Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker is Agent Cody Banks played British and kinda straight — that is, as straight as you can when your villain, who dispatches foes with a giant jellyfish, is played by a toothpick-chomping Mickey Rourke in purple eye shadow. Alex (Alex Pettyfer) is the trilingual 14-year-old MI6 recruit who thwarts him on a rote mission that isn’t even goosed by its peculiar cavalcade of guest stars — including Alicia Silverstone as a nanny named Jack.
