ENDER’S GAME (Theatrical Release USA 2013)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì

Ender’s Game
puts the teenage actor in the commander’s seat and serves up an entertainment piece that adults will enjoy. Asa Butterfield does a great job interpreting his character. He shows his talent as he assumes the command of his own army. WOW! Moises Arias also performs at a high level of ability. The movie is surprisingly good. This movie has a star-studded cast that includes: Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Ben Kingsley, and Viola Davis. The movie serves as a good teen/adult share.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This futuristic movie becomes an interesting study about the very young man who is recruited into the military life, how they may act, and how they progress. Because of the science fiction aspect of the movie, it is more than worth its watch.
