After the death of his uncle, the 14-year-old schoolboy Alex Rider is forced by the Special OperationsDivision of Britain's secret intelligence service, MI6, for a mission which will save millions of lives.
Alex Rider thinks he is a normal school boy, until his uncle is killed. He discovers that his uncle was actually spy on a mission, when he was killed. Alex is recruited by Alan Blunt to continue the mission. He is sent to Cornwall to investigate a new computer system, which Darrius Sayle has created. He plans to give the new computer systems to every school in the country, but Mr. Blunt has other ideas and Alex must find out what it is. Written by
The building opposite Alex and Sabina's school is actually the Channel 4 headquarters. See more »
In the scene as Mrs Jones is leading Alex to Mr Blunt's office for the first time, Mrs Jones has a three inch tear visible in the back seam of the upper right arm of her jacket showing her white shirt underneath. This has then disappeared in the next scene where Alex is talking to Mr Blunt. See more »
Alex Rider (Alex Pettyfer) is a regular teenager with a regular uncle. However when his uncle is killed, he finds that his uncle was actually a British super spy. He reluctantly joins MI6 in the footstep of his uncle. Wealthy Darrius Sayle (Mickey Rourke) proposes to donate super computers called Stormbreaker to the schools, but MI6 suspects foul play.
This is definitely some sort of James Bond jr. It just does it so badly. Alex Pettyfer is a pretty boy for the screaming girldom. However he is little more than that. And he joins so reluctantly that it grates. Alicia Silverstone is misused here as a nanny. It may be better if she was actually the mom. Mickey Rourke is playing the villain with glee. He's a cartoon, but considering the kiddie fare, it may be a good thing. All of it is rather too silly to watch.
