I may not have read the book, I really enjoyed this movie. You really got to know his struggle and understand his view of his life in being who he was and what he had to go through to surpass expectations. Love to see again.

I thought the movie was excellent on all lelves. The special effects are absolutely awesome. Way better than I expected. NBOw these are space ships. (liek I haev never seen). Well acted, thoughtful indeed and you see a lot more of Harrison Ford in this than I thought. And wait until you see the... gun... Talk about "Lock, Stock and Two Smoken Barrels" (The name of another film long ago) ... wait until you see these .

Ender's Game is one of those books so rich in detail and sub-plots that it would be hard for me be satisfied with a screen adaption of it.

In an apparent attempt to meet some standard Hollywood formula, the producers rushed the story to the point where even people who haven't read the book felt it sucked the life out of the characters. Ender's Game is a character play with a cool future/space plot line, not a space adventure/action flick. The latter is how the producers chose to spin the story. The story would have been far better served by extending the movie another 30 minutes to capture the emotional ride... this is a story that can easily hold audience attention for 2:30, instead of the 1:54 it was given. Wasted opportunity to put a new Sci Fi landmark on screen.

A refreshingly intelligent break from the typical science fiction action thriller. Captures the heart of the book including the emotional and personal struggle due to war. I left entertained but also very touched. Will return to see it again!
