Ender’s Game

Ender’s Game, 2013 film starring Harrison FordAsa Butterfield and Hailee Steinfeld.  Pretty true to the book by Orson Scott Card.

An alien race called the Formic’s seem determined to destroy all humans.  Ender Wiggin (Butterfield), a super smart boy is sent to battle school in orbit where he is taught to be a killer of the aliens.  He learns to be the best to fight back and help save humanity.

This was a very visually compelling film, the cgi effects were outstanding and there were so many.  It was an enjoyable movie with some pretty good twists.  It is the kind of movie you need to sit and watch without someone talking or asking questions, you might miss something.  An in theater viewing would probably be best as the battle scenes can be quite thrilling.  The acting was ok, Ford of course was excellent.  It’s a far fetched tale but that is what entertainment is all about, take us away from reality for a few hours.  I will watch it again as I’m sure I missed a few things.
