Many people believe (as I do) that the Hobbit films were a one- to two-film story stretched out into three. This film is the opposite: a two-film story that was squashed into one. Any issues this fanedit may suffer are entirely due to that - the editor only had so much to work with - and its attempt to restore the deleted scenes as far as possible to extend and flesh out the storyline makes it a major improvement on the original. Highly recommend this as the definitive version of Ender's Game for any true fan.

I first saw this film in the theater (never read the book). I liked the movie enough to purchase it on DVD when it was released.

This fanedit adds about 7 minutes to the runtime and the scenes are flawlessly restored and seamless.

If you enjoy the film, as I do, then you will definitely want this version.

This is a pretty light edit, but since there is limited material to work with there's only so much that could be done. All the added scenes flow perfectly, I could not tell at all where the additions were made while watching. Any complaints I have are aimed at the original movie vs the book. This is now my go-to version to watch.

This is LONG overdue. I've been working through a backlog since like many of us, I have nothing but time while we hunker down.

There should be a fanedit category "Polishing a turd", for faneditors who take weak source material and do their level best to make it enjoyable. I was so disappointed in the theatrical release of this film. There was so much material from the books that just didn't appear. It made the film feel very disjointed, at least to me.

This extended edition goes as far as it possibly can to fix the problems in the theatrical release. The end result is...fuller. Definitely more enjoyable, less disjointed and closer to the book in a lot of ways. The edits are technically very well done. This will be the version I continue to watch.

Thank you for a fine effort on a flawed film.
