A.V. Club
"[I]t's often gorgeous, using what looks like a blend of natural splendor and judicious computer-generated tweaks to produce a landscape that looks genuinely otherworldly."
Jesse Hassenger (15 Aug 2018, )
Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "It’s a very linear story, a simple journey home adventure, cleanly directed by Hughes and beautifully shot by Martin Gschlacht."
Olly Richards (24 Aug 2018, )
Hollywood Reporter
"Enjoyably old-fashioned in its narrative but crisply modern in technique, it is engaging..."
John DeFore (15 Aug 2018, )
New York Times
"[Mr. Hughes] is a sharp and engaged visual storyteller. It’s a pleasure to see him working in expansive wide-screen, a fitting format for his chops."
Glenn Kenny (16 Aug 2018, )
RogerEbert.com
3 stars out of 4 -- "The best feature of ALPHA is its imagery, which is absolutely stunning....Hughes, his cinematographer Martin Gschlacht and the visual effects team create a world that is as beautiful as it is dangerous, often framing the characters in the center of a vast, almost endless landscape."
Odie Henderson (17 Aug 2018, )
Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is a story about learning and earning leadership, about respecting the world around you, about surviving not just on wits and grit but by working in tandem with others."
David Fear (15 Aug 2018, )
Variety
"[A] spectacular prehistoric eye-candy survival yarn....It’s the tale of a young hunter stranded in the wilderness, who proves his manhood and becomes best friends with a wolf, and it’s like a Disney adventure fueled by a higher octane of visual dazzle..."
Owen Glieberman (14 Aug 2018, )
Washington Post
"The film’s plusses include jaw-dropping cinematography of lunar-looking landscapes, filmed in rural Canada and Iceland....Smit-McPhee is also quite affecting..."
