Awakening to find himself broken and alone, he must learn to survive and navigate the harsh and unforgiving wilderness. Reluctantly taming a lone wolf abandoned by its pack, the pair learns to rely on each other and become unlikely allies, enduring countless dangers and overwhelming odds in order to find their way home before the deadly winter arrives.

I initially did not want to watch this movie, but I am so glad I did. Beautifully made film!

The movie was okay, if improbable. Basic a boy and his dog survive tale, with beautiful scenery at points. But keep in mind when the menu asks what language, it really means what language do you want the subtitles in, because the movie is in some made-up "ancient" language. Be prepared to sit and stare at the screen the whole time.

Alpha is amazing. Could this be 'how it was' long long ago? Wolves adopted human and increased our chances of survival. I like this movie.

Interesting to think about life/survival 20000 years ago. The possibility of man and dog's interaction then leading to dog's domestication, plus a stylishly made story makes a cool film. I liked it

Photography was well done, but it's a cheesy caveman movie.
The Disney style might be OK for kids. Very unrealistic.
Loved the shot of the white rubber lugged boot sole. ;-)

As an adult viewer, disappointed that the best scenes were not on location but with static CGI. However, the film's imagined story on how the wolves were domesticated eons ago is worth a look.

Note: Some animal scenes attracted PETA's boycott. Not sure how else to dramatize one of the film's point on hunting that "You take a life to give life to your tribe."
