Movie Review: The Golden Compass

I would usually try to do a short synopsis on films..but since there was so much going on in this movie, I don’t know how to sum it up! so heres the wiki link!: The Golden Compass

I completely forgot it was based off a trilogy..bad idea… The CG was absolutely amazing though, enhancing the realism of the magical world. Watching the heroic journey in the fantasy world made me want to be a little kid again. Although it was an enjoyable movie that tingled my imaginative side, I found the story to be a bit convoluted as well as too long. I felt like how those people who watched the 4th Harry Potter movie should feel if they didn’t read the book! They tried to cram a huge story into a 2 hour film, jumping from one plot to another without clear-cut explanations. Unlike most fantasy epics though, this film has a much darker feel to it, which is a nice change up. Like I mentioned earlier, I forgot this movie was based off a trilogy, so I was caught off guard and was completely surprised when the credits started to scroll >___< Overall, it’s an enjoying film filled with action and beautiful imagery.

My rating: 6.0/10
Should you watch it? – I liked it! But I think this would be a better rental than anything.
