7 of the Worst Mistakes in the Movie 'Noah'
7 Craziest Mistakes in the Movie 'Noah' by J. Lee Grady, Charisma Magazine I wanted to like the new film until I realized it wasn't based on the Bible.

It's been more than a week since I saw the new movie Noah, and I'm still scratching my head-and reading Genesis to clear my brain. Not since The Last Temptation of Christ in 1988 has Hollywood so irreverently botched a Bible story. It's too bad there's no refund policy at the Cineplex.

I wanted Noah to be good. We could use a loud reminder that God destroyed the world thousands of years ago with a flood. Shame on me for expecting Hollywood to get the story right. Despite some amazing special effects, a talented cast and a full-scale replica of Noah's ark, the film is convoluted, bizarre and blasphemous.

I guess we shouldn't be surprised. Noah's director, Darren Aronofsky, told The New Yorker that his movie is "the least-biblical biblical film ever made." His goal all along was to create an alternative version of the Genesis story-one that is more in line with ancient gnostic heresies than with the Bible. And when Paramount Pictures pressured Aronofsky to re-edit the film to please evangelical Christians, he refused.

On the bright side, at least there are thousands of people around the world who are now talking about a Bible story they weren't familiar with. If you happen to get into a conversation about Noah, I hope you'll help them understand the difference between the true account and this strange Hollywood version. Here are seven of the biggest blunders made in the new movie:
