The Reviews for Alpha (2018) 1080p


Howling to Exquisite Visuals and Bonds of Friendship. Yet, This Is A Lone Worth In Terms of StoryReviewed byrgkarimVote: 7/10

A movie about dogs is always a mixed bag... hey wait a minute, did I start this review last week like this? Robbie K here and bringing you another analysis of the latest film to grace the silver screen. While not a full dog movie, tonight's feature goes back in time to explore the origins of how we got man's best friend. What looks part survival film and part pet movie, led me to wonder what was in store, in hopes it would be the next epic film to break the box office. What lies in store? Robbie K here to give you another writing of opinions as I review:

Movie: Alpha (2018)

Director: Albert HughesWriters: Daniele Sebastian Wiedenhaupt (screenplay by), Albert Hughes (story by) Stars: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Natassia Malthe, Leonor Varela

LIKES:

Quick Run Time: A movie about survival, especially with one human character, can be long and drawn out if not careful. Alpha keeps the film rolling, not taking too long of pauses as the journey transverses from one part of the frontier to the other. The entire span of the journey is just over 90 minutes and it does a nice job trying to cram everything into a nice concise package.

Impressive CGI: The movie is all about recreating the primal world of the wondering nomads, which involves a lot of imagination, design, and CGI to bring it to life. The movie gets props from me because they accomplished the recreation in a very detailed manner. First the environments and natural phenomena are dazzling, fun, and furious as the special effects combine to unleash the nightmares that disasters hold. Second the animals of the world are also nicely animated, from the rugged texture of the skin, to the fluid movement of their grazing, hunting, and fleeing. Sure, it hits moments where it crosses into the fake looking zone, but overall a nice display indeed.

Costumes: Tribal costumes require a lot of detail, coordination, and study to deliver the most accurate display of that part of history. Though I'm no historian, Alpha's tribesman have all the knick-knacks of the what a plains hunter would normally have that not only serves as a fashion statement, but holds the functionality that these ancient beings attempted to use. The lead's attire will get the most attention, but when combined as a tribe, each nuance of the costumes comes out a little more.

The Wolf: When the live animal is on screen, the wolf was the stealer of the scene. Cute eyes, the whimpering moans, and the wise gazes are certainly the opener for this pooch, but the action scenes that require training were impressive displays to say the least.

The Cinematography: Let's face it, the real selling pint though is the beautiful visuals of the film. Alpha's scenery is gorgeous to say the least, with vivid waterfalls, beautiful night skies, and desolate plains that harbor doom. Sunrise and sunsets are majestic as they promise the start and end of new days, and the colors are dazzling as they blend into a mosaic of fantastic sequences. Throw in the CGI and the world just gets more vivid, making for an impressive setting to become involved with.

DISLIKES:

Animal Torture: I know, times were tough back then and it was either be hunters or be dead. Still, I didn't like to see the suffering of animals in this film. Alpha does not go down the quick finishes, but tries to capture the full moment of a spear hunter taking steps to secure his life. Some of the more merciful finishes I appreciate, but those torturous moments are not something I want to see in dragged out details. So, animal activists with bleeding hearts beware, you are in for a treat that will hurt your aortic pumps at times.

Lackluster Dialogue: It's a good thing that the visuals are so stunning as they are the strongest components to telling their story. As for the dialogues, well... primal grunts and language with subtitles doesn't have the best ring. Accurate? Potentially, however Alpha's dialogue doesn't have the unique, movie magic quality that it probably needed. It's nice to have realism, but the conversations were almost pointless in the manner they presented this film in.

Limited characters: The main character and his four-legged friend are the stars of this show, but they try to introduce other characters in the first thirty minutes. It's nice to establish the family tree web of the group, but given the worthless dialogue and short screen time, it almost pointless to go into introductions of the characters if they were not going to use them more. The father in general has a few dream sequences, but they did not do much to expand on his thoughts after the big event... so not the best casting.

The Patchy Story: It's a story about getting back home, so there isn't much story components to expand upon. However, Alpha feels patchy to me as the shots blend together in a very rushed presentation. Things suddenly happen, there is little fluid buildup during transitions, and the predictable plot devices sort of fall into place too fast. I could see a lot of the places were cuts were made and while it led to faster pace, it would have been nice to see some more entertaining components to piece it together, but still not too bad.

THE VERDICT:

Alpha is good in regards to the beautiful visual spectacle that it is. The primal world is alive in all of the amazing details that the big studios can make, and the even better it is in a nice concise 90 minutes to get you out quick. Alpha's adorable wolf (whether CGI or real) steals the show and will be the factor you want to bet on compared to the lead. Yes, the story is not the most unique, and is quite predictable thanks to the trailers, but it's patchy, linear story will be easier to follow. No, there is some suspense into this movie at times, but overall it's a pretty lax adventure movie, with the exception of the mad props to having to survive in the wilds of the past. Worth a trip to the theater? For visuals yes, but movie overall I cannot recommend it. In addition, I do not recommend 3-D viewing, because there is little to warrant the headache inducing effects this movie has.

