BEFORE you go to see the Noah movie read this!
UPDATED!!! Scroll down for update!
First of all you need to read the biblical account of Noah even before simply listening to or reading other people’s reviews of this movie. And absolutely you need to read the biblical account before you actually go to see it.
The account of Noah starts at the end of Genesis chapter 5 and continues (including after the flood up to his death) into chapter 9. Read it online at blueletterbible.org or biblehub.com or studylight.org.
Now listen to the filmmaker and starring actor tell a little about the film:

If you end up taking someone to see the film, like a youth group, please, please, please, include a discussion time afterwards that includes comparing it to the biblical account. The best discussion would be about what parts of the film were different from the biblical account and why the filmmakers (or the “spirit” influencing the filmmakers) might have wanted to make those specific changes.
If you’ve gone to see the movie please share what you liked and disliked about the movie in the comment section below or which review from this post was the most helpful to help you make your decision to go or not to go.
