Visionary filmmaker Darren Aronofsky tells the story by the book not only the story of Noah and the Flood as it appears in the Torah despite many explaining and debating its fidelity to traditional Jewish texts even after having the consultation with the rabbis and scholars from multiple Judaic denominations. <NOAH> was't built in just one day, there are confusion and you don't have to be religious to understand how this movie develop. With a sweeping visuals grounded by strong performance in service of a timeless tale told on a human scale. Aronofsky had struggle to bring the Bible epic into the 21st century with courage, sacrifice and hope. This retelling of Noah and the Ark makes little attempt to ameliorate its depiction of humanity as inherently barbaric or to render God as compassionate, the creator here is punishing, inscrutable and despotic. The battle sequences and CG creation was rather silly for the sake of giving an epic fantasy feel to the movie and truly uninteresting, more like a video game instead. The movie as a whole is a mixed bag, it is overlong and times sluggish, there are stretches when it drags. From <Black Swan> to <Noah> Aronosfky better be more alert in his next film making before his audience being dragged into the dark circle once more, An again, 3D or IMAX, does it really matter anymore?
