"Ender's Game" movie quotes bring the science-fiction novel of the same name by Orson Scott Card to the big screen in the film adaptation. The movie was directed by Gavin Hood, who also penned the screenplay. "Ender's Game" opened in the United States on November 1, 2013.
In "Ender's Game," earth is put on alert when aliens, known as the Formics, attack earth. Previously when the Formics attacked, it took all of earth's resources, specifically the heroism of Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), to defeat the enemy. Now that Rackham has retired from battle, the International Fleet must look to new leaders to fill his shoes.
Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) enlists the help of children for this task, putting the young kids through Battle School to teach them what they will need to keep the next generation of earth's people safe. One leader emerges from the pack, Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, and the young boy is soon made the leader of the army as they head into battle to save mankind. It's big shoes to fill and a lot on the line but there's something special about Ender that makes him the perfect fit. Abigail Breslin, Hailee Steinfeld and Viola Davis co-star in the film."Ender's Game" joins theaters already buzzing with other great movies including "The Counselor," "Bad Grandpa," "Escape Plan," "The Fifth Estate," "Captain Phillips," "Gravity," "Machete Kills," "Runner Runner," "Don Jon," "Rush, "Prisoners,", "Enough Said," "The Family," and "Riddick,".
Debating the Morality
Major Anderson: "You really don't see them as children, do you? When it's over, what will be left of the boy?"Major Anderson has a morality conflict about sending children into battle. Colonel Graff sees it as the only choice, that they can debate moralities after the world is safe.
Colonel Graff: "What's it matter if there's nothing left at all? When it's over, we will have the luxury of debating the morality of what we do."80Should this be higher or lower?
New Kind of Soldier
Colonel Graff: "They know our strategies. They've learned our weaknesses and the alien attack nearly destroyed us. That must never be allowed to happen again. If we're going to survive, we'll need a new kind of soldier, one who doesn't think the way we think, fear the things we fear, one the enemy would never expect."Colonel Graff explains what they need to do to secure their future. They must seek out a new kind of soldier if they will beat the aliens when they come next time.89Should this be higher or lower?

Ender Wiggin: "So I'm not the first…"
Mazer Rackham: "No, but you will be the last."24Should this be higher or lower?
There's Greatness in You, Ender
