Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Alpha Dog is no travesty, but I would trade 95 percent accuracy for, say, 25 percent insight.
Fresh: As uneven as the film is, those with strong stomachs will find it worth sticking with.
Rotten: Who would have thought that a real-life tale of sex, drugs and murder could be so instantly forgettable?
Fresh: Irresponsible, uncommercial but surprisingly watchable.
it plays like a symphony
im no JT fan but he plays an excellent role in this movie.the all around acting is outstanding as well as the plot.this is a rare breed of film that both entertains you and makes you think, without boring you at all.
This is a great unique film with an excellent cast. Emile Hirsch delivers a fantastic performance accompanied by the breakthrough performance of Justin Timberlake. As always, Bruce Willis executes a subtle brilliant role.
this is a sick movie!
