Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 25 December 2021
I put it 4 star as I am a big fan of the books but this season didn't give it justice, it left out huge chunks of the story which makes me feel like there wasn't as much funding this time round for season 2.

I grew up reading the books at school and loved it, took me to a whole new world where I could imagine myself as Alex Rider as we were the same age at the time!
Although I liked the story I felt this season didn't hit the way the first season did, everything felt cheap and rushed, not much character developement.. i felt disengaged like there was no passion behind the making of it. And so i want this to do well! An example of this was (SPOILERS) one of the main parts of the book didn't make it into the season where Alex gets thrown into a real version of the game. Even when Alex did the run through of the game it was meant to be him as the character going through the aztec world not just some holograms to shoot at round the room so that was cheaped out on, in fact not much of the book was in the season at all, just the bare fragments of the story.

If somehow anyone who produced it reads this then please don't feel the need to bring it up to date, the books are special, bring back the gadgets, bring back the details of the story especially for Season 3 which will be on the Scorpia book! If any of you are fans you know how important Scorpia is to the whole book series! Whatever funding you need just take your time and do it in the right way I beg because the detail in the next book I feel is crucial to the development of Alex so it needs all the things that happen in the book to happen on screen and what we find out about Scorpia too.

Please do Scorpia justice.
