The film had an elaborate star cast, but it failed to impress the audience and critics. But, the film is believed to be based on a true story. Alpha Dog has reportedly been inspired by the murder of Nick Markowitz.
Many films across the world have been inspired by true stories. Many of these stories sometimes get credits while some do not even get a simple mention, but one story that has troubled several movie buffs over the years is the story of the film Alpha Dog.
According to a media portal’s report, the movie is based on the murder of Nick Markowitz. In the movie, Johnny Truelove is a low-life who supplies drugs to his friends and others are indebted to him. So to get money from his friend Jake, he kidnaps his younger brother Zack, but as police gets involved in this kidnapping, Johnny ends up killing Zack.
