Come along on the ultimate road-trip adventure that will leave the whole family howling with laughter! When Kate, a take-charge “Alpha” wolf, and Humphrey, a laid-back “Omega” wolf, get snatched by park rangers and relocated halfway across the country, the two must set off on an incredible journey home! With the help of a goofy golfing goose and his quacky duck caddy, Kate and Humphrey won’t let anything stop them – prickly porcupines, grumpy bears, even a speeding locomotive – from getting back to Jasper Park in time to help save their pack from rival wolves! And along the way, Kate and Humphrey learn that even though they are complete opposites, they make a pretty good team! It’s a thousand miles of fun in this wildly entertaining journey the whole pack can enjoy together!
Love is blind to the rules of tradition, opposites attract, and both clichés apply quite nicely to the wolves in Alpha and Omega. In the wolf world, the pack values the omega wolves' skill of defusing tense situations with humor just as much as they value the keen leadership skills of the alpha wolves, but tradition dictates that alpha wolves don't mate with omega wolves. So, when the all-business alpha wolf Kate (Hayden Panettiere) and the fun-seeking omega wolf Humphrey (Justin Long) find themselves attracted to one another, the pair resign themselves to a life apart, and Kate agrees to a match with alpha male Garth (Chris Carmack) from a rival pack in order to peacefully merge the two packs into one. But when Humphrey and Kate are tranquilized in their home in Jasper National Forest, Canada, and relocated to Sawtooth Forest far away in Idaho, the two discover that not only can opposites work very well together, but that neither of them can continue to ignore their attraction for the other. The question is, will working together, combined with a little help from a golf-playing goose and his duck caddy, be enough to get the pair all the way back to Jasper National Park before the rival wolf packs tear one another apart at the next full moon? And what will become of their relationship if they do return in time? This animated 3-D film is amusing and entertaining, if not particularly outstanding. A lot of the humor is pretty corny and the plot has been done many times before (think Open Season 2), but the characters are likable, the action is pretty good, and who can resist chuckling at images like a retired, golf-playing French-Canadian goose or the distractive powers of a good cupcake?

There are a few things to keep in mind while viewing. The biggest complaint most people have is the poor quality of animation. While it's not as detailed as anything Pixar has made, it still has a charm to it. Apparently, this film was animated by a studio in Mumbai, which gives a bit of a hint as to why the animation is a little rough around the edges. The story may be predictable, but the good voice acting and dynamic characters make it more worth your time. There are some pretty big names stars in here, most notably Dennis Hopper. Hopper unfortunately passed away before the films release, making it his last.
The humor is kind of hit or miss for me, mostly because of the several low-brow jokes spread throughout, yet the amount in this still doesn't hold a candle to films like Ice Age (which was unwatchable.). Speaking of Blue Sky Productions, this film sort of reminded me of their movie Rio, which had a similar story. After viewing both, I'd say Alpha & Omega is better, plus it came first. This film also seems reminiscent of The Lion King in a way, (the idea of a pack oriented animal learning their responsibilty.).
I also must address how many people complain that this movie is "inappropriate for children". There are some violence themed sentences that are semi shocking, but I was a little more surprised with the amount of sexual humor. Chances are, younger children don't know what any of it means, so I wouldn't worry about it. The biggest compliment I can give this movie is how much of a cuteness overload it is. Whether or not you like the story, I guarantee people of any age or taste in film will find the character design irresistibly adorable.
This film is not for critics, but more for people who are able to cherish their childhood. As I write this review, I am 19, and I can see myself in later years continuing to enjoy this movie.
Archetypes normally arent a problem, but nothing interesting or original is done with them.
