Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker

Suave, cool and sophisticated, this blonde adolescent gets pulled into the world of secret service activities after his uncle Ian (Ewan McGregor), whom Alex (Alex Pettyfer) didn't know was a spy, is killed while on a mission. It's a high-octane adventure with oodles of action violence that will play well to young adolescents... if their parents are okay with a few senseless killings. Get the movie review and more. »

Why Is Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker Rated PG?

This junior spy film contains more violence than most US PG-rated films. Gunplay is included throughout. In one instance a man is assassinated, and in another a man is killed for making a simple mistake. Along with hand-to-hand and foot-to-crotch combat, there are many moments of peril and a couple “made you jump” scenes. No blood is shown as a result of these situations. As well, there’s a big dangerous jellyfish we know will tangle with someone before the movie’s end. Language is limited to a couple uses of the word “heck.” No sexual content was noted.
