Noah's Ark is neither among the best or worst of Golden Films. It does have its flaws, the character designs could have been more fluid, the songs are rather forgettable, the farmboy and the Princess' love could have been more padded out and developed, it felt rather bland and rushed into and the story while charming and attention-holding on the whole did drag in the middle. But I also give Noah's Ark credit for the colourful backgrounds, which were much more creative than I was expecting. Once again, the classical music choices were great, as nice as it was to hear Beethoven's 5th symphony(1st movement) and Wagner's Flying Dutchman and Lohengrin the most effective uses were Grieg's March of the Dwarfs which matched perfectly with the king's anger and the last movement of Beethoven's Pastoral symphony, which always gave me the impression of renewal and peace which was the case here. The writing is not as stilted or as corny as one would think, nothing thought-provoking but perfectly serviceable things considered. The characters were decent on the whole, I would have liked to have seen more of Noah, but he comes across as noble and dignified. The king is a good character, not too clichéd and quite good to introduce a sense of conflict. The two lovers are a little bland but still reasonably likable. The animals are very cute. The voice acting is good. All in all, I liked it even if I didn't love it. For what it was it was perfectly decent. 6/10 Bethany Cox
