Recruited by Mr. Blunt and Mrs. Jones, and armed with special gadgets, he embarks on his first mission. Billionaire Darrius Sayle is donating a free Stormbreaker mega-computer to every school in Britain. But is there more to his generosity than meets the eye? Going undercover, he infiltrates Sayle's compound. He meets the tycoon's sinister sidekicks, vixen publicist Nadia Vole and the disfigured mute Mr. Grin, and tests out the impressive and secretive Stormbreaker computer. While exploring a restricted area, Alex begins to figure out the mysterious Stormbreakers--he knows he's onto something big. Suddenly, Sayle and his evil henchmen capture Alex. Using his cunning and his MI6 gadgets, Alex manages to escape. He hitches a ride to London to stop Sayle from activating the Stormbreakers and releasing their secret weapon throughout Britain. But time is running out. With the help of his housekeeper Jack Starbright and his friend Sabina Pleasure, Alex takes Sayle head-on in a dangerous race against time to stop the evil plan. Within days he's gone from schoolboy to super spy, but will his first assignment be his last?

- Fifteen-year-old 'Alex Pettyfer' (qv) was chosen from five hundred other boys for the coveted lead role of Alex Rider.

- As the lead character of Alex Rider engages in mountain climbing, scuba diving, martial arts and many other extreme sports, the role is said to be one of the most physically demanding ever undertaken by a child actor.

- 'Anthony Horowitz' (qv), author of the book, recommended 'Alex Pettyfer' (qv) to play Alex Rider after seeing his impressive performance in the lead role in the British TV drama _Tom Brown's Schooldays (2005) (TV)_ (qv).

- 'Jimmy Carr (II)' (qv) worked two days.

- Because 'Alex Pettyfer' (qv) was only 15 at the time, he was not allowed to drive the car in the car chase mentioned in the book, so it was instead converted to a horse chase so as the chase could still take place.

- BBC News 24 presenter 'Simon McCoy' (qv) has a cameo as the newsreader in the film announcing the Stormbreaker computer.

- The early edition of the script was published into a book.

- The building opposite Alex and Sabina's school is actually the Channel 4 headquarters.

- The school scenes were filmed at The Grey Coat Hospital school in Westminster,
