Finding Noah, a movie review

For over 2,000 years, man has been searching for the final resting place of Noah's Ark.  Though there have been many attempts, few have been able to fully explore the one place specifically noted in the Bible: Mount Ararat.  Located in Eastern Turkey, Agri Dagh or "The Painful Mountain" is the tallest mountain in the region and lies in the very center of a centuries old, geo-politically unstable hot spot.  With constant threats of deadly rock slides, hidden crevasses, and glacial ice falls, the Kurdish Rebel held mountain poses great risk to any explorer, let alone those performing a thorough scientific investigation.

Join director/producer Brent Baum and the FINDING NOAH film crew as they follow an expedition of intrepid explorers on a perilous trek up to Mt. Ararat's desolate summit.  There, using state of the art technology and real-time satellite imagery, this team of archeologists, scientists and professional mountaineers will begin a grid work of exploration unlike any before, hoping to finally resolve the age-old question:  did Noah and his Ark actually exist?

Shot in never-before filmed locations in the harshest of conditions, this unprecedented feature-length documentary shows just how far men are willing to go to discover the truth.  Narrated by Academy Award nominee Gary Sinise, FINDING NOAH is more than a quest for answers, it is a testament of the human spirit, where belief and the need for exploration transcend risk and limitation.

My review:
  I have always found the idea of Noah's Ark being found a fascinating idea. Part of me doubts it will ever be found, part of me wonders if God would let it be found, and yet another part of me hopes it will be found,

  I was happy to get this opportunity to review this movie/documentary before it even hits theaters. Via a link and password, I was able to view it on my computer.

  The documentary is two fold. They go over a lot of supposed sightings of the ark going back a couple of hundred years, and have photos that people took of what appears to be a large boat-like object in the ice. There are interviews with experts and people who have searched for the ark before. What I would call the main part of the documentary is the modern day search for the ark with interviews, commentary, and a lot of video shots from the guys on the expedition. They show a lot of area that most people haven't seen.

  I found the documentary fascinating, and from what people have said and shown by photos, it left me believing that the ark has been sighted before.

  I won't give away any spoilers, or say what the group found or didn't find, but I do recommend seeing Finding Noah.
