Trivia

Paramount Pictures were very worried about how Noah (2014) and its religious theme would be treated properly, so they screen tested three different rough cuts of the film, both without the approval and knowledge of Darren Aronofsky and all of the versions met with resounding criticism from Christian audiences. It has, since then, led to countless controversy and debacle on its correspondence to the biblical text found in the Book of Genesis. Aronofsky said that he was very unhappy with Paramount testing alternate versions of Noah that were not 'true to his vision': "I was upset - of course. No one has ever done that to me. I imagine if I made comedies and horror films, it would be helpful. In dramas, it's very, very hard to do. I've never been open to it. I don't believe that." After much discussion and compromise, the studio announced on February 12 that Darren Aronofsky's version, not any of the studio's alternate versions, will be the final cut of Noah. "They tried what they wanted to try, and eventually they came back. My version of the film hasn't been tested... It's what we wrote and what was greenlighted," Aronofsky said. It will not be test screened until post production is finished, as per Aronofsky's wishes. See more »

Goofs

All the animals are sedated and are all seen lying down. An elephant normally only sleeps for about four hours a day. If an elephant were to lie on its side for more than a day (for example) the weight of its internal organs would cause them to rupture and fail. See more »

Will leave most people bewildered
16 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

"Noah's Ark" is one of those age old stories that I'm surprised hasn't really been made into a movie before now. But when you see the final result of this dreary mess, maybe there's an actual serious reason that it hadn't been tackled before.

Most people (myself included) are only going to watch this flick for the infamous "flood scene." But the movie tries so hard to be "something different" it wouldn't off came as a surprise if that scene didn't even come. I really can't see this movie pleasing anyone who bothers to watch it. Neither the relgious folk, who it may offend, or the cinema going masses, who are simply looking for a couple of hours of explosive entertainment, are going to get much out of it. The original Noahs ark is such a short story, that it would have to be almost entirely changed for a movie. And it has been. In a bad way!

The "2 of every animal" stuff fills about 2 minutes of the flick, while the rest is like some tacky soap opera, crossed with a poor mans "Lord of the rings." Russell Crowe plays Noah, so that he can tick off another larger than life role from his check-book. But he does little but sport a varying collection of beards. While some of the other (though decent) actors, are stuck playing over-done characters.

Noah himself isn't the "nice-guy" he's suppose to be here. But nothings what its suppose to be is it? I mean, why are all the animals I wanted to see knocked out/not there for 95 percent of the movie? Why are there all these plot twists that no-one is interested in? What the hell are those rock monster things suppose to be? Why is the (seriously over expensive) Ark shaped like a giant match box? And Why do I feel like I'm drunk watching this thing?

What would of maybe worked better as a family movie with some sort of important lesson (Please don't sin kids/Be bad kids) has instead been turned into a dark fairy tale that attempts to please everyone. But will in actual fact, please no-one. The Stories a shambles, Crowes "bad-ass" Noah is dislikeable, and the films overall poor special effects and over the top "everything" will leave most people bewildered when its all done.
