Stormbreaker (Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker)
Alex Rider is a 14-year-old orphan who has been unwittingly trained all his life by his uncle with the skills to become a secret agent -- scuba diving, mountaineering, martial arts and so on.

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
