In the prehistoric past, a young man struggles to return home after being separated from his tribe during a buffalo hunt. He finds a similarly lost wolf companion and starts a friendship that would change humanity.
An epic adventure set in the last Ice Age, Alpha is a fascinating, visually stunning story that shines a light on the origins of man's best friend. While on his first hunt with his tribe's most elite group, a young man is injured and must learn to survive alone in the wilderness. After the young man reluctantly tames a lone wolf abandoned by its pack, the pair learn to rely on each other and become unlikely allies, enduring countless dangers and overwhelming odds in order to find their way home before winter arrives.
Expectations were through the roof after seeing this movie advertised for over a year. It lived up to about 70-70% of the hype
My whole family watched (14 & 16 yo included). Everyone loved it and rallied around the protagonist's journey and plights.
Subtitle driven, but not so much that it distracted from enjoying the movie. Movie almost did not require dialogue, but was a nice inclusion. And this is coming from a guy that avoids anything that gets Emmy awards or Sundance film festival recognition, as I like to enjoy my movies, not analyze them as if I was a movie critic trying to impress my peers. Basically my long winded way of saying, put the phone app down and go watch it.
