Big-budget sci-fi starring Asa Butterfield and Ben Kingsley. When an alien race known as the Formics attack Earth, the International Fleet prepare for their next attack by recruiting the most intelligent children on Earth and training them to lead the inevitable battle. Split up from his family and taken to the Fleet's Battle School, Ender Wiggin (Butterfield) quickly makes a name for himself as the best recruit of his generation with abilities even surpassing those of the legendary war hero Mazer Rackham (Kingsley). As his reputation grows and Ender continues to impress his peers, he is expected to be Earth's only hope against the alien race. But with the Formics preparing for their next move, will Ender finish his training in time to lead his people to victory as anticipated?
From the Back Cover
In the near future, a hostile alien race have attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander, Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the future leader. Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy, but strategically brilliant boy is pulled out of his school to join the elite. Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult war games, distinguishing himself and winning respect amongst his peers. Ender is soon ordained by Graff as the military's next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, he's trained by Mazer Rackham, himself, to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race.

Ender's Game follows one such candidate, Ender Wiggin's (Asa Butterfield -Hugo) whose siblings failed the program due to his brothers extreme violence & sisters indecision flaws, yet, Ender has a perfect balance of both of their personalities. Ender goes through training with other candidates of various ages in a Hunger Games style battle of the fittest, including a Sci-Fi quidditch with laser pistols & classroom rocket science lessons. Ender himself is an extremely smart loner type with a tactical brilliance, always questioning authority. His abilities & leadership draw others to him naturally, and he uses they're strengths to fill the gaps in his own weaknesses.
There isn't a lot of attention grabbing action throughout if that is what your expecting from this movie, it has it's moments with the training dome & heated arguments occasionally getting physical for the first hour. But it's certainly more about focusing on Ender, with little depth to the other characters, as he tries to overcome bullying & the added mental pressure asserted by a desperate Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford- ...Read more ›
The movie follows Ender, a teenager who is a genius. He’s as smart as an adult, but he is not the only child like this. There is a whole school of them who get sent to Battle school in space to become possible commanders. These commanders are necessary to fight a space-war against the aliens, called Buggers, who have previously fought a war with the humans and so far are being held back. But now they need a boy to step forwards and win this war once and for all… hence Ender.
What I think was the greatest disappointment in the movie was the ending. They were building up to it the whole way through but the great big plot twist didn't feel very... effectively done in the movie itself? It was interesting for the sake of watching it and if I didn't know what was going to happen maybe it would have hit me harder. But generally speaking, I was a bit disappointed.
I will say that I was very impressed with the effects. There is a lot of technology mentioned in the book and the graphics did such a good job with making them look advanced. Especially the Battle Room where they have war training. It fell right into place with how I imagined it would be in the books.
I think Asa Butterfield did a great job of acting as Ender Wiggin. I’ll admit I wasn’t so sure at the beginning of the movie, but then after we encountered any scenes including Bonzo I think he really fit the part. I think the scenes with Bonzo and Ender had to be some of my favourites.Read more ›
that is very often the case, it all comes down to economics, reaching a wider
audience brings in more 'dollars'
Fifty years has past since an alien force was forced to withdraw from it's invasion
of earth, this was thanks to the apparent sacrifice of one man.
Based on the assumption that the aliens will return 'earth' has been preparing
for the possibility, however finding a candidate to lead has proved difficult.
'Colonel Graff' (Harrison Ford) recruits young intelligent trainee's because it
is believed that their reactions are quicker and lack fear.
They will be trained by using simulators to gauge their ability to make decisions,
training proves a tough leveler for the young recruits, however, one, is showing
real potential, 'Ender Wiggin' he appears to have many attributes for the task
ahead, he is promoted, now leading his own team.
The team progress to advanced schooling, they will learn that games are not
always as they seem.
This an absorbing watch, perhaps a little like watching a hi-tech video game
with deadly consequences.
Terrific special effects throughout, superb visual enjoyment, picture and sound
Worth a spin.
