The movie Noah started showing in theaters Friday, and it’s generating both praise and controversy around the Carolinas. Critics say it’s not Biblical. Fans say it’s educational and entertaining.

5 year old P.J. Morris came with his classmates from the Talented Tenth Academy in Charlotte Friday to watch the movie. He said, “It made Noah into what he really isn’t, made him into a psychopath, and I didn’t really like it, and I thought, ‘Wait. Hold on. Noah’s a good person, and why would he try to murder family and babies?”

P.J.’s teacher, Audrey Howard, liked the movie. She said, “It was great. It was informative. It kind of brought the Bible alive for me.”

Local pastor Jimmy Britt of Rocky River Church tells My Fox Carolinas the movie only shows one side of Noah and God. He says it shows God as a judge, but not God as a savior.

John Reeves, professor of Religious Studies at UNCC, says it’s important to recognize multiple versions of Noah’s story, such as what’s found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. Reeves said, “We get a more mythological flavored narrative that involves fallen angels and a race of giants that had been engendered as a result of marriages that had been contracted between these fallen angels and human women.”
