DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Fantasy Adventure - This is an effects-heavy fantasy film aimed largely at the younger set. Like the book series this is based on, the film is controversial due to perceived anti-Christian messages. Fans of stars Nicole Kidman and especially Daniel Craig may be disappointed by their very limited screen time.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 113 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:As expected, children loved "The Golden Compass."
TEENS:Only about half the males truly enjoyed this movie. The remaining half rated it as average or below average. These aren't great reviews, but they're not too bad considering this is a kids movie. The females enjoyed "The Golden Compass" very much. Approximately three-quarters rated it very high.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Three of the four male reviews are high, which is great. The female reviews are also high. Most rated it as above average.
ADULTS:The male reviews are very good. Just a small percentage of the reviews are average or lower. The female reviews are also very good but more of the ladies rated it as average or lower, which is a little disappointing. Overall I would recommend "The Golden Compass," but not strongly. Considering the money and talent behind this epic adventure, I would say these reviews are somewhat disappointing.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
There is a world where witches rule the northern skies, where ice bears are the bravest of warriors, and where every human is joined with an animal spirit who is as close to them as their own heart.

But this world is dominated by the Magisterium, which seeks to control all of humanity, and whose greatest threat is the last remaining Golden Compass and the one child destined to possess it.

Twelve year-old Lyra Belacqua (Dakota Blue Richards) lives an extraordinary life as a ward of distinguished Jordan College. Tearing unsupervised through the streets on mad quests for adventure with her loyal friend Roger (Ben Walker), Lyra is accompanied everywhere by her daemon, Pantalaimon (voiced by Freddie Highmore) – a small, ever-changing animal that serves as a constant voice of reason.

But Lyra's world is changing.

Her uncle, Lord Asriel (Daniel Craig), is embarking on a trip to the Arctic Circle to investigate a mysterious element intriguingly called Dust, but the Magisterium would go to any lengths – including shutting down Jordan College – to stop him.

At the same time, rumors of children mysteriously disappearing and being taken north become terrifyingly real when her best friend Roger goes missing. Lyra swears to go to the ends of the earth to rescue him, and when a new figure appears at the college – Marisa Coulter (Nicole Kidman), a beguiling scientist and world traveler – she sees her best chance to get away.

But Lyra finds that she has been drawn into a trap designed to take from her the one thing she possesses that the Magisterium desperately seeks – the Golden Compass. Given to her as a gift by the Master of Jordan College (Jack Shepherd), it is a mystical, powerful device that can tell the truth, reveal what others wish to hide and foreshadow – and even change – the future.

At that moment, Lyra realizes that she will have to break away from Mrs. Coulter and embark on her own journey to rescue Roger and stop the Magisterium. But fate puts her in the company and protection of a tribe of seafaring Gyptians led by Lord Faa (Jim Carter), Ma Costa (Clare Higgins) and Farder Coram (Tom Courtenay).

Banding together an unlikely alliance with the Gyptians, the mysterious witch Serafina Pekkala (Eva Green) and Texas airman Lee Scoresby (Sam Elliott), Lyra is flung into an adventure that will take her over sky and ocean, to the wilds of the icy north, where she gains a powerful ally in a great armored bear named Iorek Byrnison (voiced by Ian McKellen), who pledges to serve her in her campaign until she prevails.

A great war is coming – one that threatens not only Lyra's world but all the parallel worlds waiting just beyond the northern lights. With her band of friends and allies, and the power of the Golden Compass, Lyra will need all her skill and all her courage, to stop it.
