I have seen this three times and it's a quality movie with meaning. It was a bit disturbing for me to see a larger kid beat up a smaller kid. The acting by veteran actors was subdued but great, at times over-the-top but solid. The ending is a tearjerker and Ender brings a lot of young emotion to his part. I am sure if our world today suffered the same decisions and destruction from other beings...we may act the same. Makes you think. I never read the books but plan to.

They really just absolutely ruined the story. The acting is subpar and the whole development of the characters is rushed. So much of the nuance that made the book so great is lost here. Just a really bad version of the story.

What a great movie! Very well done, they need to make the rest of them and if you haven't already, do yourself a favor and read the books, you won't be disappointed.
