5.0 out of 5 stars Movie is Good reflection of books June 24 2008
Format:DVD
Some of the people reviewing this film don't seem to know that
it is describing events in Pullman's multibook series, "His Dark Materials".

The movie is an astonishingly accurate portrayal of the first book,
which takes place in another universe with fundamentally different
ground rules, and very different societies.

The questions left open in the movie are also an accurate reflection
of where the issues stood in the book. So the people who are complaining
about this really need to take issue with the book rather than the movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oustanding! May 1 2008
Format:DVD
This is my favourite fantasy movie from 2007--I liked it even better than Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The casting, direction, writing, and art direction are superb. The story is compelling and deep. Although this title is aimed at the teen set, the quality of this film transcends generations. I was particularly impressed by Dakota Blue Richards who is the perfect Lyra.

For some inexplicable reason this film did not do well at the box office. I really have no idea why. It did not seem to have any competition when it came out. If you missed it, now is your chance to catch it and discover a great movie to share with your whole family.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Fast, Underdeveloped April 24 2009
By Estrild
Format:DVD
There was little introduction, and the whole film sweeps by in 1 hr 45 mins, with little character development, and little explanation of what's going on. I found it hard to care about the characters, and to comprehend the writter's world. It was stressful to watch. As opposed to Lord of the Rings which is slowly introduced with much explanation of what's going on and why. I don't know why they didn't make this film at least half an hour longer to take some more time for this, and to slow things down.

I liked the story though, and presume the book is much more satisfying. The fantasy world is beautifuly depicted visually. Perhaps the film is meant to be watched repeatedly till one understands all the finer details.

It is very much like a flip side to Lion Witch and Wardrobe. Shame they may not come out with part two, as there are loose ends at the end of the film which add to the unsatisfyed feeling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant family fantasy movie
Great story, fabulous actors and amazing special effects. Sit down with your family and enjoy! (Very young children may find the armed polar bear fight scene a bit scary).

5.0 out of 5 stars A delight for teens and older
I really enjoyed this one, at the not-so-tender age of 66. The story is fascinating, most of the characters are well developed, and the visual FX are great. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Studio tampering killed what could have been so much more!
I mean come on, why remove the original ending weeks from release. The studio killed this potential trilogy. Shame really, it could have been GREAT!

2.0 out of 5 stars A pretentious boring story
While I generally love good fantasy stories, this one has all the hallmarks of being written ( as it was) by an author who is a dry academic. Read more
