After I read Ender’s Game I watched the movie and I can’t say the movie was bad, but many things in the movie were not relevant at all to the book. The movie was way too short and they fast forwarded too many things. They also dumbed down the twists like when Ender destroys the Buggers when he thought it was a simulation game. It even ditched all the somewhat important things. They must have cut out over 2 hours of plot between every new scene. It also did a few things in common like when something very important came along they would sometimes copy the text word by word. At Least it isn’t as different as “World War Z’. The book creator said, “The only thing my book and the movie had in common was the title.”
throughout their lifetime. But there is one emotion of them all that people want to avoid which is
Throughout the movie, Ender was portrayed as a brilliant and gifted boy, despite his young age. In comparison to the book, in which he was shown as very insightful and quick-witted, the film didn’t show the skillful side of him during the battles. As for physical characteristics, the author originally wrote the character as a blonde, fragile child, about six years old during the beginning of the story, but in the movie, the character was taller, seemingly ten years old, and brunette. Since the book focused more on the psychological aspect of Ender, the reader is able to see in depth how much he blamed himself for wounding others, whilst in the film, he seemed to be detached from the pain he caused. In the course of the movie, it is not explicitly
Ender Wiggins was only allowed to born so that he can save the human race from exstinction. Since birth he was a outcast, hated by his brother Peter, and constantly being hurt by everyone except his sister Valentine. After going into space for battle training, he becomes isolated from the other students immedetaly. Ender overcoming challenges finally begins to be accepted by the other students, only to be transferred and isolated again.
Bonzo Madrid is a supporting character in Ender’s Game, and commander of Salamander Army. He is described by Ender as tall, having slender lips, and beautiful black eyes. Bonzo has potential of being a good commander but lacks the ability to be a leader. He does not know how to unite his army, using threats and intimidation to earn his loyalty rather than respect. Bonzo hates Ender for being kinder and smarter than himself, letting his pride get in the way of situations. This causes problems only to himself when he refuses to acknowledge Ender’s potential in battles making him look foolish to other characters. Violence and revenge is his way to solve his problems, but it ultimately fails and creates more. He doesn’t enforce discipline but destroys
The first quote on page 19 is possibly one of the most important quotes in the whole novel.”Knocking him down was the first fight. I wanted to win all the next one’s too. So they’d leave me alone”(Ender 19), Ender says this when confronted by his parts and Colonel Graff about why he beat the Stilson boy so bad he is now in the hospital. This is the quote that helps introduce that Ender represents the Ego side of the brain. It is known that a major theory is that Ender is the Ego, Peter is the Id and Valentine is the superego. ” It isn 't what he did, Mrs Wiggin. It’s why”(Colonel Graf 19) supports it. It further illustrates how he does the wrong thing for the right reason which can be linked to the ego portion of the brain which is more conscious decisions. He knows what he needs to do at the right time even if it’s not exactly correct. The Ego mediates the Id and Superego instincts. This is shown in how he mediates his sister and brother. Valentine is the superego which is the more social/moral part of the brain and is learned from the parent role. This is Valentine’s main downfall unlike Peter who is the Id. This is the primal, non organized side This was Peter’s main downfall yet Ender seems to be a perfect balance of the
On Earth there was a bully named, Stilson. Ender found himself getting physically abused by him daily and when he finally got his opportunity, he made sure he was never bullied again. In battle school, there was a commander named, Bonzo that threatened to kill him; then, in the same scenario Ender decided to make sure that he would win the war and erase all future battles. In argument with Major Anderson, Graff states, “Ender’s not a killer. He just wins--thoroughly” (226). The whole time Ender had not been aware he had killed them, and the leaders were manipulating him for his own sake. They explain that they didn’t tell him that he actually killed both Bonzo and Stilson; so that he wouldn’t think of himself as a killer. Throughout the book Ender repeats that he doesn’t want to hurt anyone and doesn’t like that he has to be violent in order to be safe. If Ender would’ve found out, it would destroy his motivation and drive to want to be the best he can be. All in all, Ender is an overall better person because of the fact he didn’t know the
In the beginning of the chapter, two unknown characters are discussing Ender’s future. “He’s too malleable. Too willing to submerge himself in someone else’s will.” “Not if the other person is his enemy.” “So what do we do? Surround him with enemies all the time?” (Card, page 1) This is important because it foreshadows Ender’s future and the rest of the book. It shows that Ender is going to have a difficult life. Another compelling quote is introduced after Ender knocks Stilson to the ground. “Ender, however, was trying to figure out a way to forestall vengeance. To keep them from taking him in a pack tomorrow. I have to win this now, and for all time, or I’ll fight it every day and it will get worse and worse.” (Card, page 7) This led to Ender
In Orson Scott Card’s book Ender’s Game, Ender is continually set up against impossible odds by the International Fleet, which is part of a plan to train Ender to fight in the Third Invasion and end the bugger wars forever. Ender’s trials are portrayed more convincingly in the book, as the book shows him struggling with the expectations placed upon him more so than in the movie.
For someone so young, Ender is exceptionally calculating. In almost the very beginning of the novel, the author shows Ender being bullied by Stilson and his gang. Ender realizes that he must thoroughly beat Stilson so the rest of the gang wouldn’t pick on Ender ever
The book, Ender’s Game, is a book full of interesting events. A six year old boy named Ender Wiggin goes to Battle School, where he is continually tested and trained to become an elite commander. He succeeds at Battle School and eventually goes to Command School, where he leads his army to victory over the bugger troops. Because of this, the world is safe from being destroyed by the buggers. Even though Ender and his fleet are successful in defeating the buggers, Ender’s intelligence and skill is taken advantage of throughout the book. The I.F. takes away most of the freedom that Ender is entitled to and they manipulate him to do what they want him to do. This manipulation is quite evident throughout Ender’s Game.
Ender is a special character. He is a young boy, a hero, and the commander of an IF fleet, ruler of a planet, and many other things. He is a very different character from the other characters in the book. He has his own way of thinking from the other characters he can knows how to handle things that are thrown at him. Mostly the constant pressure. His actions are thought out he just simply knows what he is doing. Ender has a very unique personality no character in this book has personality that relates to his. Overall Ender is a real special
Who would have thought that a boy both violent and caring could save and eliminate a species? In the book Enders Game, Ender and he was no ordinary child, and his intellect was beyond any normal child. His life started to change as his monitor, a device that tracked what he did, was removed and he was forced to face with a long-time bully of his. As Ender gets pushed around, he hits a hard blow and gives no mercy to the boy if he ever wanted it to end. Surprisingly, the people in commands recognize his unfound talents and decided to train him in a school every boy would want to attend. As Ender goes on, he is to be faced with many challenges to come. In Ender's Game, Orson Scott Card suggests that when society is in conflict, many changes will
In the book, Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, Ender got bullied by multiple kids. He ended up getting in many fights that resulted in the bullies being dead. Before I started reading, I had thought that bullies didn’t always deserve what they got. After reading, I still strongly agree with this statement.
A fairly mutated boy, one distorted from ages worth of intended emotional desiccation is now the accurate plastered image of Ender Wiggin. The boy who in essence extracted all of his own virtue in unaware desperation to become what everyone else coveted him to be. His wealth of power quite unconceivable to the naked
