STORMBREAKER





CyanEyed
Hey,

the movie stormbreaker is being released in uk cinemas today (and im on my way to watch it in a bit). its based on the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz. This is the series list in order:

Stormbreaker
Point Blanc
Skeleton Key
Eagle Strike
Scorpia
Ark Angel


From what ive seen in the trailers and read on http://www.alexrider.com/News/The-Storm-is-about-to-Break they changed a lot from the book.

I'll point out the changes i can remember off by heart.

The Slogan
Original: Alex Rider - Your're Never Too Young To Die
New: The Storm Is About To Break

The Arch-Nemesis
Original: Herod Sayle
New: Darrius Sayle

Alex's Physical Characteristics
Original: Alex Rider Is Brown Haired
New: Alex Pettyfer (The Actor Who Plays Alex Rider) Is Blond.

Addition Of Sabina Pleasure

Original: Sabina Pleasure Did Not Make An Appearance In Stormbreaker.
New: "Where's Alex?" Cried Sabina

<<<<----------------Spoiler Warning------------------->>>>

THIS SPOILER MAY HAVE TO BE HIGHLIGHTED TO BE READ


When Alex Rider Foils Herod's Plot At The Museum (in the book) he had an automatic gun. In the movie, he has a submachine gun!!!!


<<<<-----------------End Of Spoiler-------------------->>>>

Is It Just Me Or Does It Ruin The Movie If They Change It From The Book That Its Based On???

The movie still looks good but i would prefer if they stuck to the book.

I don't really mind when a movie isn't exactly the same as the book, unless it makes the movie bad. From the trailers I've seen, Stormbreaker looks to be a great movie, and I may even read the books as apparently they are good.
