Young super spy Alex Rider (newcomer Pettyfer) battles villainous billionaire Darrius (Rourke). The dark Bond-esque series of books which inspired the film have a healthy, anti-Harry Potter vibe, which gets lost in translation. There's some redemption in the form of callous MI5 boss Nighy and a Q-style cameo from Stephen Fry and there are a few passable action sequences, too.
