Review Roundup: Open the Floodgates - NOAH Hits Theaters Today!

On Friday, Academy Award nominated director Darren Aronofsky releases the Biblically-inspired epic NOAH.

The film tells the tale of the prophet who withstood the great flood from a new psychological perspective. Russell Crowe stars in the title role, alongside Jennifer Connelly, Saoirse Ronan, Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins and more.

What did the critics have to say?

Kenneth Turan | Los Angeles Times

"As much a fantasia inspired by the Old Testament as a literal retelling of that tale, Noah manages to blend the expected with the unexpected and does it with so much gusto and cinematic energy you won't want to divert your eyes from the screen." Read full review here.

A.O. Scott | New York Times

"Mr. Aronofsky's earnest, uneven, intermittently powerful film, is both a psychological case study and a parable of hubris and humility." Read full review here.

Claudia Puig | USA Today

"NOAH is no by-the-book Bible story. Think of it as a visually mesmerizing sci-fi adventure saga loosely based on the book of Genesis." Read full review here.

Peter Travers | Rolling Stone

"Pick your gospel: the Scriptures or rock & roll. Both figure into director Darren Aronofsky's NOAH, a biblical epic that follows no rules except its creator's teeming imagination." Read full review here.
