Based on Anthony Horowitz’s young adult spy novel series, Alex Rider follows the London teenager as he is recruited by MI6 to infiltrate a controversial corrective academy for wayward offspring.
Lol. I was thinking to myself, wow, an action series starring a straight, white male…and blonde to boot. How the heck did that happen from wacko Hollywood these days?

Race and gender-bending have proven to be roundly rejected and they don’t have the creative minerals to create compelling original minority characters, which leaves us entering an age of tokenism the likes of which the world has never seen.
All that said this one looks strictly for the kiddies, not original or interesting enough for me to commit any time on.
Alex Rider starring Otto Farrant is apparently coming soon.
