Alpha Movie 2018 Details and review

Alpha movie 2018 is a survival adventure film
Epic adventure set in the last Ice Age, ALPHA tells a fascinating, visually remarkable story that shines a light on the origins of man's best friend. While on his first hunt with his tribe's most best group, a young man is injured and must learn to survive alone in the jungle. Reluctantly train 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.

About 20,000 years ago in Europe, young Cro-Magnon Keda (Kodi Smit-McPhee) goes on his first epic hunt with his chieftain father (Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson). After a terrible trouble forces the hunting party to leave the boy for dead, Keda must undertake the long, treacherous journey home alone. Along the way, he and then forms an alliance with -- a wolf he names Alpha. Keda and Alpha must control the elements, and other predators, to survive.

This is a good adventure yarn with memorable visuals and an original premise and feel. Alpha presents a credible take on the origins of the human-canine bond -- but more importantly, it's an absorbing survival tale with an appealing main character and a wolf that everyone will root for. Albert Hughes, directing without his brother Allen for the first time, uses extensive CGI to create a prehistoric setting that's simultaneously familiar and unfamiliar, primal and fantastic. And McPhee is a remarkably sympathetic actor. As Keda and his courage, drive are entirely believable. Perhaps more important, so is his empathy -- you sees how this particular Cro-Magnon teen might have mercy on a wounded predator, then be receptive to allying with it. His performance is simple and grounded. You completely buy him speaking the film's originate language and enduring all the trials he faces with his wolf friend.
That said, authenticity isn't the key here. It is  not a documentary; it's a boy and his dog death survival adventure, and it's plenty involving on that score. Jóhannesson, as the father, is also quite good. So are all the other humans, really. But Alpha is completely all about Keda and Alpha. Dog lovers is all over this movie, and as long as younger viewers can handle the intensity of the danger, families will enjoy it too.
