  • 1 star "Sorry but this is a real stinker. Further proof that Hollywood decision-makers are not that clever. Producers, director, cast and especially moviegoers should have stayed clear of this boring retelling of a story we all know and only needed to hear it once. What were they thinking? $140 million??"
  • 3 stars "It was a good movie, good special effects and good acting but overall just a mediocre movie. The script was not anything special and although the actors did good jobs, I felt it was falling flat. It was also too long and could have had 30+ minutes cut from it without losing the storyline."
  • 4 stars "Just watched it right now. I loved it ! A lot better than Noah ... I loved the plagues (not literally) the costumes, the make up and the crossing of the sea...I absolutely hated the idea of using a child to represent God. Children to me are put far too up on a pedestal in society and I don't think they're as innocent as people would want everyone to believe I do think that any human to play God is not exactly blasphemous but it irks me and kind of annoys me. They should have just left it as a burning bush with some voice ...oh well, no movie is perfect. Would highly recommend anyone to see it though."
