Decent actually, aside from the Easter Egg stone and painting set decorations I guess the cavemen had in their pockets if someone croaked. But I loved the prehistoric animals. A fun movie experience.

Hughes just delivered the type of gripping original movie we pine for whenever a new Transformers flick steamrolls through multiplexes

It is very effective, involving a charming aura of prehistoric mysticism and for making use of a primitive idiom. [Full Review in Spanish]

Alpha tells an interesting story with a compelling lead performance, but the pacing issues make the movie a struggle to get through.

Though the humans speak in a language that requires subtitles, the actors do manage to convey their emotions very well. Go in with no expectations, and enjoy this movie for what it is.

This movie is about a billion times better than it has any right to be.

Director Albert Hughes tells the story in a reasonably effective low-key manner that mostly eschews melodrama for realism.

When Alpha hews close to its core focus, it howls with heart.

A compelling story of endurance, determination and friendship.

Yes, it's Old Yeller meets Hell in the Pacific, and I wish the movie were half as good as that logline suggests it would be.

The familiar "boy and his dog" tale receives a bit of a welcome twist.

Gorgeous to behold. Largely emotionally inert.

"Alpha" proves that you can't really beat a good old boy-and-his-dog/wolf/wolf dog saga.

An engrossing survival film about the plight of prehistoric people trying to make ends meet amidst the beauty and savagery of a landscape they are a few aeons from dominating.

This story of friendship between man and his can generate empathy instantly, delivering a very pleasant and pleasant moment to the audience. [Full Review in Spanish]

Director Albert Hughes... puts a brave face on a story that has tension and builds on the base of that fellowship between the wolf and man. [Full review in Spanish]

When it works, it's majestic; when it doesn't, it's like one of those t-shirts with an airbrushed image of a wolf howling at the moon, rendered in absurd clarity.
October 13, 2018
Parental difference of opinion is put to the test throughout. And there's a significant twist at the end that takes this 20,000-year-old story smack into the #MeToo moment.

Gets lost in the stone age.
