Storyline

When Alex Rider learns that his uncle Ian has been killed in the line of duty as a British spy - and not in a car accident like he's been told - everything changes for this otherwise normal teen. He is approached by Alan Blunt, head of a shadowy offshoot of MI6 known as The Department, who reveals that Alex has been unknowingly trained since childhood for the dangerous world of espionage. Pressured to help investigate his uncle's death - and how it connects to the assassination of two high-profile billionaires - Alex reluctantly assumes a new identity and goes undercover in a remote boarding school called Point Blanc. Isolated far above the snowline in the French Alps, Point Blanc claims to set the troubled teenage children of the ultra-rich back onto the right track. But as he digs deeper, Alex discovers that the students are in fact the subjects of a disturbing plan by the mysterious Doctor Greif - a plan which he will have to risk his life to stop.

Wow.. did not expected I will get so hooked
4 June 2020 | by klarry-98949See all my reviews

I haven't read the books and I think this helps me to enjoy the show much better.. I have nothing to compare it with and I have zero expectations.

It is midnight in UK right now, as I'm writing this review. I'm on episode 4, I really want to go to bathroom, to get something to drink, but am totally glued to the screen. I decided to pause and write this review to express my excitement. Honestly, I don't remember when was the last time a TV show made me feel like that.. Stranger Things season 1 perhaps..

And before you start throwing stones at me, No, I am not comparing Alex Rider to Stranger Things, these are two completely different entities.

All I am saying is that I am hooked.. I am loving it! I genuinely envy people who manage to consume series after series, to binge them. Unlike them I am like that crazy picky eater with tons of allergies. It takes me ages to find something I can digest and enjoy. Tonight I found that and this makes me a very happy person this evening..

STORY

If you read the books, you know 100% more about the story than I do.

If you haven't read the books.. Good! Keep it that way, definitely there are more chances that you will enjoy this. You can always read the books later.

Personally I find the story is captivating and intriguing, the pace is excellent keeps your attention, the action is great.

CHARACTERS

Great casting. Otto Farrant, the one who plays Alex Rider is excellent. His convincing as innocent teenager and as a badass undercover spy! Loving him!

Overall not a single miscast in my opinion. All great performances so far. Well done to all the actors and to whoever done the casting on this.

PRODUCTION One word.. "Great!" (based on first 4 episodes)

Great soundtrack, camera work, action, cinematography. Again.. well done to all involved!

So My SUMMARY to Whoever is reading this!

Please do not get discouraged by low ratings of some people. I encourage you to -**Please give it a try!** It may not be your 'cup of tea' which is fair, but if it is, I just wish that you will enjoy this series as much as I am enjoying it right now!

Stay Safe and Take Care Reader!
