Todd McCarthy at The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 90. He said: “Darren Aronofsky wrestles one of scripture’s most primal stories to the ground and extracts something vital and audacious, while also pushing some aggressive environmentalism, in Noah.”

Richard Roeper at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it an 88 score, stating, “This is a Noah for the 21st century, one of the most dazzling and unforgettable biblical epics ever put on film.” Kenneth Turan over at the Los Angeles Times, gave it an 80, saying, “Noah manages to blend the expected with the unexpected and does it with so much gusto and cinematic energy you won’t want to divert your eyes from the screen.”

Scott Foundas at Variety, gave it an 80, stating, ” It is never less than fascinating — and sometimes dazzling — in its ambitions.” Matt Zoller Seitz at RogerEbert.com, gave it a 75 grade. He stated: “Noah is more of a surrealist nightmare disaster picture fused to a parable of human greed and compassion, all based on the bestselling book of all time, the Bible, mainly the Book of Genesis.”
