"Ender’s Game” three points for parents:
Violence: Fighting between boys results in injuries (one major), though no blood is shown. Threats are made to the life of one cadet. A video game requires violence to complete. A boy forces his brother to play a violent game and says he could kill him if he wanted to.
War: Children are trained to battle. One character experiences post-traumatic stress disorder. Battle scenes of air combat are common.
Other elements: Children have orders sharply barked at them, but they are in the military. One boy is seen in the shower, but only his upper body is shown. One bad word in Spanish is used, and there is name calling. A boy is given a sedative. Blood is shown on a device removed from a boy’s body.
