Ender’s Game is a movie I went into wanting to love. I first read the book back in High School, and it has been high on the list of books I recommend to others ever since. It’s a book with engaging characters, poignant social commentary, and well-thought out tactical action. It’s written for adults, uses gritty violence to powerful effect, and pulls you in like only the best books can. So I walked into the theater with high hopes and deep fears. Thankfully, the movie mostly succeeds, and though it wasn’t everything I had hoped for, I enjoyed Ender’s Game thoroughly.
