Noah by Darren Aronofsky, 2014 (PG-13)
This adaptation of the story of Noah depicts the visions that led him to voice dire prophesies of apocalypse and to build an ark to survive. As he labors to save his family, Noah asks for help from a band of angels called the Watchers.
Because I enjoyed watching the movie as a pure fiction, it was an enjoyable journey, with great actors and performances. The special effects are great, the rhythm entertaining... Only I couldn't get myself to compare to the bible's writing, which I read afterwards, and have little to do with the movie. So to clarify, do not watch the movie as a message from the bible but as Aronofsky's personal view on Noah's joourney.
