As a long time fan of Orson Scott Card I have to say that, as another reviewer wrote, it is very hard to translate the book Ender's game into a two hour movie. However, I have to say that the finished product is as close to what it should have been as it could be. True there are some scenes we would have loved to see, such as an in depth look at the way Battle School and the Armies were described in the book. It gives so much more detail about why they train the way they do.
One of the most important features we lose is the in depth look into the thougth processes of the characters, giving us the ability to delve deep into their psyche and see just what it is that motivates them.
The special effects are superbly done and the acting is spot on with what we have come to expect from some of these actors, although Ben Kingsley comes across as a bit unbelievable in his role as Mazor Rackum (I know I've probably spelled that wrong). All in all I would give this a solid 3, even though I am tempted to give it a 4 because I was so enthusiastic when I heard it was coming out.
