Product Description:

Based on the New York Times bestsellers by Anthony Horowitz, ALEX RIDER: OPERATION STORMBREAKER brings the young adult adventure series to the big screen. Like an adolescent James Bond, Alex Rider (Alex Pettyfer) has been trained since birth for a career as a spy. The only problem is, he doesn't know it. It's not until his beloved uncle Ian Rider (Ewan McGregor) dies that Alex learns of his intended purpose in life. At just 14, Alex is not sure he can do all that is required of a super spy, but without much choice he is taken under the wing of Britain's secret intelligence service. Calling itself M16, the Special Operations Division sends Alex on a mission which could save or cost millions their lives. As Alex embarks on his greatest challenge yet, he learns all is not what it seems, with the lines blurring between his obvious enemies and those who are supposedly on his side. But equipped with super spy training, Alex is prepared to deal with whatever comes his way, whether it's in the form of deadly computer technology or in Stormbreaker creator Darrius Sayle (Mickey Rourke).

Packed with charming performances by actors including Ewan McGregor, Stephen Fry, Mickey Rourke, Bill Nighy, and Alicia Silverstone, ALEX RIDER delivers something for kids and adults alike. Containing just enough sinister elements, the playful film brings the book series to life with nonstop action, a clever storyline, and teenage-oriented spy tools like a powerful acid in the form of zit cream.
