| Visually stunning with great story to tell

Ender's Game is smart sci-fi movie. Little bit like Starship Trooopers or Blade Runner. Beneath a beautiful skin there is a strong social criticism story. You may notice it or you may watch the whole movie as a beautiful sci-fi story. You may see the story as a criticism against USA:s policy to defend itself with prevention strike against anyone if they think to be threatened. In the movie almost fascist like society has tame their youth to make prevention strike without any criticism. They defend strikes justification for their youth just because enemy will strike if they don't strike first. Young Ender's dares to rise against authority and mistrusts that. Ender's Game has a great story to tell, but it is also beautiful to watch. It feels like 3D movie despite it is not. Space landscapes and -fights are gorgeous. It is always a risk to put a child to a leading role at a movie, but Asa Butterfield is a great choice for Ender's role. There is enough of sensitivity, yet enough character in his role. Harrison Ford is great as a General Graff. It is hard to believe that he is over 70 years old. Only thing which bother here is that movie feels to end too soon. It feels like it is a big budget Television show pilot movie. We will see if Ender's Game gets enough audience for a sequel. That really is needed. The great story may just to be a little too clever to its target audience. Visually stunning movie, which is have to watch from a big screen.

Goofs

Colonel Graff remarks that Napoléon Bonaparte "conquered the known world," which is absolutely untrue. First, in the time of the Emperor Napoleon I, the basic coastal geography of all continents except Antarctica was already known, so "known world" is a tautology in this case. Second, although Napoleon conquered a large area in Europe and briefly controlled some colonies in the Americas, his realm at its furthest expansion was only a small part of the whole world. Its strength lay in its population centers and trade routes, not its square mileage. It never matched the size of either the British Empire or the Russian Empire, both of whom were his frequent enemies. Napoleon's obsessive attempts to cripple those two empires backfired on him and led to his downfall.
