In 3 words Ender’s Game is intense, dramatic and heart warming.
Good morning Loves. As you know I absolutely LOVE going to the movies. When I heard from my friend that the book Ender’s Game was being made into a movie I was excited to see one of my favourite book series come to life on screen. But then I had a second thought…I said to myself, “Oh I hope the movie industry doesn’t ruin the book.”
Books into movies are usually Blah, but not this time
This often happens when books are translated into a movie script – a la Twilight Saga; which is funny because Ender’s Game was created by Summit Entertainment, the same company that made the Twilight Saga books into movies. Anyways, I am happy to say this is not the case for Ender’s Game. I am usually not into science fiction, but Ender’s Game is absolutely the exception to my usual crime-thriller book rule.
I fell in love with the characters in Ender’s Game and I couldn’t stop reading the books – To date I have read 4 of the 5 books in the series and I am right in the middle of the last one.
Even if you haven’t read the books you should still see the movie
The movie story line tells itself and even if you don’t know what’s going to happen next because you didn’t read the book, the movie is still awesome.
Actually it’s probably better that you don’t know what’s coming next in Ender’s Game because the suspense is exciting. I knew what to expect next and honestly the movie seemed a little rushed for my liking compared to the book, but I understand that the movie producers had to fit everything in.
Even if Sci-Fi isn’t your thing, you will love Ender’s Game
Ender’s Game is a science fiction book because it’s about an alien invasion, but that’s just the undertone. The real story of Ender’s Game is the relationships between the characters and the heroic young Ender Wiggin. Who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned American Hero?! When Ender is pushed to his limits he still comes out victorious – You gotta love that.
Ender’s Game could have been in any type of setting other than space – it could have been about hunting animals in the woods or fighting creatures in the deep blue sea – and I would still be in love with it because it’s about the story of the characters.
OK No Spoiler Alert
No I didn’t spoil it for you by telling you that Ender comes out victorious in the end. We all know the hero wins at the end, the real story is about how he gets there and what he has to go through to win.
Oh and there is a big cast – Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley and Abigail Breslin. LOVE IT.
PS – If you have read the book I just have to say that little Bean is TOO CUTE. Kind of like a young Taylor Lautner.
If you saw Ender’s Game – what did you think?
