Stormbreaker
'Stormbreaker' is based on the teen novels by Anthony Horowitz about Alex Rider (Pettyfer) - a 14 year old baby Bond. It's every boy's dream: he's parentless, he's a secret agent, and Alicia Silverstone is his home-help.

Alex's uncle (McGregor), after teaching Alex secret service type skills, is killed in mysterious circumstances at the film's beginning. Alex is swiftly & forcibly recruited into Britain's MI6. After a gruelling training course, Alex is sent on his first mission - up against ruthless businessman Darius Sayle (Rourke).

Not helped by a wooden perf from (then 15-year-old) newcomer Alex Pettyfer as Rider...

To quote Derek Zoolander, he’s [Alex Pettyfer] “really, really, ridiculously good-looking”. The type — total babe magnet — that real teenage boys — moody, spotty — tend to consider a “git”. It’s hard to warm to such a hero. A shame, because Geoffrey Sax makes a good fist of the visuals, mustering plenty of bonkers sets, vehicular action and new-fangled gizmos...
