Movie Review: Stormbreaker

My Rating: 1Star

This evening I went to see the movie “Stormbreaker” at UA Time Square, Causeway Bay.

I can’t believe I picked another bomb. That’s two in a row. I really should stick to My Must See Movies list.

This movie is a Mission Impossible / James Bond / Inspector Gadget want to be. Unfortunately, they did not do well imitating either. The dialogues in the movie were horrible but then they were not total faults of the screenwriters.

They had Ewan McGregor as one of the leading actors in the movie, but his role is more like a cameo, after being killed off almost 15 minutes into the movie.

Mickey Rourke was the main villian of the movie, who barely saved the movie, but he’s an outgoing actor that is hanging by the thread.

They also had Alicia Silverstone to play the pretty girl in the movie, but Silverstone was her typical self as she had always been in movies like Miss Match and Clueless, basically a clueless pretty dogooder.

I had an impression that most people went to see the movie because of Alex Pettyfer, but I did not think he was that good looking. Pettyfer was playing a teenager, which he is at 16 of age in real life, but he has this deep voice making him appear to want to play an adult.

At the end of the movie, they even left an impression that there will be sequels. I gasped at the idea but know that they would not be able to cheat me out of the price of a ticket again.
