An interesting review on the “least biblical biblical movie” ever made (says its Director)

In “Noah”, the fallen angels are “good guys” that were kicked out of heaven because of their compassion for humanity, they help Noah build the ark, and they ascend to heaven when they die helping defend the ark against a band of marauding evil humans. Director Darren Aronofsky stated that he attempted to make “the least biblical biblical film ever made”, and he may have achieved that. In “Noah”, almost everything is the opposite of what it should be. Instead of villains, the fallen angels are heroes. Instead of a preacher of righteousness, Noah is depicted as a psychopathic maniac that hates humanity and wants to kill his unborn grandchild if it is a girl. The movie somehow finds a way to avoid using the word “God” the entire time, and during a scene where Noah explains to his family how the world was “created”, the film displays visuals depicting Darwinian evolution. But all of the controversy surrounding the film only seems to have helped it at the box office. In fact, it pulled in approximately 44 million dollars in North America alone over opening weekend.

When I first heard that a movie about Noah starring Russell Crowe was coming out, I was very excited. I thought that it could spark discussion about one of the most important events in human history.

Unfortunately, the film twists and distorts the story of Noah so badly that it is virtually unrecognizable. And Americans are so dumbed down these days that many of them will end up believing that Aronofsky’s version is what the Bible actually says.

So before we get into the specifics of what “Noah” says about the fallen angels, let us first take a look at what the Scriptures tell us.

In Genesis 6:1-4 we read the following…

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

Obviously the fact that fallen angels got together with human women and produced hybrid offspring displeased God greatly, and in the book of Jude we read that these fallen angels are kept in chains awaiting the day of judgment…

And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
