Such a emotional story, loved it
17 August 2018 | by chaysebrown-39779See all my reviews

Alpha is an Native America Language film by Sony and Columbia, and follows the story of 22-year-old Keda and Wolf Alpha, and they go on a adventure on how to get back to their family before winter starts. Now we cleared that out: here are my thoughts: I got the chance to go to a day early so me and my dad were the very first ones to see alpha, since nobody else was there. I thought the story was sad, the ending brought a happy ending, not going to say the ending because it comes Out tommorow, if you guys got to see this at regal like me, you would of got a free keychain, like I did. Movie was amazing & sad, I rate this a 10/10, But a quick note: IMDb says this is spoken English, BUT IT IS NOT. It is actually Native American, but it is subbed so I think this might be dubbed soon. These are Native American actors so I have no idea if this is gonna get dubbed or not. Out of all, this is great and I recommend this film to everyone who likes emotional stories and happy endings! But still, not better than Slender Man in my opinion. But still, Alpha was great.
