Movie Review: Ender's Game
I recently read and recommended the book Ender's Game because I wanted to know the story before I saw the movie. Sometimes, great books don't translate well to the big screen, but this isn't the case with Ender's Game. The special effects were outstanding, and the movie was well cast-Asa Butterfield was perfect as Ender Wiggin as was Harrison Ford as Colonel Hyrum Graff.
The book is somewhat complex, and I wondered how the movie would convey the book's nuances and subtleties. It wasn't an issue, and I thought all important concepts were communicated to the viewer. Though the movie strays a bit from the book, seeing it was still an enjoyable experience.
