Movie Review: "Alpha"

Saw the movie "Alpha," today. Takes place 20,000 years ago in Europe. Entertaining and intense flick about a teenage boy who must survive alone in the wilderness after he's left for dead during his first hunt with his tribe. My favorite quote was from this young man's mother: "He leads with his heart, not with his spear." A lot of themes play out in this film: coming of age, enemies becoming friends, earning your father's pride, being stronger than you think, man vs nature, etc. There was too much CGI for my liking, but I did enjoy how the movie showed the evolution of how the wolf would eventually become man's best friend. After the show, I went home and loved on my five-year old Chocolate Labrador.
