The Ender's Game 2013 8 out of 10
Harrison Ford in a Sci-fi movie......I'm in... Of course this movie which is based on a classic Sci-fi book called Ender's Game is more about the kids than Harrison. Think of it as Harry Potter meets Starship Troopers (with a little more Troopers) . The story follows a brilliant young boy named Ender as he makes his way through battle school. Earth was attacked by an alien species called the Formics awhile back and has been preparing to battle them if they return. Although the movie features young children and has a laser tag in space feel to the training sequences, it somehow at the same time feels more adult. I liked the concepts and the story of this film and if I find the time would like to read the book version. It was one of the better sci-fi movies of the year and a lot better than Obilivion (which came out earlier in the year). The movie had a very satisifying ending as well.
