Alpha and Omega (Empire review)

AlphaOmegaSquareFifteen years after Toy Story, computer animation arguably reaches its omega with this derivative tale of two wolves kept apart by their pack’s rigid class system. Long is a likeable presence (he has previously voiced Alvin the chipmunk), but he and the rest of the cast are at the mercy of low-grade animation, helpfully blurred for its faux-3D incarnation, and a hopeless script – the poster tagline (‘Pack man’, with a picture of a wolf) is emblematic of the weakness of the writing. Very young children may forgive the flaws and enjoy the adventure, but frankly they’d be better off renting Balto. A howling disappointment.
