Ender's Game - Review

When it comes to adapting beloved novels, Hollywood has a lot of blood on its hands. We all have our own personal laundry lists of books we spent our childhoods poring over that wound up getting sapped of their original spark and power on the way to the big screen. I could be wrong, but I suspect that diehard fans of Orson Scott Card's 1985 sci-fi allegory Ender's Gamemight walk out of Gavin Hood's lavish, eye-candy adaptation with a similar sensation — that they've spent more than two decades waiting for what ends up being an oddly lifeless and emotionally unaffecting film.
