The battle scenes are spectacular but lifeless and hard to engage with. We're watching a cascade of computer-game imagery.

It was a bit like standing in a room where someone is playing a video game on a screen and you're not actually taking part in it but you have to watch interminably this game being played and it's just really a bit boring.

I thought this was a pretty witless affair.

An engaging and exciting sci-fi flick to bring out the 12-year-old in all of us.

Although it's far from perfect and it's in need of a few tune-ups, Ender's Game does lay the groundwork for what could be a satisfying saga.

Newcomers will likely be left wondering what all the fuss was about in the first place.

From its grave, Full-of-Portent-and-Moment start 'til its grave, Full-of-Portent-and-Moment end, this flick's got a severe case of the Messiah Complex. Lots of human-phobia here--it's 100-percent gravitas and humourless inhumanity.

A commendable sc-fi drama, this serious film offers up some great themes and some grand visuals.

Visualmente desinteressante, moralmente confuso, povoado por personagens aborrecidos e entediante na maior parte do tempo.

The film's own dilemma might be best expressed by Ender, who challenges Graff, "What are you going to do? Waste millions on a loser?" It's a dilemma Ender's Game can't resolve.

Enough people attended Ender's Game last weekend to place it at the top of the box office. But could any of them have known how profoundly unspectacular an experience they were in for?

A lot of Ender's Game plays like Starship Troopers: The Early Years.

Asa Butterfield stars opposite a grumblebum Harrison Ford in an expensive, elaborately mounted, tedious film with one huge problem - it has no second act. You literally get to the end of the film and think: "Hang on. That's it?"

Full of mixed messages and strange symbolism, its weirdness is also its (limited) charm ... Trippy, confusing, strangely slow and contained, it certainly exists in its own bonkers world, and, as such, is, at least, an odd original.

This efficient adaptation proves extremely watchable, and still packs an emotional punch.
December 4, 2013
It's been a strong year for science fiction... And now Ender's Game comes along to make that resurgence look like the real thing.

Ender's Game certainly looks and feels serviceable, but lacks the sting to emerge as a serious contender in a crowded market.

A biting morality tale with themes of power, manipulation, child soldiers and genocide. Hood's superb screenplay quickly sets up the premise and immediately involves us ... is a powerful, disturbing and thrilling experience. Unforgettable

The conclusion does pack a shock-and-awe punch that elevates and validates all that builds up before it--almost.

The outcome of that game will give audiences plenty of material for moral debates in the weeks to come, and maybe a sequel down the road.
