Truly unsettling.

Noah threatens to kill the child of Japheth's wife if it is a girl because God doesn't want wicked humans on the planet any more. She has twin daughters, in the end Noah is dissuaded from committing infanticide, and we get to suppose these baby girls will grow up and be wives for the other two sons, Shem and Cham. Not even close to any of the Flood "myths" I've ever read. Absolute trash.

Too much violence

Zero Stars

I’m annoyed I had to even give this movie 1 star...it didn’t even deserve that. Once again Hollywood has taken “creative liberties” too far and made a mockery of a great story from the Bible. Even my kids couldn’t believe what they were seeing. DO NOT WASTE your time.
