Earth has barley survived a war with an Alien insectoid race thanks to the bravery of one man, Mazer Rackham. Picking up 50 years on, in a more futuristic future where the united human military force have progressed further into space combat, they are now preparing for one final battle to decide the future of mankind. Through the training of potential young candidates they hope to find another hero to lead them to victory.

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-

Today I am reviewing a film called Enders Game. I knew I just had to watch it after I had read and reviewed the book, seeing as I loved every minute of reading. It was a bit nerve-wrecking to watch because I wanted to film to do the book justice in so many ways. Unfortunately, I don't think the movie quite did that for me.

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.

An earlier reviewer mentioned that the story had been watered down, sadly
that is very often the case, it all comes down to economics, reaching a wider
audience brings in more 'dollars'
However...
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
quality superb.
Worth a spin.
