Goofs

The Portuguese Man o' War does not kill by electric shock as shown with the little fish. It's tentacles are filled with thousands of nematocysts that contain a venom, consisting of mostly proteins, that causes a stinging pain lasting about an hour in humans. The real danger is that the venom is highly allergenic and causes allergic shocks in a large number of subjects. 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.
