Goofs

The scene where Alex is riding through London is a never ending geographical muddle. They are seen first riding along Rotten Row, then in the opposite direction across Hyde Park Corner, then in the blink of an eye they are at the Royal Exchange, some 3 miles east. See more »

Very good to the books
25 July 2006 | by missy_arsenalSee all my reviews

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!
