible was orally passed down for a long time as well. 
      I also explained how all the Messiah myths of old were simply false Christ stories attempting to fulfill old testament prophecy, and it's backwards to think those myths are the same thing as the Jesus Truth which in fact DID fulfill ALL prophecies (attempting to correlate this logic to the Genesis flood).  But I'm not satisfied with myself on the Gilgamesh topic and would like to ask if anyone could help basically debunk Gilgamesh as an empirical proof of an older flood story compared to Genesis? 
      I apologize if the answers are already archived here, I'm just trying to engage some positive discussion, any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi all,

      Here's another video, this one on the Days of Noah and Lot. It's a 6 minute animated feature which explores Jesus' comments from Luke 17:26-30. I look forward to hearing what others think and some positive discussion about this issues.

      I took a trip to San Diego to visit the Creation Museum. They had a display showing Adam & Eve riding dinosaurs, among other bizarre articles claiming Neanderthals were just like us humans but little shorter. They explained that baby dinosaurs and their eggs could have fit on board. I showed this to my college professor who said the answer is simple. Dinosaurs (except for a few of their bird descendants), died out around 65 millions yrs ago, whereas the oldest human fossil ever discovered was “Lucy” in Ethiopia in 1974. They carbon-dated her skeleton to be about 175-200k yrs old. So dinosaurs could not have lived at the same time as people. I’m not one of those Christians that believe the Earth is 6000 yrs old nor do I follow the ‘gap theory’. I asked my pastor and he said that dinosaurs did exist but human remains from that time period were washed away with the great flood making it hard to match the two. My neighbor lady (a retired nun) said she doesn’t even believe in dinosaurs since they’re not in the bible anywhere and believes it’s all a government conspiracy. Dinosaurs on the arc? Science tells me no. The bible tells me yes?
