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.

Asa Butterfield is a fine actor, but utterly fails to convince as the lead here. Maybe it's just the part of a child becoming a high ranking leader in the proceedings, that just didn't work for me. His main expression throughout the film, seemed to only be one of a rabbit caught in the headlights.
Harrison Ford fares better, as Colonel Graff (or should that be gruff?), and seems to treat things as a warm up to his return as Han Solo.
Ben Kingsley, sports a hilarious Maroi facial tattoo, and an even more comical Kiwi accent. A total throwaway.
Very cg heavy, some impressive, some not so much.
The ending (kinda) saved the third act for me. I didn't see it coming, and things are left open for a sequel (it's the first adaptation of a best selling trilogy). It likely won't happen due to lacklustre box office though.
The picture quality was outstanding, despite the film's shortcomings.
The Audio quality surprises by not being particularly bass heavy. It features a fair bit of aerial combat, which just isn't as immersive as it should be.
So... as a film it's okay, as an adaptation of the book, it's awful.
I will explain in more depth below.
The film cast an ender that is 13 but ender is 7. Because of this they dropped all references to the age gap between him and his classmates, by the end of the film he is suppose to be 5-7 years younger than his peers. He is taller than kids that are suppose to be nearly double his age in the film.
Ender is a cold killer, I do not know why they wrote this out of the film. Peter is a murderer, they wrote that out of the film and turned him into the bad kid from toy story. Enders concern about his own kills make no sense out of context.
When Ender is taking a Hiatus, the film fails to explain why, they don't even mention that he's at mazer rackmans house or that he built the raft to avoid prying eyes, the scene makes no sense whatsoever as a result.
Ender is suppose to be really horrible to his team but he cuddles them.Read more ›

My 10 year old saw the trailer and thought it looked good. 4 star rating on box doesn't do it justice. Brilliant film which kept my easily distracted son engrossed. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Deborah
