A disgrace to the books

I'm an incredibly big fan of the trilogy "His Dark Materials" and I can safely say that if you are too, you will want stay away from this movie. While it essentially follows the general plot of the book, it has captured nothing of the original magic of the books and has changed a ridiculous amount for no apparent reason. I can understand missing bits out due to time restrictions, but the movie has completely ripped the book up and then sellotaped it together in a mix mash of the original plot. Not only that but it is incredibly dumbed down, probably to suit the audience.

I could go on detailing the failings of what could a have been an excellent movie, but I think that Luke Ewing has said pretty much everything I feel. I highly recommend that you save any money from going to the cinema and buy the books. You'll soon understand why we are so annoyed with this joke of a movie.

I'm just glad I didn't waste any of my money to see this utter rubbish. If I were Philip Pullman, I would have shot myself just so I can spin in my grave!

A Delightfully Fun Romp for the Children

This is pantomime with serious actors. The critics have trashed it, the church gave it a bad wrap. This is however a very sound kids tale. An extremely enjoyable children's tale. Every scene the story is simply explained by a character (which is why I expect the professional reviewers trashed it). It works for me. I love this film. It is simple, yes but the acting is excellent the costumes are wonderful and the story is one of good and evil where the goodies come out on top because they do the right thing and try hard. I don't want to give away any spoilers but this movie is well worth the time to view. Apparently there was only enough market/cash for the Hobbit to be made so the sequels didn't make it into production. I think this is very unfortunate. Perhaps Sir Peter Jackson will give some thought to completing these movies as well.

Very good when you're not comparing it with the book

This is a good fantasy movie, amazing universe with excellent acting, especially the main character Lyra Belacqua played by Dakota Blue Richard.

I don't know why this movie received such a low rating. My guess is that they compared it with the original book, or maybe simply disagree with the book premises.
