A motorcycle stunt rider turns to robbing banks as a way to provide for his lover and their newborn child, a decision that puts him on a collision course with an ambitious rookie cop navigating a department ruled by a corrupt detective.
Darren Aronofsky brought in frequent collaborator Ari Handel and Canadian artist Niko Henrichon to adapt the script into a 2011 graphic novel "Noé: Pour la cruauté des hommes" ("Noah: For the Cruelty of Men"). This novel serves as an influence on the film. See more »

It's a 2 instead of a 1 because there are elements that are so riotously silly you will laugh uncontrollably. On the basis of being a "so bad it's good" movie, this one provides unintentional humor that makes it worth sitting through the whole mess.
First, don't expect a coherent story, secular or biblical. Perhaps this could be called a psychotic story, if such a classification exists. There are bizarre interpretations of parts of the original Noah story, some that take make you wonder what the writers were smoking. One set of creatures reminded me of muppet characters from a Starwars prequel. This movie stinks worse than the animals on the Ark must have smelled.
Of course, the plot, what little of it that can be deciphered, goes off in hundreds of dead-end directions. The human characters are emo, brainless, and cartoonish. People who have been hand-picked to survive a global holocaust, and repopulate the Earth, probably would have shown more sense than these people do. Look for some lingo that is oozing with political correctness. This is the kind of movie that would have fit in perfectly as one of the MST3K "experiments."
Thumbs down for this movie if you want to see a story about Noah, or even a run-of-the-mill adventure flick. However, thumbs up go to this movie if you love to laugh at crummy movies.
