Ooops! Noah is Gone... (2015)

No Noah

With news of the great flood reaching the animals, Dave and his son Finny, a couple of Nestrians, make their way to the Ark. Trouble is that Nestrians are not on the list and so things don't look good for them. That is when Dave and Finny manage to sneak on board thanks to Hazel and her daughter Leah, two Grymps. Whilst Hazel is not overly happy about Dave having used them to get him and his son aboard they find themselves forced to work together when Finny and Leah fall over board and need to reach the top of a mountain in the hope of surviving.

Oh I do like finding reviews from those who for whatever reason have issues with Christianity because they tend to show themselves up. Take "Ooops! Noah is Gone...", a children's animation which I found under three different names, I read a couple of reviews from people who slammed it for being a bible movie because they recognized the story of Noah and the Ark. Yet in truth this just uses the Ark story as a jumping off point for an adventure movie involving two children, a Nestrian and a Grymp, who must try to get to high ground to survive. In fact there is no Noah even in this movie and as such to say this is either a Bible movie or a Christian movie is stretching things to breaking point. I would even say that some Christians might take offence with how this changes things stated in the Bible.

But look; "Ooops! Noah is Gone...", or what ever you want to call it, is a movie made for children where we have a couple of cute animal children having a survival adventure and a couple of parent animals who are chalk n cheese but forced to get on to try and save their children. And to be honest whilst the humour didn't do much for me as a grown up the amusing nature of the animal characters works for a younger audience especially with this featuring a lot of creations which are out of the ordinary.

What this all boils down to is that "Ooops! Noah is Gone..." is just a cute animation from young children who will enjoy the amusing natures of the characters and the adventures they have trying to get to safety. But for grown ups this doesn't have much to offer.
