    Not without charm and bearing easy appeal to very young viewers.

    Abounding in dumb jokes that kids are bound to like but sometimes too scary for very young viewers, the movie -- also going out in 2D -- takes too long to find its footing and at best is proficient, not exhilarating.
  3. The sexual tension is thick between the woodland creatures in Alpha and Omega, an animated children's film with a plot that has more in common with "The Blue Lagoon" than "Bambi."
  4. If you have kids who are easily frightened, bring them to Alpha and Omega, a 3-D movie with training wheels. Kids may not like it, but they'll never fall off the ride.
  5. Parents with restless, animal-loving children may as well throw it a bone.
  6. Underwhelming in the style of most off-brand CG, Alpha and Omega is livened by pretty Rocky Mountain backdrops and leadened by stock characters and the wolves' weirdly prissy behavior.

    Occasionally cute but not much else, Alpha and Omega is an animated flick that doesn't leave much of an impression.
  8. A dog in wolf's clothing, Lionsgate's drab, anthropomorphic animal saga does little more than reconfirm the preeminence of Pixar.

    This talking-animal tale - has old-fashioned backgrounds that occasionally achieve a touch of grandeur, but that's about the best that can be said for it.

    Alpha and Omega is one of those rarities in the modern era of Hollywood animation: bad.

    Alpha and Omega is sweet, if not fresh.

    As with any movie, this kids' film is only as good as its writing - the jokes, the cute bits, the heart. And that's where Alpha and Omega comes up short.
  13. The 3-D angle is the only one I can identify to justify Alpha and Omega not going straight to DVD.

    This is a shameless mélange of plot elements from already generic Disney knockoffs.
  15. The littlest children in your house may find something to titter at from time to time, but based on the reaction of a young screening audience, it won't be often.

    awful and full of sexual undertones, the howling being the main reason our "hero's" got kidnapped is were i was ready to return this garbage, not for kids that is for sure Full Review »

    Alpha and Omega deserves to burn in movie hell. The sexual tension is totally inappropriate for younger kids, while older people will roll their eyes at the dumb jokes and become quickly bored with the plot. Full Review »
