It's weirdness makes it great, but its far-too-oft banality diminishes it. Crowe is great, iconic and compelling, EVERYONE else (especially Hopkins and Noah's sons) is dreadful and tedious (That makes not one, but two almost-chemistry-free Crowe-Connolly movie-relationships).

I liked all his Apocalypse stuff, the photography, the iconography, I liked the ICELAND as scorched earth (the third scorched paradise after Prometheus and Oblivion).

I'll take The Fountain over this, or David Lynch's nuttier DUNE. Something about filtering Aronofsky's passion project through the filter of Lord of the Rings style blockbuster filmmaking kinda pissed me off. A fucking fist fight? Seriously? Shit like that makes me see the glass 1/2 empty when I should see the glass 2/3rd full.
