That ‘other’ Noah Movie

A while ago we had the trailer for the other Noah movie, called “Noah and The Last Days”. Here is the movie itself…

I’m confused why this is advertised as a Noah movie, while its a simply a series of evangelistic interviews with people in the street, mixed with documentary and commentary with nice visual aids… Not really a movie.

It seems there is a Noah Movie. But is it Biblical?

Its hard to miss, but there is a Noah movie that has just come out in cinemas.

Am I going to rush to see it? No. Is it because of the massive cost of going to the cinema these days? No. Is it because we’ll have to ask the grandparents to babysit again? No. I just can’t help but think its a little like the movie Titanic. You see, where people sat down and watched Titanic for hours, just to see if it’ll hit an iceberg or not, I also already know whats going to happen in the Noah Movie. (Spoiler Alert – The Titanic ship does hit the iceberg)

By simply opening up my Bible, I can tell you what is in the Noah movie. Genesis chapter 5 talks about Noah being 500 years old, so I’m thinking some heavy “old man” make up. This old man is living in a violent world with Nephilim and “sons of God” roaming around the place, when one day God (who has the only speaking role in the movie) shows up and says:


“I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. 14 So make yourself an ark of cypress[c] wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. 15 This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high.[d] 16 Make a roof for it, leaving below the roof an opening one cubit[e] high all around.[f] Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks. 17 I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that has the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will perish. 18 But I will establish my covenant with you,and you will enter the ark—you and your sons and your wife and your sons’ wives with you. 19 You are to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, male and female, to keep them alive with you. 20 Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and of every kind of creature that moves along the ground will come to you to be kept alive. 21 You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten and store it away as food for you and for them.

As the Bible then says: “Noah did everything just as God commanded him.“. I would imagine the scene following the one sided conversation with God being a montage of clips showing Noah doing the above.

At this point I worry that the movie is going to be a bit repetitive, as God reappears for another one sided chat / montage scene, but thankfully it doesn’t get that bad, as this is when animal pairs come along, the rains start, and Noah and his family silently enter the arc. Its worth bearing in mind that no one has noticed a giant ark being built, therefore no one outside of Noahs family is seen in the movie.

Nothing particular happens on the ark, and the movie motors through the 40 days and nights pretty quickly, until we get to this funny little scene where Noah starts releasing birds from the ark. Soon after this, the water disappears, the ark is opened and God invites them into the new world.

Therefore I can conclude that the Noah movie will be about ten minutes long, have an all male cast, we’ll know its a violent world (yet see no violence), and the movie will have only one speaking part.

I guess I don’t even need to see it on Netflix when it comes out.

The above mildly sarcastic guess work is based on Genesis Chapter 5, 6, and 7.

The Fake Noah, and The Real Thing?

It seems the Hollywood biblical epic “Noah”, has some competition in the shape of “Noah and the Last Days”.

Whats the difference between these two?  Well according to the guy behind Noah and the Last Days, ““Theirs is a fake Noah; ours is the real thing.”

According to (quoting Ray Comfort the film maker involved) :

“They [Hollywood] have no qualms about sensationalizing the story of Noah in order to make it more profitable. That’s their bottom line,” Comfort told ASSIST News about the Paramount picture. “But the movie strays so far from the biblical account that it omits its essential message: God’s judgment for man’s sin and evil. Taking ‘poetic license’ on this story further erodes the public’s perception of the biblical account and of the Bible in general.

“That’s why we produced our version of Noah, which looks at him from a different perspective,” Comfort continued. “We reveal ten undeniable Bible prophecies that link to Noah, and show that we are living in what the Bible calls ‘the last days.’”


The trailer also seems a little different to the Hollywood Noah trailer as well…

Personally I cant help but think this is just a bandwagon thats been jumped on.

Noah Trailer

With “Left Behind”, The Jesus Movie, and “Noah”, it looks like 2014 is actually going to be a year when Hollywood gets releasing Bible Movies.


Question. If Noah is successful, the natural thing to expect would be a sequel. What would a Noah sequel look like?

Introducing. Noah.

Something a little bit bootlegged, but I thought some people may be interested in the trailer for “Noah”, the movie adaption of… Noah. Between this and The Son of God, it looks like 2014 may see the return of big Bible movies to our local cinemas.
