The controversial and somewhat eagerly anticipated Ender's Game was not the first and only story about a kid being recruited to save the Earth through a video game simulation. That privilege goes to the original and totally un-derivative film, The Last Starfighter. Since then, the premise has become somewhat tired due to overexposure, namely by the use of actual video game addicts to pilot drone fighters in recent times. A tired premise, indeed, until now, where the additional plot element of hamburgers makes the entire production much more appetizing. Can you wait to find out what hamburgers have to do with child recruitment into video game wars that turn out to be real? You can't.
