Noah...(A Movie Critique)
Don't waste your money on this one! 🙁 

Produced by Paramount and starring Russell Crowe, it makes a mockery of the Biblical account.  

In fact, it's so bad that when allowed to be previewed by Bible-believing Christians, they demanded, and got, a disclaimer added to the promotional material.

In order not to tip their hand about how "unbiblical" the movie is, the promotional materials and video trailer give no hint at the large Biblical deviations taken in the script. 

The original movie production went over budget so before more money was made available, test screenings were given to three groups of people: Jews, Christians and general public.  

And from the screenings, Hollywood brass insisted on changes to the script they believe will make it sell better. From that you can derive its bottom line purpose--it's a good movie if it makes money. They apparently could care less if it's accurate. 

Noah himself is presented as a very dark character and, you'll love this, he is the very first environmentalist! Oh please!
Of course, the Bible says Noah was the only righteous man left on the planet! And Noah is even portrayed having "survivor's guilt" after living through the flood. Oh please!
The Bible warns those of us living  in the last days that one of the characteristics would be giving them what they want.

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires," prophecy being fulfilled. 2 Tim 4:3

So it behooves us to stick with the only thing we can trust, the written Word of God. And by armoring up you can be more discerning and able to exhort one another with the truth!
