The Golden Compass

When I saw the trailer for this, I was like wow, looks the same as the Chronicles of Narnia, then I saw that it was rated PG-13 and I got kind of excited. I thought it would be a violent version of Chronicles of Narnia. Then I heard rumors that the first Dark Knight trailer would be playing for The Golden Compass, so I told myself I had to see it and I did. I was extremely disappointed by this movie. First of all, NO DARK KNIGHT TRAILER!!!! Second of all, if you’re gonna make a movie PG-13, make it PG-13, there was only one scene in the whole movie that needed a PG-13 rating. Everything else could’ve been PG, that really pissed me off because there were a couple of scenes that could’ve been a lot better if they just stuck to there rating, it felt like they forgot that they rated the movie PG-13 when they were making it. The other thing that really got on my nerves was the fact that Daniel Craig only had about three lines in the whole movie and they made like he was a main character. The plot of the movie is that a girl named Lyra is trying to save her kidnapped friend from some people named Gobblers, she also has this compass that tells you the answer to any question you ask it, but for some reason she’s the only one who can read it ofcourse. Also, the entire movie, Lyra is trying to figure out what these magic particles called Dust is , so why doesn’t she just ask her stuped little Compass. The only cool idea of this movie was the daemons. Daemons are these animal companions that are always at your side, these animals are your souls and what ever happens to them also happens to you and vice-versa. This was interesting because any time someone died, their animal would disappear which added to the excitement in a way, it was also cool because you liked to see who had which animals and thinking what kind of animal you wanted. The last thing I would like to say about this movie s that Nicole Kidman did an ok job.Grade: D-
