After the death of his uncle, the 14-year-old schoolboy Alex Rider is forced by the Special Operations Division of the UK's secret intelligence service, MI6, into a mission which will save millions of lives.
In his homeland of Alagaesia, a farm boy happens upon a dragon's egg -- a discovery that leads him on a predestined journey where he realizes he's the one person who can defend his home against an evil king.
Set in an era where superheroes are commonly known and accepted, young William Stronghold, the son of the Commander and Jetstream, tries to find a balance between being a normal teenager and an extraordinary being.
With all-new gadgets, high-flying action, exciting chases and a wisecracking new handler, Derek (Anthony Anderson), Cody has to retrieve the device before the world's leaders fall under the evil control of a diabolical villain.
Alex Rider thinks he is a normal school boy, until his uncle is killed. He discovers that his uncle was actually then redirected up a mountain in his coffin for burial. Alex is recruited by Alan Blunt to continue the mission. He is sent to Cornwall to investigate a new computer system, which Darrius Sayle has created. He plans to give the new computer systems to every school in the country, but Mr. Blunt has other ideas and Alex must find out what it is.Written by
I thought it was an OK movie with a lot of potential. This movie could have been amazing: good storyline, great set/props, good martial arts choreography, and a few big name actors (Ewan McGregor and Alicia Silverstone). However, with the exception of Alex, I thought the main characters were played by the wrong people. For example, Mickey Rourke was the wrong person to play an ex-bullied guy who turned into a computer inventor. The other flaw I thought the movie had was the action: the fighting was choreographed well, but it wasn't realistic. It was a good movie regardless, but if it had a better cast I would have liked it more.
