As far as action heroes go, biblical characters are hardly John McClane or even Turner and Hooch. Sure, you’ve got King David and Solomon, but all those other heroes are all about the parables and stuff. With Russell Crowe taking on the role of Noah though, we’re getting a different version of the character, that takes advantage of all that Australian aggression.
Academy Award-winner Russell Crowe stars as Noah, a man chosen by God for a great task before an apocalyptic flood destroys the world.
Crowe is the ark body builder on a mission to save the animal kingdom in a landscape that has been ruined by humanity, joined by Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson and the rest of his offspring as the Roland Emmerich in the sky tells him to get busy buildin’ or get busy dyin’ with everyone else. Ray Winstone looks like he might steal the show here, as the ruthless antagonist to Noah, and there’s a hint of that supernatural action that director Darren Aronofsky has been promising for his film.
It looks promising, and it’ll be out next year March 28.
