Ender's Game (Sci-Fi Action 2013)

Yeah this movie was very much like the book but hella condensed. I remember some scenes that covered many chapters in the book, while the movie cleared them in under 30 seconds. Funny because it seemed like the story was on fast forward.

The movie was OK, but it had a hidden subplot that only came out in the end. The book goes into more detail regarding it, but I thought it was a wholly dumb premise to try to develop. It did turn into multiple follow-up books for the author though.

If you ever wanted to read this book but never did, this movie is a good reader's digest version of the whole thing. And after watching this, you may also realize why I didn't continue reading the series.
Rating - C
