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. »

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Does your perception of media violence change when you see a murder in a movie targeted at kids versus one made for adults? Was it necessary for these elements to be included in this movie? How could the writers have “written off” Alex’s uncle without having him shot?
