In the 2006 action-adventure spy film "Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker," a teenage boy named Alex Rider, played by Alex Pettyfer, is recruited by the British government to become a spy after the death of his uncle, who was also a spy. The film is based on the first novel in Anthony Horowitz's popular Alex Rider series. After being trained by MI6 agent, Mrs. Jones played by Sophie Okonedo, Alex is sent to investigate a tech billionaire, Darrius Sayle, played by Mickey Rourke, who has a sinister plan to unleash a biological weapon on the world.

Alex goes undercover at Sayle's headquarters, where he meets Sayle's personal assistant, Nadia, played by Sarah Bolger, who helps him uncover Sayle's true intentions. Along the way, Alex also discovers that Sayle has created a series of deadly Stormbreaker computers which he plans to give to every school in Britain.

The cast delivers solid performances, especially Alex Pettyfer, who embodies the character of Alex Rider with his charm, wit, and physicality. Mickey Rourke is also memorable as the villainous Sayle, and Sophie Okonedo shines as the tough MI6 agent.

The film also features impressive special effects, including CGI animation for the stormbreaker computers, and practical effects for the car chases and explosions. The cinematography is also noteworthy, particularly in the stunning shots of the film's London locations.
