"Ender’s Game excels from the page of Orson Scott Card’s original sci-fi classic novel, into an on-screen simulation run by director and screenplay writer, Gaven Hood. For a film that has taken 20 years to adapt, there is no denying that the expectations for the action adventure movie exceed the distance between earth and the moon. Ender’s Game is not simply a film adaption, but a visionary experience for the endless possibilities that the future holds for space. The question is whether or not an all-star cast can make the almighty leap across gravity to impress the audience."
