All children are different, right?
The Alex Rider age rating is mostly set because of the violence. From the very first episode, there are scenes of violence involving the lead character. These scenes continue throughout the series.
There is also some adult language. The use of the word s**t is common throughout. However, the F-bomb and the C-word aren’t used.
There is some partying, especially early on. We have to remember that the lead characters are in their final years of school, making them between 16 and 18. This is often the age they like to push boundaries.
Alex Rider is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
