Ender's Game Reviews
This film surprised me.
For some reason, I don't know why, I thought that this film would not be very good. Maybe I was thinking that, because the lead character is very young, this film must be just for children.
I was wrong.
The film is very, very, good. The casting is excellent and superb. This is a top notch production.
The story is excellent. (I have not read the book.) The film makers manage to make some science fiction concepts seem extremely believable.
There are only two things that I didn't really like (and these are meant to be very minor criticisms): (1) I didn't really like the ending and I didn't really understand initially the lead character's reaction to what he had done (I didn't really understand his reaction at first; then it came to me later that in order to defeat an opponent you have to understand your opponent so well that you actually start to empathize with your opponent -this is what they say in the movie); (2) I like Sir Ben Kingsley as an actor but I didn't like him in this role; -personally, I would have cast a talented (largely) unknown actor in this role.
I would rate this movie at 7.5 out of 10.
(P.S. I don't know if the esoteric left-leaning views came from the book or the screenwriters, but there in there.)
I guess I'll just enjoy them for the depth of information they provide, and let others follow at their own pace!
