Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

I just now finished watching a British movie, ALEX RIDER: OPERATION STORMBREAKER, made in 2006, in high definition, on my cable television's digital video recording chip, which I had earlier recorded from the Home Box Office channel.

At first, I was a little reluctant to watch this show, for in my experience, far too often, English movies will have a cast speaking with British accents that are nearly impossible for an American to understand.

However, all of the dialogue in this movie could be easily understood.

At the beginning of this movie, when they're showing aerial views of London, I recognized the Royal Hospital Chelsea, which is the British counterpart to our own Armed Forces Retirement Home, where I presently reside!

The Armed Forces Retirement Home and the Royal Hospital Chelsea have an exchange program, in which, every other year, a few selected representatives from each Home travel overseas to visit the other Home for a week.

Kind of neat, huh?

Anyway, this is a good, clean, wholesome movie, which is perfectly safe for little children, and other living things.

It's all about a fourteen year old boy who unexpectedly and reluctantly becomes a secret agent for MI6, the British intelligence service, investigating a massive conspiracy which utilizes newly developed personal computers.

There is nonstop action, with continuous edge of your seat suspense, perfect entertainment for the whole family.

There is no nudity, sex, or profanity.

Well, how do you like that?

Fun movies CAN be made without the sleaze, after all!

Hollywood, pay attention!

During the chase scenes, I did sort of wonder where they found so much wide open space in a country as crowded as England?

So, gather 'round the young'uns, pile up on the big comfy couch, and order a pizza, for it's family night!

Pass the popcorn, please.

Thank you.
