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

Claudia Puig | USA Today

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.
