Alpha And Omega back to reviews
Comments
One of the worst movies I've ever seen.
Before I start, I would like to warn you I discuss some spoilerific stuff, except it's not really so spoilerific because it's obvious from the get go what happens.

OK wolves are my favorite animals and animated movies are my favorite kind of movies, but Alpha and Omega has to be one of the worse movies I've ever seen. The characters are ugly (except for Lilly and Humphrey) and poorly developed. They look like the kind of trash you'd find on Deviantart.

The film is absolutely packed full of stupidity. Here is just a few examples:

They meet golfing geese. Geese. How stupid is that?

There are vegetarian wolves, which add nothing to the film other then making the other wolves look like monsters, because apparently in this universe they don't have to eat meat to survive and thereby terrorize sapient prey animals. They just choose to.

The howling and dancing scenes have to not only the worst in the movie, but some of the worst scenes of all time. I can't think of a singe scene from another movie that was worse. They were just painful and embarrassing to watch. They take one of natures most awesome, eerie and beautiful sounds and turn it into some kind of silly song equivalent of a first kiss for the wolves. The wolves stand on their back legs and dance around like humans and move with too much flexibility throughout the whole film. It just looks cartoonish, in a bad way.

Now on for the "spoliers":

Kate's "death" was in no way touching or sad. It was obvious from the start she was just going to get back up. If they had the balls to actually kill her off or make her marry Garth I would have had something positive to say about the movie, because it would have been not cliché, and interesting, but alias, I do not.

End "spoliers"

The movie was cliché, atrocious, inaccurate, silly and stupid. The only thing it's good for is entertaining the kiddies.

As a person who has never seen this movie:

You say 'golfing geese' as if it's automatically a bad thing.

^ + 1. Non-points like that do nothing but encourage studios to stick with tired animal archetypes instead of something less frequently used and more original. With good writing, ANY animal or creature can be a good, well-fitting character. Another review here says that they were really annoying, which I understand, but bashing the specie itself does nothing.
