Screen newcomer Dakota Blue Richards stars as young heroine Lyra Belacqua, Casino Royale star Daniel Craig appears as Lyra's ruthless adventurer uncle, Lord Asriel, and Nicole Kidman assumes the glamorous guise of the villainous Mrs. Coulter. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
I really enjoyed this movie. Very different from any movie i have seen. I like the story line of it and the way they use the "deamons" as there souls very interesting. I see people mentioning LOTR and SW however this is completely different and not 3.5 hours long either.
This book was written by someone who is a proud atheist who didn't like CS Lewis's "the lion, the witch, and the wardrobe" so they decided to write a book about how in the end they kill God and live happily ever after! This is Satan's message too, so if you're into that, would strongly recommend this. But if you accept God who says to have nothing to do with them, I very strongly suggest you do not endorse this movie with your time or you money. This is the first part of the trilogy, the author and others do not want you to know the real story this so your children will get their message.
