Great movie, worthy adaptation
20 May 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This film is action-packed and humorous from the beginning, with great one-liners and perfect facial expressions.

As far as acting goes, Bill Nighy is perfectly cast as Alan Blunt, Alex Pettyfer is right for Alex Rider, and Stephen Fry is hilarious as Smithers (he should have had a bigger role though). Andy Serkis has just the right face for Mr Grin, and Mickey Rourke is an interesting choice for Herod (now Darrius) Sayle.

Unlike what the naysayers think, this movie is well worth seeing, and was adapted for the screen by the original novel author Anthony Horowitz. I feel it is a worthy adaptation of the book, and hope they make more of the Alex Rider films.
