Consensus: With bland visuals and a dull, predictable plot, Alpha and Omega is a runt in 2010's animated litter.

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.

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.

The animation, coupled with a jarring use of 3D, makes for a visually unspectacular film that feels very similar to others that have come before it.

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.

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

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.

After preliminary special-effects high jinks -- wolves bobsledding a hollow log down a twisty mountain run -- Alpha and Omega kicks into An Important Life Lesson.

The 8-12s will love it, but grown-ups may feel they've seen lots of it before (especially the caribou stampede, a shameless pinch from The Lion King.)

Possibly the worst kids animated film I've seen for along long time. The visuals in this film are extremely basic and I'm not sure if that's on… More

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

Alpha and Omega was just bad. It starts off by throwing everything at you, in an attempt to remind you that this is 3D. In 2D it's just confusing as to why… More
