Movie of the week: Noah

Darren Aronofsky is about to go Old Testament in his new feature film. In his new film, God is about to purge the world he created for man’s wickedness and capacity for evil has run unchecked. This apocalypse will be one of great tidal waves swallowing the Earth. cleansing his creation of evil but the Almighty Creator of all things seeks to save what little purity the planet has left. He sends visions of the coming doom to an unsuspecting man and instructs him to build a vessel large enough to accommodate two of all of the world’s species as well as his own family. Darren Aronofsky’s new film stars Russell Crowe as “Noah,” which also stars Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Ray Winstone.

What am I expecting to see?: “Noah” boasts the promises of a visual epic that takes initiative with the original source material, yet stays faithful to the overall story. The story of Noah should be common knowledge to all, so I’m not expecting any big surprises or alterations to the story courtesy of Darren Aronofsky and Ari Handel. Russell Crowe appears to be in command of this epic but I want to see how the supporting cast including Connelly, Hopkins and Winstone will be depicted in this feature. “Noah” appears to be a film that is grand in the visual scale and thematic scale, but I’m intrigued by what lies within the narrative.
