Having not read any of the books, I approached this entirely at face value.The feel of it is very much James Bond from the Roger Moore era – a relatively light hearted spy romp. Add in the training aspect, and the fact that a youngster is the main character, and you have an entertaining action thriller for family audiences.It may not match the books, and if that's important to you going in then it's going to disappoint you. But the main cast is all fine, with Mickey Rourke's comedy helpers making it clear the level on which the film is to be approached.Alex Pettyfer does satisfactorily as Alex, but doesn't set the screen on fire (not that there are many juvenile leads who do). On the whole, this is entertaining but forgettable.
A movie about a 14 year old kid who undertakes a mission for MI-6 because his uncle turns KIA should tell you everything about this movie. Especially if its not centered around the comedy genre.The gadgets used by the kid are lame and so are the bad guys. The MI-6 would have done a better job running Starbucks and lets just not get started on the SAS. The Mickey Rourke that we saw in Ironman has a role that is little more darker than Mojo Jojo. Nice job by Alex Pettyfer but the lack of depth in the story and its predictability doesn't do much to complement his abilities to act. Bill Nighy does well with his expressions and I liked him the most in this movie.If you are a fan of Spy Kids then you would probably like this too. So unless you have run out of choices or are in need of some mindless action with a vague storyline I would not recommend this movie. Definitely not on a Saturday night.4/10
Well this film is no James Bond i have to say,but it is however a OK spy film. The Plot was fairly good and the characters were not too bad either but Alex Rider,the actor who played him couldn't really act that well. The Producers were just looking for a hot blond with a 6 pack so teenage girls could drool all over his poster. The Action sequences weren't that bad and Ashley Walters was good in it. The Villain was OK but he wasn't that intimidating. Neither was the Girl Villain.That fight scene between her and Alica Silverstone could have been better without that cheesy music.In Conclusion StormBreaker could have been a lot better but i guess they can't change it now. I am unsure about a Sequel.It is maybe not the best idea to do one.
