Enders Game ok

Delayed seeing this because we didn't think we would enjoy it. Actually found it interesting, and walked away with "good prevails" even with a tough story line. Reminds me of "bullied revenge" but Ender had a good core. I would recommend it. Acting was fair...nothing outstanding.

Ender's Game

I found the movie pretty good for adults but more acclimated for the 9 to 16 yr olds. Reminded of attending movies with my kids when they were younger. The Computer graphics are excellent and the story was just an easy , fun movie to go see. Some of the writing I feel was elementary in nature..It was like seeing that older movie Space Camp with the added Technology we have now. it kept my interest but I wouldn't say it was the best movie I every saw.

Terrible if you've read the book!

Too much from the book was cut or outright didn't happen. The entire b-story wasn't even mentioned. The most irritating thing for me was the casting of Bonso; terrible. That or Ender shouldn't have been Asa because he's too tall. In any event, Bonso was a tiny trollish looking guy. Not at all refined as per the book.

Good (not great) adaptation of WONDERFUL book

The Enders Game books (including Part 2 Speaker of the Dead) are among the best books I've ever read. I was more than excited when this movie was announced, but a bit apprehensive that the books would be adequately translated to the screen. This adapatation is better than I had feared, but not as good as say, Lord of the Rings. Novels this meaty do need a significant time investment, and unfortunately the movie wasn't long enough for the detailed characterization, which is where the novel excels. What's great about the movie? The games themselves are very well done technically, with the "formation" sequence particularly nice. Ender is very well portrayed by the young actor. What's good about the movie? Ender's inner turmoil is understood, and his interaction with authority and leadership skills are well portrayed. What's not so good? Ender's familial relationships are too brief to be understood -- not enough exposition, and Peter and Valentine are too minor.

This ridiculous movie reveals the pathetic ideology of The Politically Correct. It is vacuous and way off in left field. Despite a few neat special effects, this foolish & silly movie has absolutely nothing going for it. Avoid it at all costs.
