The book was amazing, I didn't get that sense with the movie. For one, there was no character development with Ender. The effects were amazing and the action was fun. But The movie was to fast paced and bland. I am very disappointed and am waiting for a remake (very impatiently).

Ender's Game----(DVD-2014) ---- 2-Stars ---- Ok, a Really slow show ---- Enjoy! ---- RichardPaul (Finished 7-20-2014

I wanted to watch this movie as everyone raved about it.
Now that I finally got after a long wait, I can't understand why there was such a long waiting list.
I didn't find it to be what everyone sait it would be. I actually agree with many of the critics giving it a bad review.

I enjoyed the book series as a teenager, so I was excited to see the movie come out. The movie was well done. The young Ender is a remarkably captivating actor. Moral issues around rights and reponsibilites are strikingly conveyed.
