Alex Rider: Operation StormbreakerClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie is fine for tweens overall (despite lots of violent material) and will appeal to kids who've read the popular book series it's based on. It's fairly tame when it comes to sex and language, but the violence is pretty intense for a PG-rated film. There are guns, shooting, and explosions throughout, as well as scenes of peril and action (involving airplanes, motorcycles, horses, cars, and boats). No blood is shown.
- Sexual Content
- Mild flirting between teens.
- Guns, shooting, fighting, and explosions throughout. A man with two guns (pointed into the camera) assassinates a character, although we don't see the impact. A character is killed for making a simple mistake. Many scenes of peril, including car and motorcycle chases, skydiving, and careening off buildings, although no blood is shown.
- A couple of "hecks."
- Social Behavior
- A main character depends on violence to solve problems. The MI6 people aren't exactly warm and cuddly, and they force Alex into service. A character is senselessly killed.
- Nintendo, BMW, Mini-Cooper, zit cream, a fountain pen that shoots sodium pentathol, reference to Hogwarts.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Some drinking among adult characters.
- Age appropriate
- Not an issue
- Depends on your kid and your family
- Not appropriate for kids of the age most likely to want to see it
