Goofs

The "Zit" cream that is given to Alex Rider allegedly will burn through any metal, but is harmless to a person's skin. When trapped in the aquarium with the giant Man of War jellyfish he uses the cream against the metal supports of the aquarium. This is impossible, as salt water aquariums can have no metal in them, as metal can drastically change the PH balance of the aquarium, and kill any creature in it. See more »

Bright and breezy, but too predictable in terms of story
4 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Stormbreaker was a decent film; this is an opinion coming from someone who has little knowledge of the books. It isn't as innovative as Spy Kids, but it is decent. The special effects and the action are above average, the performances from Mickey Rourke, Ewan McGregor and Bill Nighy are great and Alex Petyfer is an appealing enough lead, the soundtrack is nice and the film goes along at a fast pace. However the storyline is very predictable and sometimes ludicrous, the script is a bit weak in places, I found Alicia Silverstone surprisingly irritating here and the cameos from Stephen Fry and Robbie Coltrane are too brief to allow them to shine properly.

Still, it is a fun and mildly enjoyable flick. 6/10 Bethany Cox
