Am still not sure why I agreed to review never mind even watch this awful
film. Not much of a birthday treat for myself!
The obvious pun is that it sinks under the weight of a predominant and
tedious use of CGI with no new slant on what some might describe as a
biblical fairy story.
Russell Crowe plays Noah and is almost as badly miscast as when he portrayed
Robin Hood with an Irish accent.
Equally miscast is Anthony Hopkins as Noah's grandfather Methuselah,
and like Crowe, his best acting days are behind him.
As for Ray Winstone's role in the film as leader of the hordes who attack
the Watchers, stone creatures exiled from Eden and dogged by humans, the
nausea level rose even further.
Take a trip on a Mersey Ferry rather then even consider watching this
claptrap about the Ark. You will enjoy yourself more.
