    If only adapter-director Gavin Hood's movie had been tempered with craft and care and wasn't such a blunt instrument, one that seems designed as a delivery system for CGI derring-do instead of the heartbreaker it should be. show more

    There's lots of zero-g action in Ender's Game - even old Han Solo takes a whirl. show more
