I finally got around to reading Ender’s Game last month, and it’s an interesting book. It’s incredibly strange at some points, but it’s also quite visual in addition to having interesting characters, so there’s certainly the potential for a strong adaptation. After today’s Comic-Con panel, I’m still not entirely convinced, but I’m pretty damn close. If nothing else, the action should be exhilarating, and while it may not quite hit at the deeper themes (it sounds like they were going too broad to really hone in one aspect), it should at least be an entertaining sci-fi flick, especially where the space battles are concerned.
Hit the jump to read my recap of the panel. Ender’s Game opens November 1st.
