Ender's Game Blu-ray and DVD Short Review

4 stars for this unusual and imaginative sci-fi film.Ender's Game cover
Ender's Game is written (screenplay) and directed by Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins:Wolverine, Tsotsi) and is based on the best selling novel of the same name, written by Orson Scott Card. 
It is set in a world where humanity is reeling from an attack by a race known as the Formics. Having been saved only by the heroic actions of one Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley - Schindler's List, Gandhi), the army are more than keen to recruit what theyGraff and Ender believe to be their biggest asset, a generation of children who have trained in military and fighting techniques and strategy using computer games.
Enter Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield - Hugo, The Boy In The Striped Pajamas), a highly skilled gamer who is chosen for entry to Battle School by Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford - Paranoia, Indiana Jones). He is the only member of his family to make it this far, his brother having washed out for excessive aggression, and his sister, Valentine (Abigail Breslin - Little Miss Sunshine, Signs) failing due to her compassion.
