    Underwhelming in the style of most off-brand CG, Alpha and Omega is livened by pretty Rocky Mountain backdrops and leadened by stock characters and the wolves' weirdly prissy behavior.

    Has old-fashioned backgrounds that occasionally achieve a touch of grandeur, but that's about the best that can be said for it.

    Here is a pleasant, undemanding animated family comedy - decent enough, but it feels like a reshuffling of dozens of films you've seen before.

    Alpha and Omega is one of those rarities in the modern era of Hollywood animation: bad.

    Alpha and Omega, an unambitious 3-D animation about a couple of young wolves in love, isn't so much howlingly bad as it is howlingly boring.

    Unfortunately, none of these conflicts or predicaments is particularly compelling, and the unevenness of the visuals doesn't help.

    ... funny, sweet but occasionally befuddling ... it is all perfectly average, nicely animated, appealingly located entertainment ...

    An animated flick that doesn't leave much of an impression. It's even difficult to recall what happened once it's over because it's so slight and sluggish.

    Not without charm and bearing easy appeal to very young viewers.

    It's an ugly, laughless 3-D cartoon about wolves that is so wussified and stupidified that it'll bore kids and make their adult minders wish they'd done something comparatively interesting, like cleaning the gutters in the rain.

    As with any movie, this kids' film is only as good as its writing -- the jokes, the cute bits, the heart. And that's where Alpha and Omega comes up short.

    After preliminary special-effects high jinks -- wolves bobsledding a hollow log down a twisty mountain run -- Alpha and Omega kicks into An Important Life Lesson.

    Even with a terrific voice cast, this animated romantic adventure is hit-and-miss.

    The story comes off as patchwork, with a climax cribbed from The Lion King and odd musical sequences that seem inspired by …ahem, classic Mariah Carey. It's not quite the vision of love intended.

    The animation, coupled with a jarring use of 3D, makes for a visually unspectacular film that feels very similar to others that have come before it.

    The 8-12s will love it, but grown-ups may feel they've seen lots of it before (especially the caribou stampede, a shameless pinch from The Lion King.)

    Stumbles every time it attempts to rise above the perfunctory, with its tiresome comic-relief geese and bog-standard internecine rivalry in the wolf pack.

    There's nothing here that Disney hasn't done much better decades ago, and the script is a lame mixture of slapstick and sentiment.

    Aimed squarely at the very young, this cute animation still feels far too rushed to spend any significant time on.

    Though predictable and routine, Alpha and Omega will be enjoyed by youngsters under eight regardless of whether they see the 3D version.
