Very good movie well acted emile and justin played good parts in the movie so did ben foster i just feel bad for Nick Markowitz (the real person kidnapped) we just wanted to be cool its a life lesson that we cant trust everyone no matter how cool we want to be if u remember that justin in the movie asked him to run many times but the kid just wanted to be cool and hang out

Don't be fooled by the presence of some pretty-boy actors: Alpha Dog is a gritty, gut-wrenching and disturbing film. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Alpha Dog isn't a happy movie, but it's dramatically solid and the impressions it leaves will not be easily shaken. Full Review
Justin Chang
Writer-director Nick Cassavetes' sprawling dramatization recklessly blurs the line between reconstruction and reality in ways that are admittedly interesting, if more than a little artistically suspect. Full Review
Kevin Crust
Los Angeles Times
In a film with several over-the-top characters bordering on camp, Timberlake's Frankie is the only one who approaches three dimensions, adept at convincingly dishing out some of the movie's disturbing violence as well as registering subtle shifts in Frankie's allegiance. Full Review
Lisa Schwarzbaum
Entertainment Weekly
Cassavetes throws in everything he can recycle to grab a core-demo viewer -- slutty teens making out, blaring rock music, guns, split screens. Full Review