My scores are:

Adventure/Drama/Family: 6.5Movie Overall:: 6.0

A Rare Beauty and QualityReviewed byJamesHitchcockVote: 9/10

Caveman films have never really been my favourite genre. "One Million Years BC", aka "Raquel Welch in a fur bikini", and its sequels from the late sixties and early seventies were at best entertaining nonsense and at worst just nonsense. The more recent "10,000 BC" was entertaining nonsense for the modern generation. It is so long since I last watched either "Quest for Fire" or "Clan of the Cave Bear" that I will not say much about them, but my memory is that both were rather dull.

And now we have "Alpha". The story is set around 20,000 BC. This is the ice age, so nobody wears a bikini, fur or otherwise. Although the film was shot in Canada, the action is supposed to take place in Europe, for obvious reasons. In 20,000 BC there were no humans in Canada or anywhere in the New World. The main character is Keda, a young hunter. During a bison hunt, Keda is thrown over the edge of a cliff, and although his fall is broken by a narrow ledge, the rest of the hunting party give him up for dead, much to the grief of his parents, Tau and Rho. (Apart from Keda himself, most of the characters are named after letters of the Greek alphabet, which is odd given that that alphabet was not devised until some 19,000 years after the action takes place).

Keda, of course, is not dead. (There wouldn't be much of a film if he were). He manages to make his way down alive to the foot of the cliff, and after some more adventures is attacked by a pack of wolves. Now, although they are the wild ancestors of man's beloved best friend, the domestic dog, wolves have generally had a bad press in fiction and folklore- Red Riding Hood, the Three Little Pigs, Brer Rabbit's enemy Brer Wolf and all that. There have, however, been occasional exceptions, such as Kipling's "Jungle Book", and "Alpha" proves to be another. Keda manages to fight off the wolves, injuring one in the process. His initial impulse is to kill the injured wolf, but he takes pity on it and cares for its injury. The relationship between man and wolf becomes one of uneasy cooperation, eventually becoming friendship, and Keda names his new friend "Alpha". (As will later become clear, however, Alpha is not the alpha male of the pack). The rest of the film follows the adventures of Keda and Alpha as he attempts to return to his tribe.

This film shares one feature with the old "fur bikini" school, and indeed with "Quest for Fire", namely the use of a specially constructed language, but whereas the language used in the fur bikini movies was crude in the extreme, consisting of no more than around a dozen words endlessly repeated, the one used here sounds a lot more like a natural human tongue, and we have subtitles to allow us to understand what is being said.

Filming took place in the winter and spring of 2016, but for some reason the film's release was delayed several times until it was finally released in August 2018, more than two years later. All I can say, however, is that it was well worth waiting for. The story is simple yet moving, the acting unaffected but effective and the cinematography of the wild British Columbia landscapes against which it was shot is breathtaking. Taken singly, any one of these qualities would have made this a film well worth watching; taken together they add up to something of a rare beauty and quality. I had never heard of director Albert Hughes before, but on this evidence he seems to be someone to watch out for. 9/10

Not Exactly Jean Auel HereReviewed byleahwschVote: 6/10

And she did it much better in the Mammoth Hunters describing a girl and her wolf. The first part of the movie was particularly hard to believe. Any modern farm kid grows up understanding that if you want to eat a ham sandwich, you have to kill the pig. It just wasn't credible that an adolescent paleolithic hunter would shrink from the coup de grace. Unless this guy's name is really Ferdinand and he just wants to smell the flowers and frolic with the butterflies. As noted, and like the much superior Quest for Fire from the early 1980s, there is no/no English dialogue (although nobody believes the Western Hemisphere was populated 20,000 years ago, so Anthony Burgess' made-up Quest for Fire dialogue is more plausible.) Another much superior version is the first 20 minutes of 2001, circa 1967. Subtitles only so don't bring the kids unless you want them to pester you to death--which they'll do anyway cause this movie moves at a veeerrrry "stately" pace.

Dear wife got hooked by the previews, but this is no Clan of the Cave Bear, and this actor is no Darryl Hannah. This left me wondering how on earth this got financed, and I find it hard to believe its going to find an audience. Go read the first three volumes of Jean Auel's series. It goes rapidly downhill in the later volumes, but the parts of Valley of Horses covering the survival of an adolescent in the harsh Ice Age are vastly superior, and much more plausible than this since that particular adolescent actually seems to know what she's doing. Be warned.
