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]

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.
November 27, 2018
"Alpha" proves that you can't really beat a good old boy-and-his-dog/wolf/wolf dog saga.
November 5, 2018
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.

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]

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.

Older onlookers won't mind it either as a shorter, sweeter version of The Revenant, minus the murders and revenge killings, of course!
September 26, 2018
It's not so much a performance from Smit-Mcphee as a totally credible and unselfconscious demonstration of what it would be like to fight for your life against hunger and exposure
September 23, 2018
Deceptively simple in its construction yet sweepingly epic, exciting and genuinely moving in its execution.
September 16, 2018
A tightly-fitted adventure movie that is, for all its ridiculously high concept and its bestiary of CGI Pleistocene fauna, pretty simple and direct.
September 10, 2018
Alpha entertains, touches and amazes. [Full review in Spanish]

There's something to be said for the simple joys of enjoying wholesome content on an evening out at the cinema, and this is where Alpha delivers.
