TLTR: A visually pleasing, a somewhat straight-forward plot and superb acting from all.
This movie is not a YA kind of movie. Neither was the book. It delves into many adult concepts, morality and philosophy. There seemed to be some key world building concepts left out on the editing floor; Third-Child rules, mind games and duality of sexists.
Yes, Ender’s Game the novel is written by a narrow-mind homophobia religiously republican. But you can’t paint every man, woman or child that worked on the movie with that brush.
