Synopsis: An epic adventure set in the last Ice Age, ALPHA tells a fascinating, visually stunning story that shines a light on the origins of man’s best friend. While on his first hunt with his tribe’s most elite group, a young man is injured and must learn to survive alone in the wilderness. Reluctantly taming a lone wolf abandoned by its pack, the pair learn to rely on each other and become unlikely allies, enduring countless dangers and overwhelming odds in order to find their way home before winter arrives.

This movie was a moving story about how a young tribesman found himself on a journey he never expected. It was his learning to trust by making friends with a wounded wolf that helped shape his amazing yet harrowing adventure fighting the extreme elements during the Ice Age. The bonds he formed with this lone wolf were very heartfelt. Even 20,000 years ago, man and animals were destined to become friends. Some content may be too intense for young children, but I loved the adventure and the beautiful outcome. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to take the journey Keda did even with a great animal like Alpha. Just saying! I watched this movie at the Santikos Silverado located at 11505 W Loop 1604 N, San Antonio, TX.
