Ender’s Game is the film adaptation of a military science fiction novel of the same name, written by Orson Scott Card. It’s about an army of child soldiers being trained to fight a war against an alien race called Formics. The story follows Andrew “Ender” Wiggins, a 6-year-old boy who is enrolled into Earth’s Battle School, after a show of strategic planning that is beyond his years. They have aged up the characters in the movie and I’m not sure how that will impact the story telling. The casting is spot on with: Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Viola Davis and Ben Kingsley.
There has been some controversy over the support of the movie and the personal views of Card. That has not diminished the interest in the movie, by general movie goers and fans of the book.
