Storyline

A group of intrepid explorers go on a journey of discovery and excitement as they climb and live atop a 17,000ft mountain in Eastern Turkey to conduct a scientific expedition to determine the final resting place of Noah's Ark. Finding Noah is more than a quest for answers, it is a testament of the human spirit, where belief and the need for exploration transcend risk and limitations.

They Found Spiritual Fulfillment,l but No Ark
12 February 2019 | by mabraham1See all my reviews

While I had expected this to be a thrilling documentary, it turned out to be a drama of guys finding spiritual fulfillment, but no ark. If this was billed as a documentary, why not ask Gary Sinise to narrate what's happening throughout the whole movie, rather than the brief synopsis at the end? What about name graphics for the scientists, theologians, and lead explorers?

I found the chaotic storyline a bit tough to digest-requiring suspension of reality to weave in plot fragments like this one: about 30 minutes is spent trekking the long arduous journey up Mt. Ararat, where many holes were drilled, but found empty. Then somehow a Sherpa runs to what appears to be an outlying gift shop, picks up a diamond-studded hollow excavation bit for extracting wood sample, and returns in record time to attempt extracting some gopher wood in the same afternoon? Who forgot to bring that seemingly extremely important bit?? Well why not just rent a few earthmovers and backhoes from the local Cat dealer and hire Turkish sherpas to haul it up?

The other odd scenes involved the explorers on the Mr. Ararat dig site calling the boss back home via sat-phone for him to say obtuse things like, "well, just keep digging more holes", etc.

I believe the ark will be found on Mt. Ararat, and my faith in God couldn't be any stronger if they found the ark or not. But what would have made the movie memorably funny would be if they plunged the bit into the glacier field and pulled up a jelly donut from one of the previous explorers.
