LOS ANGELES, Feb. 28, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- According to the Hollywood Reporter "Oscar-winning actor Russell Crowe has been lobbying to get Pope Francis to agree to watch his new biblical adventure story Noah." But according to Los Angeles-based filmmaker, Ray Comfort, the movie is anything but a "biblical adventure." Comfort, whose award-winning movies have been seen by millions, has produced his own version of "Noah" and which is being released on the same day as the Hollywood version.
Comfort said, "It seems like a 'hail Mary' to the pope. Perhaps he, Darren Aronofsky and Paramount should have listened to their critics, when they had prescreening a long time ago. Maybe they will even consider making a sequel called 'Muhammad,' where they portray him as an evil character as they did with Noah, and see if Moslems file in two-by-two to see it. But they wouldn't dare malign Muhammad's character, because they know that there would be serious repercussions. With "Noah" they have shown that they have no respect for Christians and Jews, by painting Noah as a psychopath."
Comfort added "It's a no-brainer for Hollywood to have success at the box office. All they need do is make a movie about the Bible, have their 'poetic license,' but stay true to the Scriptures--and we will support you by the millions."
He then cited "The Ten Commandments," and "Ben Hur" as examples. The Ten Commandments became the highest-grossing film of 1956 and "Ben-Hur--A Tale of Christ" was the highest grossing film of 1959.
Comfort said, "They have no qualms about sensationalizing the story of Noah in order to make it more profitable. That's their bottom line. But the movie strays so far from the biblical account that it omits its essential message -- God's judgment for man's sin and evil. Taking 'poetic license' on this story further erodes the public's perception of the biblical account -- and of the Bible in general. That's why we produced our version of NOAH, which looks at him from a different perspective. We reveal ten undeniable Bible prophecies that link to Noah, and show that we are living in what the Bible calls 'the last days.'"
