It’s basically a futuristic presentation of something that’s taken place in our own history over and over and it is hard not to hate the society that would allow it to be a reality. One can even start to feel a bit sorry for the so called enemy, and I wonder if that had been expanded on, if it would have made it strong enough to prevail better at the box office.
Even being another could have been franchise; I recommend it for the space fan club crowd for at least being an entertaining couple of hours. It’s something I could watch again and actually makes me consider at least reading the book series if for nothing than to see where else the characters go. Once the final round is played, it earns “Ender’s Game” four out of five invasions.
