Alpha and Omega Movie Review
Wolves are bound by tradition. And the Eastern and Western wolves are no exception. When the Eastern wolves face a shortage of caribou, they begin hunting in Western territory, breaking their pact. Now, in order to keep both packs from starving, they must unite. To do that, the new Alphas (children of the former pack leaders) must get married.
Alpha and Omega
A World Apart
Kate and Humphrey were childhood friends, who both harboured secret crushes on the other. But when it was Kate’s turn to train and become the new Alpha, their status made it impossible for them to date. By tradition Alpha’s cannot be with Omega’s. They can’t even howl together during the moonlight howl. As the new Alpha of the Western wolves, Kate must marry Garth, the new Alpha of the Eastern wolves, and unite the packs. Unfortunately, Garth is, well, not exactly Kate’s type.
A Trip to Idaho
One evening, two humans kidnap Kate and Humphrey and bring them to a new park in Idaho in order to repopulate the area. And the timing couldn’t be worse. If Kate doesn’t return home to Jasper Park in Canada, the two packs will have to fight for their territory. With the help of a golfing goose and his duck caddy (who offer an endless supply of comic relief), Kate and Humphrey try to find their way home. But will they return to Jasper in time to stop the battle?
The Bottom Line
Alpha and Omega features the voices of Justin Long, Hayden Panettiere and Christina Ricci. While some animated movies are made for all ages, this one had little to offer teens and adults. Fortunately, there were several laugh-out-loud moments that made up for the overall corniness.
