absolutely brilliant
21 July 2006 | by winsax1-1See all my reviews

This was absolutely brilliant! I went to see it having read the book, and seeing as the screenplay was by Anthony Horowitz, I didn't think it could go far wrong-and it didn't. High octane, funny and good quality, there was a real sense of class to the movie-making. I had seen Alex Pettyfer on Tom Brown's Schooldays, and again he was excellent. Just missing one or two minor details, but on the whole a really well made film. And the featuring of big names in small parts worked excellently. Ewan McGregor, Stephen Fry, Bill Nighy, all subtle, and so effective. Well Done. Fantastic...can't wait for the last one now! It's a film suitable for all ages and the film is better than the book in some respects, because, even though I had read the book and I knew what was happening,the film-making made it such that it was still unpredictable, and amazing!! This is not a typical book-to-film adaptation as I expected, it really gives another dimension to the Alex Rider story. I wonder who will play the next Alex Rider now??
