The Golden Compass

Score: 3.5 out of 5 stars * * *
About this movie:
Lyra Belacqua (Dakota Blue Richards) is an orphan who lives happily in Jordan College, Oxford, playing with local boys and terrorizing the professors. However, when Lyra overhears scholars discussing a plot against her uncle, Lord Asriel (Daniel Craig), centering a mysterious substance called Dust, her curiosity is roused. Soon Lyra is in over her head as she uncovers a frightening plot and a whole new world of possibilities.
This movie is part 1 out of 3 , a chronicle film and so after I've watched this film, the story plot was slow to build up the characters, obviously because this movie has time to continue onto the next sequal. It is another kids movie with similar themes like "Star Dust" & "The Chronicles of Narnia". However I think that this story plot is not as interesting and popular when it is compared with "The Chronicles of Narnia".
