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.

Trevor Johnston
Radio Times
October 21, 2010
Stumbles every time it attempts to rise above the perfunctory, with its tiresome comic-relief geese and bog-standard internecine rivalry in the wolf pack.

A poorly written and disappointingly animated adventure that may keep the wee'uns happy for a while but will leave the adults snoozing.

Though predictable and routine, Alpha and Omega will be enjoyed by youngsters under eight regardless of whether they see the 3D version.

It certainly gives the nippers their slapstick fix. Sadly, the only sense of wonder it will stir in their parents is when it will all end.

Aimed squarely at the very young, this cute animation still feels far too rushed to spend any significant time on.

The fact this is out in the same week as the fluffy owl movie beggars belief. It doesn't even belong in the same ruddy century.

It?s all pretty bland, with uninvolving characters, unfunny comedic relief and weak computer graphics (made even worse by unnecessary 3D effects).

'Alpha and Omega' enters the crowded marketplace with little to say for itself.

The 3-D angle is the only one I can identify to justify Alpha and Omega not going straight to DVD, but it's a double-edged sword.

It's worth howling about!

Because of the lacklustre rom-com script and flaccid direction - not to mention the terror on kids' faces with the snarling wolves slaughtering stampeding caribou - wait to howl with the DVD.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

A thrilling adventure full of imagination and humor. It's the best animated film of the season. You don't have to be a kid to enjoy it.

Lionsgate's entree into 3-D animation ignores the characters' animalistic appeal and, instead, rewrites wolf culture in a lifeless romp.

Alpha and Omega proves that sometimes more is more and less is less for a reason.
