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 transported halfway across the country they must work together to get back to their natural habitat. And it won't be easy either, because the one thing Humphrey and Kate can agree on is that they don't have anything in common. Perhaps by working together toward a common goal, however, the two contentious traveling companions will finally realize that even lone wolves can use a helping paw every once in a while. Christina Ricci, Danny Glover, Dennis Hopper, and Larry Miller also supply voices for the Crest Animation production, helmed by Anthony Bell and Ben Gluck from a script by Chris Denk. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

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

  • 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.

  • Alpha and Omega, an unambitious 3-D animation about a couple of young wolves in love, isn't so much howlingly bad as it is howlingly boring.

    Sep 17, 2010 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • It's an ugly, laughless 3-D cartoon about wolves that is so wussified and stupidified that it'll bore kids and make their adult minders wish they'd done something comparatively interesting, like cleaning the gutters in the rain.

    Sep 17, 2010 | Rating: 0.5/4
  • The story comes off as patchwork, with a climax cribbed from The Lion King and odd musical sequences that seem inspired by …ahem, classic Mariah Carey. It's not quite the vision of love intended.

    Sep 17, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/5
  • Has old-fashioned backgrounds that occasionally achieve a touch of grandeur, but that's about the best that can be said for it.

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

    Pretty much a rip-off of Lion King and the visuals are atrocious. Skip it.

    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.

    terrible humor with terrible plots, counting this as the most horribly terrible animated movie for decades to come! F
