Last evening at the NRB (National Religious Broadcasters) Convention in Nashville, I attended a panel discussion on the new Noah movie that will be in theaters soon. We were shown a few short clips from the movie. Two of the people in the panel are involved with Hollywood, one of them being a consultant for the movie in regard to biblical issues.
My conclusion? From a biblical perspective--the movie is going to be worse than I thought it was. What a waste! Hollywood needs to keep out of making movies with biblical themes!
The blog I wrote last year based on a review of the movie by a staff member who saw a rough cut preview, accurately represented what we were told about the movie at this discussion. So I include a link to my blog again for you:
Certainly Christians will need to be ready to talk about Noah, the Flood, and topics of sin, judgment and salvation with those who do see this quite anti-biblical movie. But to do this, I encourage you to use the AiG website to ensure you have lots of accurate information ready.
I don't encourage anyone to see the movie, but we will have a researcher go to the movie to write a detailed review for you, once it's released in theaters.
By the way, the movie does start with a representation of how life God supposedly created life--by evolution! It does apparently represent Adam and Eve as being created separately.
The movie has a theme of extreme environmentalism. And the Noah of the Bible (a preacher of righteousness and one who did what God told him to do with great reverence), is NOT the Noah of this movie.
As a statement from Paramount stated, it is a movie 'inspired' by the account in the Bible.
But it's FAR from biblical.
My advice? Don't waste your time and money--and don't subject your kids to it.
