Alex Rider thinks he is a normal school boy, until his uncle is killed. He discovers that his uncle was actually then redirected up a mountain in his coffin for burial. Alex is recruited by Alan Blunt to continue the mission. He is sent to Cornwall to investigate a new computer system, which Darrius Sayle has created. He plans to give the new computer systems to every school in the country, but Mr. Blunt has other ideas and Alex must find out what it is.Written by

You're not being serious.
Actually, it's not my habit to make jokes.
Well, you're making one now! I don't want to be a spy. In case you haven't noticed, I'm still at school.

Stormbreaker was an excellent film full of action, comedy and mystery. A lot of fans were worried that all the fuss over it was too much and that the film itself would be a let down, but it wasn't. There were a few differences in the film to the book, but that still made the film great as it did follow the book's story line but made watching the film even more exciting. The story line too isn't hard to follow so anyone can understand instead of asking questions every minute. The actors and actresses were very good and they acted their characters just as Athony Horowitz had described them in the books. Alex Pettyfer was a lot alike how I had pictured Alex Rider in the books and so was Alicia Silverstone, who was playing Jack Starbright. A very good film indeed!
