Goofs

The so called Potuguese Man-of-war in the tank at Sayle's headquarters looks nothing like an actual Man-of-war. Men-of-war float on top of the water by way of a polyp filled with gas. The Man-of-war in the movie looked like a giant jellyfish. See more »

Alex Rider's one and only screen mission
8 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Alex Rider books have been very successful so therefore it is a shame that they couldn't have been converted into a franchise. All the signs are there in this film that the production company wanted it to be one but sadly box office takings meant that dream faded fast. As a stand alone film Stormbreaker is good but fans of the books will know there was so much more we could have seen in later films had they been made.

Spy Kids and Agent Cody Banks set the bar for young spy films very high and despite some big name British actors jumping to appear on screen this film was not a hit. Everyone tries hard but there obviously was something missing.
