Ender's Game does not go easy on the kids
5 second plot: Earth was attacked by an alien race and humanity was nearly wiped out. But somehow we killed the fuckers. So now it's revenge time. The military is training the smartest kids to take the battle to the home planet of the aliens. I'm not sure why they need kids, but there is an explanation somewhere in the movie.
5 second review: I don't like the adult - kid relations, they are weird. But I really like the sci-fi in this movie. It's pretty spectacular. The way the alien race 'swarms' is amazing. And what I like the most is the moral of the tale. 'The way we win matters.' True that.
IMDb score: 7,2/10
