“I’ll rip your eyes out AND SHOVE THEM DOWN YOUR THROAT!” Alpha & Omega 3D Review

This morning I met my brother, his wife and two youngest children and took them to see the comin soon Alpha and Omega movie in 3D.

Through the entire movie I felt like I was watching a close relative, maybeeeeee say, a half brother or a cousin to Happy Feet. Obviously and convienently enough, they are by the same studios as Happy Feet. Mind you, this isnt a bad thing -- Happy Feet was a great movie. But, was Alpha and Omega?

I give it a B+.

The similarities were definitely great. If you recall Happy Feet, its about an outcast chick that has no voice (he cant sing, remember?) Well, while the story with Alpha and Omega is about wolves, one wolf isn't able to howl like he should be able to.

Some parts of the movie seemed a little odd, made me sit there and go "holy shit. they just said that?" (see title). I had to then remember the audience of the film are young children who will only remember the dialog for about 5 seconds, but the visuals for a lifetime. You have to keep the parents interested, right?

The next similarity is the ever classic Lion King. At parts, I felt as if I was watching Simba run through a stampede.

As far as the graphics, they were fine. Nothing mind blowing, by any means. However, it was not a cheap production. THe 3D? I didnt notice much really, however, they had plenty of opportunity to utilize this with the golf, river splashes, birds flying, etc.

The voice work was done really well and matched seamlessly with the animations. Some of the main voices were Justin Long, Hayden Panettiere, Dennis Hopper, Danny Glover and Christina Ricci.

Anywho, movie was good. I do give it a strong B-, but if you are the type of parent that really wants to pamper the movies your children see, you should remember this is PG and some things the mother says are a little absurd (shes very protective). Aside from that, theres nothing I found that could be inappropriate.

Oh, some children were a little scared by all the growling of the wolves at certain fights.

RIP Dennis Hopper.
