The Golden Compass
My Rating:
(out of 5 stars)
3 Stars
The Golden Compass Poster
Primary Location: First Saw:Digitally Saw at/with: Suzy and Hanna
Rating: PG-13 Year: 2007 Category: Drama Fantasy Action
Director: Chris Weitz Time: 113 min. Writer: Chris Weitz & Philip Pullman

Mine: Enjoyable enough as a bit of action and pretty storytelling. I have not read the books, but still I thought that something was missing. It could have been longer and spent some more time fleshing out the mythology and characters. I should have seen this in the theater, as the spectacle is lost on the small screen.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: In a parallel universe, young Lyra Belacqua journeys to the far North to save her best friend and other kidnapped children from terrible experiments by a mysterious organization.
