Ender’s Game (Trailer #1) Review
I am finding it very hard to care about this film. The plot doesn’t really interest me, the characters don’t interest me and the trailer is very bland for a big budget science fiction film. The trailer did that stupid flashing in and out of shots which I hate! On the plot side of things I really don’t like the whole the world entirely relying on a child, instantly lost interest. The only part of this film that looks remotely interesting is the zero G fight training and that will be five minutes, so no thank you. Actually I want to know why Ben Kingsley has drawings on his face. Back to problems its director also directed X-Men Origins: Wolverine that’s a really bad start, oh and in my research I discovered the effects company behind this went into bankruptcy during post production. I struggle to see why people are interested in this film, so if anyone who read the book could explain this to me that would great.
My Score: D+
Release date: 1st November 2013
The Earth was ravaged twice by the Buggers, an alien race seemingly determined to destroy humanity. Seventy years later, the people of Earth remain banded together to prevent their own annihilation from this technologically superior alien species. Ender Wiggin, a quiet but brilliant boy, may become the savior of the human race. He is separated from his beloved sister and his terrifying brother and brought to battle school in orbit around earth. He will be tested and honed into an empathetic killer who begins to despise himself as he learns to fight in hopes of saving Earth and his family.
Top 5 Scenes
5. Alien Attack Present Day
This looks kind of cool but I swear if I see that damn flashing in and out of black again I will flip out. It fools idiots into thinking the action is faster than it really is and all that happens is the film looks worse when seen. Not sure what our weakness is supposed to be but apparently its swarms of bugs. I hate a really small enemy, just annoys me.
4. Bored Harrison
Why would you put this shot in a trailer, he clearly looks bored about even being there. A good five seconds dedicated to a bored Harrison Ford looking out of a window. It’s just so funny!
3. Training Station
Alright so here is the training academy situated in an orbiting space station. You can clearly see the Zero G training room in the middle. That’s pretty much it. I hope everyone dies. Come on asteroids!
2. Zero Gravity Fighting
This looks fairly good, or mildly entertaining. I am seriously struggling to care. So I am assuming at some point they will be fighting the alien bugs hand to hand in space? Otherwise I cannot think why you would need this training. Nobody fights in open space! That’s like swimming down to a submarine and punching it.
1. Is This The End Of The Film?
Is this the end of the film? Do I not have to sit through what to me looks like 2 hours of boredom? Probably not, but it’s nice to think about. I don’t get this film, I don’t get what he just did, I don’t know why he did it, I mainly don’t know why this book is a world best seller, but then so was Twilight so who cares what millions of idiots think. Wow this was a surprisingly negative review. Just don’t like bland science fiction films, you can literally think of anything in this genre.
Well that’s my views. Now what do you think about this newest trailer?
