In the early 2000s, Jake Lloyd was one of the leading candidates to play Ender. Coincidentally, in 2000, when Lloyd appeared in a magazine ad campaign to promote library patronage, he was shown reading a copy of "Ender's Game". See more »
The Battle Center's gravity is portrayed inconsistently. The gravity is generated by centripetal force (the rotating circles). However, in the gates at the entrance to the arena, it is clearly not spinning. This would mean, then, that there is no gravity in this hallway - yet the people who stand in the gate are clearly standing on the ground with gravity. (The issue is raised in Chapter 7 of the book, when Ender is talking about all sorts of mysteries with Petra Arkanian) and is left unanswered.) See more »

Ender's Game is not a perfect film. It rushes through certain important points, and leaves out other parts altogether, instead what you get is a flawed but enjoyable movie that ultimately succeeds, because it always keeps its goal in sight.
Certain things about this movie such as the justification for child soldiers, Ansible Technology, and the Genius of the main group of Kids will be best understood by the book readers.
The film has wonderful visuals with exciting CGI to showcase the important Battle Room.
The Acting by Harrison Ford and Asa Butterfield is one of the strengths this project has. They maintain a tense and believable relationship that is very much like the original story.
Ultimately the climax of this movie and its main message is what sets it apart from many other Sci-Fi films. The emotion is very much there, and anyone willing to give this film a try will not be disappointed.
