After the death of his uncle, the 14-year-old schoolboy Alex Rider is forced by the Special Operations Division of the UK's secret intelligence service, MI6, into a mission which will save millions of lives.
Life Force is a new British sci-fi thriller made for children's TV. It's set 25 years in the future when global warming has melted the polar ice caps, flooding the planet. Four children, Greg, Karen, Ashok and Mai Lai, have been left to fend for themselves. Because of their psychic powers they are pursued by Glemser, played by "Band of Brothers" star Damian Lewis. Although the series will undoubtably crop up on "Before they were famous" type shows in the future, Lewis does particularly well, adapting to the role of the bad guy in this low budget TV thriller. The wardrobe department should be thanked as the long black coat does a lot for him too! The series itself is much like the New Zealand/UK co-production "The Tribe". If had received better publicity when it was first shown it may have gained a similar cult status.
