Stormbreaker (Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker)
An outwardly ordinary teenager finds himself suddenly thrust into extraordinary circumstances upon discovering that his entire youth was part of an elaborate plan to create the perfect super spy in director Geoffrey Sax's action-packed adaptation of author Anthony Horowitz's best-selling series of novels featuring an adolescent secret agent.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Nobody wants to see a violent James Bond send-up, with a British teen risking life and limb for Jolly Olde England, matched against a toothpick chomping 'computer genius' villain played by Mickey Rourke."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Bond-for-kids done with some obvious budget restrictions..."
‑ Keith Phipps, AV Club
"Teen spy hero makes leap from book to screen."
‑ Jane Boursaw, Common Sense Media
"Jamais parece reconhecer a pouca idade de seu herói, que age como adulto (e como espião experiente) na maior parte do tempo, o que, além de tornar tudo implausível, ainda resulta num filme aborrecidamente convencional."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"An entertaining popcorn movie featuring a veritable who's who of game British actors (and a trio of equally game American performers) who keep the proceedings lively even with a too-predictable plot."
‑ Mack Bates, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"I forgot most of it about 20 seconds after it was over."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"A pointless junior version of James Bond minus the budget (and the suaveness)."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"What doesn't quite work are the more overtly jokey bits."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"An instantly forgettable confection that'll bore more kids than it entertains."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"click to read full review in Greek"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"Yes, we've got brand new blond junior and grown-up Bonds this season, but the toughest task for Baby Bond could be finding an audience."
‑ Nancy Churnin, Dallas Morning News
"With so much talent involved with this film, the finished product seems like a waste."
‑ Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"A moderately enjoyable affair which only drags in the middle."
‑ Richard James Havis, Film Journal International
"This mishmash retread fails to find its own identity on any level and should head straight to cable TV where it belongs."
‑ Pete Hammond, Maxim
"It's not much of a plot and TV veteran director Geoffrey Sax struggles with the big-screen demands of action scenes."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
