My Review of ‘Alpha’

For months I continued to see the incredible trailer for Alpha in the movie theaters and it intrigued me but I didn’t go see it because I figured the movie wasn’t worth the $10 movie ticket. Sure enough, it wasn’t.

Yesterday, my family and I watched the film and I was far from impressed. The story was very basic and predictable. The cinematography was overly beautiful, meaning the film was trying too hard to be epic. The music was too simple. And the movie didn’t land the emotional moments even though it was desperately trying to make people cry.

The best part about Alpha is the relationship between the main protagonist, Keda, and his new best friend, the wolf he named Alpha. As someone who loves man’s best friend, this was a heartwarming element to the film. Other than that, the movie was so boring it literally put me to sleep.

I’m giving this movie 81 out of 100 and 2.5 out of 5 stars. It’s not a terrible movie but unfortunately, I was very underwhelmed.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

She punched the wall beside her, her chrome armored glove forcing a tiny dent in the wall.

No. She would not fail. The Resistance would know defeat. And she would be victorious.

The Phantom Menace is a fun film filled with adventure. It’s also one of the few Star Wars movies to have a mother as part of the story which is, of course, Shmi. Her encouragement for Anakin is heartwarming and clearly, on Mother’s Day, one of the highlights of the film.

2. Attack of the Clones
