Noah: Yes. Ahhh!
Oh, the flood! Oh, the arc! Oh, the disaster that struck the wicked on Earth!
This story starts at the beginning—creation, Adam, Eve, the serpent, the apple, all presented in rapid fire and repeated, like a chorus several times during the movie. It quickly moves through the generations that led to the birth and life of its main character, played brilliantly by Russell Crowe. As a man who cherishes his creator above all else and believes the human race must be annihilated, he's a scary character. Today, some might call him a zealot.
It's this dimension of his personality that makes Noah the powerful movie that it is.
Believe it. Or not.
