A hostile alien race attacked Earth, and if not for the legendary heroics of Fleet Commander Mazer Rackham, all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, Colonel Hyrum Graff is training only the best young children. Ender Wiggin, a shy, but brilliant boy, is soon ordained by Graff as the military's next great hope. Once at Command School, he's trained by Mazer Rackham, himself, to lead them into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race.

Enders Game: train small children to fight big ants

Great special effects and an ingenious plot can't disguise the fact that this is essentially "Harry Potter" for sociopaths.

If I hadn't read the book, this would be a fantastic movie, however, I did read the book, and its too different for it to be a favorite.

Maybe if I didn't love the book, I would have liked this movie, but I DO love the book, and the movie is just wrong. I think that the biggest fault of the movie is that Ender is just too old all the way through it. He's supposed to start as a 5-year-old and age to about 12. In the movie he looks like he's a teenager the entire time, which just changes the entire tone.

I think I watched this movie about five times. I liked watching Ender's Game. My favorite part is when Ender Wiggin plays the Mind Game where the little mouse crawls into the behemuth's eye. Another great scene is when Petra shows Ender how to improve this shooting skills. The part I did not like is when Ender accidentally kills Bonzo in the shower facilities.
I am wondering if there will be a sequel to the movie. In the end of Ender's Game, Ender finds a Formic queen and he promises to find her a new home. Ender feels guilty because he destroyed an entire species of Formics along with their home planet. I think this movie deserved an Academy Award nomination at least.

Director Gavin Hood's commentary of "Ender's Game" is quite instructive in the political psychology of war and peace - as applied to personal growth, leadership development through the trials of maturation of a young man - as well as to society, the training of youth for a nations' warriors, international law, Drone Warfare, dehumanization and pre-emptive war, genocide and war crimes. Questions and dilemmas presented in a very entertaining fashion - if you like action-packed movies - as well as in an exceptionally thought-provoking manner. Ender Wiggin, a genius, is born and virtually placed to work out strategies of achievement in a violent environment, while he also works with opposing sibling influences of humility, diplomacy, wisdom, compassion, and empathy, as well as the extreme aggression of an impetuous fighter.
Other mental-emotional engagements: authority/approval issues, adult manipulation of youth "for the good of all," ego's part in a youth's proving to adults; psychology of the capacity to kill.
"When I understand my enemy well enough to defeat him, then in that moment, I also love him" ... "the way we win matters" ~A.E.Wiggin
Enjoy the great movie if you haven't already, then go for the Director's Commentary, (in Bonus Section of course) to get the instructive element. Use of set development and special effects are outstanding in the war-games and computer games rooms as well as in the battles in outer space.
The movie, based on the book by Orson Scott Card, is more than sufficiently acted by all, *intelligently* done. From Wikipedia: Ender's Game: Inside the World of an Epic Adventure is a reference book published by Insight Editions. With a foreword by Ender's Game film director, Gavin Hood, the book is broken into four parts: Ender's World, Battle School, Inside Zero-G, and Parallel Worlds.
That's the review I gave it at the web page, "Poly-Psy & Citizen Health; Problems & Solutions for Discussion; Empathy, Apathy, Healing & Recovering Democracy at the Crossroads." Suggestion: think *Teaching points.*

Colonel Graff: You have a habit of upsetting your commander.

Ender Wiggin: I find it hard to respect someone just because they outrank me, sir.

Colonel Graff: Tell me why you kept on kicking him. You had already won.
Ender Wiggin: Knocking him down won the first fight. I wanted to win all the next ones, too. So they'd leave me alone.
Colonel Graff: We won! That's all that matters.
Ender Wiggin: No. The *way* we win matters.
