Alpha and Omega (2010)



Critic Consensus: With bland visuals and a dull, predictable plot, Alpha and Omega is a runt in 2010's animated litter.

Movie Info

Two mismatched wolves embark on a cross-country quest to get back home and restore peace in their pack after being relocated thousands of miles away by well-meaning park rangers. Quick-witted Humphrey (voice of Justin Long) likes to frolic with friends and play video games with squirrels; disciplined Kate (voice of Hayden Panettiere) likes to call the shots and hunt caribou. Normally, an omega wolf like Humphrey would never stand a chance with an alpha wolf like Kate, but when they're both … More

An animated flick that doesn't leave much of an impression. It's even difficult to recall what happened once it's over because it's so slight and sluggish.

The animation, coupled with a jarring use of 3D, makes for a visually unspectacular film that feels very similar to others that have come before it.

The 8-12s will love it, but grown-ups may feel they've seen lots of it before (especially the caribou stampede, a shameless pinch from The Lion King.)

There's nothing here that Disney hasn't done much better decades ago, and the script is a lame mixture of slapstick and sentiment.

Here is a pleasant, undemanding animated family comedy - decent enough, but it feels like a reshuffling of dozens of films you've seen before.

Audience Reviews for Alpha and Omega

Possibly the worst kids animated film I've seen for along long time. The visuals in this film are extremely basic and I'm not sure if that's on purpose or not...surely it can't be!!. It all looks so poor and much like a Saturday morning cartoon with shoddy animation, bad lip sync (or none), rubbish cliched characters and a hugely unoriginal plot. Voice casting involves one or two big names but I doubt they realised what a bottom of the barrel film this would be as we all know animated films these days are hot stuff...apart from this. Shame for Dennis Hopper as I think this was his last project.

The whole film stinks badly from start to finish with some terribly bad sequences that are shamefully poor and embarrassing even for younger viewers. They must know a good animated film when they see it these days.

I could see this having a bad rating, animated film seem to go down the pan, well this one did.

Justin Long is an ok voice actor, he did better in this then he did in Planet 51, which I personally disliked. The reason i'm giving Alpha and Omega an extremely positive review is quite simply because of the film's humour, it's un-boring interpretation on animated romance and its way of focusing on more than one central character. There is no main characetr in Alpha and Omega everyone is important to the film and I truly love the colours of this film. Alpha and Omega is a well made animated family film and is also a personal memorable favorite of mine.
