Ender's Game

Corrected entry: At one point, Colonel Graff states that Napoleon "conquered the known world." This is far from true. The British had a sprawling empire, and there were many independent nations that were "known" at the time.

Correction: Graff is speaking hyperbolically. He's trying to make a point about Ender, not deliver a history lesson.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Ender is promoted to the Salamander Team, the Commander is pitching the baseball that is then caught by Ender. A conversation ensues and then the Commander enters the scene from a different corridor.

Correction: The game is being played in the hall in which Bonzo Madrid (the Commander) enters the corridor that the conversation is being held in. In simpler terms, the ball is pitched down the hall, and then it is hit by the batting toon. The ball then flies through a different corridor and is caught by Ender.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the bully corners Ender in the science room, the bully is smacked onto the ground and his hands land on many shards of glass. In the next shots, his hands are not bloodied.

Correction: Touching broken glass does not cut you. Even smacking broken glass won't cut you. To cut, the broken glass must slide along your skin. There was no sliding here.

Corrected entry: The final battle against the Formics is a real battle, not a simulation. So how come Ender can see the battle through dynamic, controllable camera angles? In the early simulations this made sense because, well, they're simulations. But in the final battle there's no way to get those views.

Correction: They were all real battles, not just the last one. They used real-time sensor information to render a holographic scene, and once you do that, you can place your viewpoint camera wherever you want it.

Corrected entry: The movie attempts to be realistic about everything in space. And it's their first experience in zero gravity yet somehow they line up in perfect formation without any way of controlling their motion. Did they have some sort of jet-pack or propelling device? They get scolded for looking like drunken ducks and yet they are able to control themselves in zero g as if by magic.


Correction: The device on Harrison Ford's hand is what lined them up not their ability to maneuver in zero gravity.
