Two mismatched wolves embark on a cross-country quest to get back home and restore peace in their pack after being relocated thousands of miles away by well-meaning park rangers. Quick-witted Humphrey (voice of Justin Long) likes to frolic with friends and play video games with squirrels; disciplined Kate (voice of Hayden Panettiere) likes to call the shots and hunt caribou. Normally, an omega wolf like Humphrey would never stand a chance with an alpha wolf like Kate, but when they're both transported halfway across the country they must work together to get back to their natural habitat.… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Randy Cordova, Arizona Republic
"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."
‑ Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Times
"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."
‑ James Luxford, The National
"There's nothing here that Disney hasn't done much better decades ago, and the script is a lame mixture of slapstick and sentiment."
‑ Christopher Tookey, Daily Mail [UK]
"A poorly written and disappointingly animated adventure that may keep the wee'uns happy for a while but will leave the adults snoozing."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"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."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Has old-fashioned backgrounds that occasionally achieve a touch of grandeur, but that's about the best that can be said for it."
‑ Mike Hale, New York Times
"full review at Movies for the Masses"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"Here is a pleasant, undemanding animated family comedy - decent enough, but it feels like a reshuffling of dozens of films you've seen before."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Though predictable and routine, Alpha and Omega will be enjoyed by youngsters under eight regardless of whether they see the 3D version."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Post
"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."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"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."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"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.)"
‑ John Walsh, Independent
"Stumbles every time it attempts to rise above the perfunctory, with its tiresome comic-relief geese and bog-standard internecine rivalry in the wolf pack."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Radio Times
"It certainly gives the nippers their slapstick fix. Sadly, the only sense of wonder it will stir in their parents is when it will all end."
‑ Elliott Noble, Sky Movies
