Asa Butterfield as Andrew Ender Wiggin was unrecognisable from his last film Hugo. A complete tranformation but the best aspect was he was still a child, albiet a smarter one. In fact the whole cast of children made their individual impacts pretty well since I remember them but it is "Ender's Game". Harrison Ford is back with the same grumpy face that he is face for. Ben Kingsley switches from inspirational to hot head at various points but fumbles with the Maori accent. However, at the end of the day, they did what they needed to do. The amazing component wasn't the VFX, or the acting or the background score. For me, it was a message that was instilled into a story in 1984 that as a movie in 2013, is still relevant. Interpretation is a to each his own concept but it is there and it still has relative value today when technology has advanced beyond imaginations of that era.
