UK / USA 2006, 93 minutes
Dir. Geoffrey Sax
Genres: Family / Adventure, Spy


Aroview: A British-oriented spin on the kid super-agent premise, with gadgets and evil masterminds galore, based on the popular Alex Rider series of adventure novels.

After his hotshot, super-spy uncle (McGregor) is killed, Rider (Pettyfer) is brought under the wing of MI6 having been unknowingly trained his whole life for a career as an agent. His mission is to infiltrate the compound of an egotistical billionaire (Rourke), who plans to launch a computer system designed to murder millions of schoolchildren across the UK!

Adapted to film by author Horowitz himself, this is action from start to finish, with particular emphasis on martial arts sequences presented with a glossy sheen.
