the Earth was intruded by the Formics, an alien race the was determined to destroy humanity. 70 years later, the people of Earth had form troops to defend themselves against the Formics. Ender was a quiet but intelligent boy. he was monitored and soon recruited into the troops. he was separated from his families and brought into a battle school in orbit. he was trained and tested to become a killer. he despise what he did the moment he found out that the stimulation he was put through was actually an ongoing battle against the Formics.
Ender was originally a lovable character, especially the way he stood up for himself in school, against the bullies. he showed excellent adaptation in his classes, directed perfect battle strategies against other teams. but to think that he couldn't accept the reason for him to go through all the training, was simply naive. it should be more than obvious enough to realize that battle school trained its troops for battles. but with his smart mouth and arrogant attitude, he went around defying orders and simply decided to quit after the experience of having bloods on his hands. he became such a distasteful character it was impossible to agree with him. fortunately the film in overall was very entertaining and engaging, making it a fun adventure to have.
