Skip to comments.Noah epic awash in flood of controversy for green agenda and taking liberties with Bible

It is truly a Hollywood epic of biblical proportions, the original disaster story of the man chosen by God to undertake the greatest rescue in history before an apocalyptic flood engulfs the world.
But even before it opens in America this week and Britain on April 4, Noah, a $130 million blockbuster with Russell Crowe in the lead role, is already awash in a turbulent sea of controversy.
The film, packed with special effects based around a massive replica arc built in Long Island near New York, also stars Sir Anthony Hopkins as Methuselah and Emma Watson, the Harry Potter actress, as Noah's adopted daughter.
Noah's director Darren Aronofsky, a self-described atheist who made the Oscar-nominated hit The Black Swan, has described the movie as is "the least biblical biblical film ever made" and called Noah "the first environmentalist". According to one early review, the name "God" is not actually spoken at any stage.

Did they work Jar Jar Binks into it too?
laugh as you will, but this article from the Daily Beast seems to confirm it:
(fourth paragraph from the end)
So the director is Jewish...
Anthony Hopkins has the old wise man role it seems until he is room temperature.
No, not really. To wit: “Noah’s director Darren Aronofsky, a self-described atheist”
I’ll bet you he is Jewish...
Worth the money just to see Anthony Hopkins. He’s one of the greatest actors alive today, IMO.
Sadly they ruined “The Day The Earth Stood Still” with an environmental theme and now they’re at it again. Seems to me the environmentalists are losing the battle of facts and now have to resort to propaganda, especially in films to younger and more impressionable children. Properly done, this film could have been a big hit, a status which I doubt it will reach as presented.
“Did they work Jar Jar Binks into it too?”
If there’s a scene of Jar Jar drowning, especially a nice lingering shot, I might have to go see this.
Whom to believe? We just can’t believe anyone’s reporting anymore, I guess.
Not when it comes to politiks or moving pictures. :-)
“Sadly they ruined The Day The Earth Stood Still with an environmental theme and now theyre at it again.”
That movie was so bad they even left out the signature line in the original film “Gort, Klatu Barata Nicto”.
Interesting. Here in Dallas all the ads for the flick have a disclaimer in there about “not taking any liberties, true to the biblical story, blah blah blah.”
I thought I smelled something.
Oh, yeah ...
That was the original.
I wanted to see somebody shove Jar-Jar out an airlock ...
I'll really be surprised if Muppets don't appear somewhere.
“Noah’s director Darren Aronofsky, a self-described atheist who made the Oscar-nominated hit The Black Swan, has described the movie as is “the least biblical biblical film ever made” and called Noah “the first environmentalist””.
I hear in the remake of the life of Jesus, he dies for our spotted owls.
** “the least biblical biblical film ever made”**
We knew that many weeks ago.
