Product Description

They grew up together in the suburbs of LA, living their own version of the American dream, with every day a blur of partying and looking for the next thrill. Johnny (Emile Hirsch, Lords of Dogtown) is the leader in their sordid world of drugs, greed, power and privilege. But when he is double-crossed by another dealer, things quickly begin to spiral out of control, and an impulsive kidnapping leads to a shocking conclusion. Justin Timberlake (Edison), Sharon Stone (Bobby) and Bruce Willis (Lucky Number Slevin) co-star in this powerful and controversial film.

Format: DVD
The first 40 minutes you wonder if they had a budget for lighting. The thing seems shot in houses that cannot afford their electricity bill.

The casting is bizarre with Emile Hirsch being the lead character and the weakest. I just found him and Justin Timberlake (I hope those tattoos are fake as you just come across as a total goof) completely unbelievable in their roles. I'm supposed to think Hirsch is a drug dealer supreme? The guy is just plain wimpy no matter how "tough" he tries to act. I'll also add the brother of the kidnapped kid was also not at all believable as a drug addict. He just came across as annoying every time he showed up onscreen and his shaved head just kept reminding me of the Great Gazoo from "The Flintstones."

The lucky thing is the story (paralleling the real life SoCal drug dealer Jesse James Hollywood) is riveting. I suppose the first 40 minutes are setup, but it seemed overly long before we got shots outside in the bright sunlight and the kidnap scenario revs things up. The actor that carries this movie really is Anton Yelchin (playing Butch, the kidnapped kid)

The onscreen titles marking off "Witness #1," "Witness #2," etc., actually goes nowhere. You don't need to even pay attention to that as the trials are never shown.

Gratuitous Bruce Willis, Sharon Stone (at her screaming best and with an added bonus years later fat suit on), Harry Dean Stanton and Alan (what?) Thicke.

A terrific, if flawed, movie.

Format: DVD
Many films have been made of this sort of nature. This is slightly the better ones that had a thought provoking story based on actual events leaving some of the acting to be questionable. This film is based on Jesse James Hollywood case in real life. The film takes place in the year 1999 and the director really captures it. The film feels very real. Jesse James Hollywood character kidnaps his friend's younger brother "Zack" because his older brother Jake Mazursky, played Ben Foster, owes money for drugs. Timberlake and the Jesse James H. character treat him with a good time with girls, beer, marijuana, and parties. "Zack is having a great time but Zacks parents are worried sick and Zacks older brother goes crazy trying to look for him to the point that he's about to pop a vain......seriously. At the same time Jesse James H. is so worried and does not know what to do.

The cast of this film seems to have been scientifically designed to appeal to the broadest possible audience. There are actors here that will bring in both those who prefer established Hollywood as well as young, pop stars with names familiar to the younger set. Some have roles that are little more than cameos but it is fun to try to pick them all out. Sharon Stone gives an uneven performance as Zach's worried mother. She's quite believable in a family dinner scene, then over the top and practically unrecognizable at the end of the film when trying to express the mother's feelings about the crime. Although Bruce Willis appears only briefly as Johnny's father, he convinces us of his enabling parental behavior. If I have to choose the only actors that stood out to me were Justin Timberlake, Bruce Willis, and Ben Foster who done a great job with his out bursting role.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By D. Landry on May 3 2007
Format: DVD
This movie could have been a 5 stars if the plot line would have been a little more consistent and would not have dragged for the first hour before it really got interesting. Although movies about drug dealers and/or pimps are not appealing to me, this one got my full attention towards the middle of the movie and sucked me right in, until the horrific ending. I thought the whole cast played their roles extremely well. Justin Timberlake was surprisingly good. Based on his performance here, he has all the right ingredients for a promising acting career.

This is an excellent film showing the extend of damage that can be caused by the misguided youngsters and how far they are willing to push their luck to achieve their own goals.

Definitely not recommended for the young crowd simply due to the language and sexual content, but a very good movie for mature people with an open mind.

Alpha Dog is an excellent movie. Great actors, such as Emile Hirsch and Anton Yelchin really bring it to life.
