Ender's Game,Was a bit of a disappointment, I thought it was going to better than it was. A kids movie.
I was really enjoying the movie until when I knew there was only about 30 minutes left, I began wondering where this thing is going. I was soon to find out and found the ending to be less than satisfactory... Read more. But overall, I found it a great watch, despite a lack of any real conclusion.
I enjoyed the movie. It was done very well and the hints at the true nature of man just this side of subtle but handled so well you barely noticed. Have to say though I don't think I would like to... Read more live in a wrold were children are preessured so hard to be grown up before they should be.
Awesome movie for the whole family. A must for all
story is good until the Pakeha Maori with the South African Australian accent appears, no idea what has gotten into Ben Kingsley, but I suppose he should not try to speak with a Kiwi accent if he can't that really ruined the movie for me.
Hungergames in Sci-Fi young Asa Butterfield as W. Ender (apt name in more ways than 1) is utterly compelling as are his co-stars Abigail as Petra and yes you heard me, Harrison Ford. This movie took... Read more me on an incredible in-bound and out-bound journey - easily 5 stars.
I liked it, although at 60, I'm hardly the target audience. The special effects are amazing, although the storyline was a bit hard to follow at times. I got this movie because I am a fan of Harrison... Read more Ford. Not his best, but ok for a rainy afternoon.
I have not read the book, but feel that the film would be perfect for pre/ and young teens. (shades of harry potter)!
I met Orson Scott Card in Scorpio Books in Christchurch at a book signing. He told me that Ender's Game was going to be made into a film, that was 25 years ago.
It has been a long time coming... Read more but the film doesn't disappoint. It's brilliantly well done. Great acting, great special effects, great portrayal of the complex characters; this film has it all. Well worth a watch.
The book was so good that it was a movie that I couldn't wait to see, especially with seasoned actors as Ford and Kingsley. Unfortunately it was not convincing. The lead, Asa Butterfield was weak and puny.
