Noah (Darren Aronofsky, 2014)

Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins

Noah is chosen by God to undertake a momentous mission before an apocalyptic flood cleanses the world.

Trivial, childish rubbish. I only watched it to see Hopkins play the oldest character anyone could ever play - and his heart isn't it. He's got made up, and he's said the lines, and he's taken his million dollars and walked away and tried to forget it. Not that it would have been hard: I have almost.

It's pretty similar to his performance in Thor: Ragnarok. It's understandable why Alec Guinness would have done it once - for Star Wars. And why Ian McKellen would have done it once - for Lord of the Rings. But more than once? Nobody really needs that much money. Integrity should be worth more than that.
