Metacritic Score

  • 50

    The New York Times Nathan Lee

    Mr. Pettyfer is no Sean Connery, no Roger Moore, no Pierce Brosnan, no Timothy Dalton and no George Lazenby even, but the director, Geoffrey Sax, compensates for his zero of a hero...

    Los Angeles Times

    The film is forever trying to balance between being for younger teenagers and keeping their parents occupied as well, and never quite gets it right.

    Variety Derek Elley

    A shake 'n' bake Brit teen-spy actioner, without a smidgeon of originality, humor or involving characterization, Stormbreaker is a high-profile bust.
