Very well written story and the visuals are amazing! Slow pace towards the end but it’s worth it. A tearjerker too!!
The movie...is a visual feast, one of the rare 3D films which was clearly designed with that extra dimension in mind.
Enjoyably old-fashioned in its narrative but crisply modern in technique, it is engaging enough even for those of us with no soft spot for pets.

Movie Info & Cast
When times get tough, it pays to have a tough friend. And the times don’t get much tougher than they were during the last Ice Age. Alpha is set 20,000 years ago and follows the journey of a young man (Kodi Smit-McPhee, X-Men: Apocalypse) who has been injured during his first hunt, then left for dead. Separated from his tribe and on his own in the harsh wilderness, he sets out to tame a lone wolf that has also been left behind by its pack. Turns out, a wolf makes a pretty solid “tough friend” to have at your back when you’re trying to survive a dangerous, unforgiving world.
Directed by Albert Hughes ( Menace II Society this is the tale of an unlikely friendship – one that may have laid the groundwork for countless dog shows and adorable Instagram accounts.
