I just saw the movie last night and enjoyed it. I think there are a lot of serious issues in here to think about, it's not a "fluff" movie like so
many that are produced. Yes, it's definitely not all faithful to the biblical story, but the bible stories are so abbreviated and without detailed
background info that there is a lot open to interpretation.
I don't think it was all just an attack against evangelicals, though there are definitely overtones of that in many sections. I was really intrigued
by Anthony Hopkins character Methuselah who seemed to have magical powers. Also the king raised interesting issues about the nature of man, and they
used him as a way to raise existential questions about humanity.
I thought it was good overall and would like to get a lot more information about what they were trying to convey about the magic mineral, the
watchers, how the descendants of Cain and Seth both thought the other ones were not legitimate humans, etc.
