When on the colony planet during the discussion between Ender, Rackham, Graff, the "Ta moko" (Maori facial tattoo) on Mazer Rackham's nose is "peeling" at the edges. Look on the right side of his face on his nose. The peeling edge can be clearly seen. See more »
Fifty years ago an alien force known as the Formics attacked Earth. Tens of millions died. It was only through the sacrifice of our greatest commander that we avoided total annihilation. We've been preparing for them to come back ever since. The International Fleet decided that the world's smartest children are the planet's best hope. Raised on war games, their decisions are intuitive, decisive, fearless. I am one of those recruits.

Never having read the book I wasn't hugely anticipating the release of this movie but my wife who read the book many years ago dragged me along. But from the opening scenes right to the climactic finale I was glued to the screen. Asa B and Harry F both give outstanding performances backed up by the totally brilliant supporting cast with a special mention to Sir Ben K big nose and everything. I loved the score, sfx and script all top drawer and a massive improvement on the directors (Gavin Hood) previous effort wolverine. I have read about the original authors controversial views and could not see anything that pollutes the film in anyway. Its also a good exercise for Harry F to get his space legs back in preparation for episode 7. In conclusion if you like a good sci fi spectacular go see this movie today, you will not be disappointed.
