The truth about The Golden Compass is that it's a copycat. The Golden Compass is about Lyra (Dakota Blue Richards), an orphan who lives with her uncle Lord Asrial (Danield Craig) whose work puts her in danger. Lyra travels with the charismatic Mrs. Coulter (Nicole Kidman), a leader in their community who is going to the same city Lyra's uncle went for work. Lyra receives a secret golden compass that tells the truth.
First of all, The Golden Compass comes from the studio who made Lord of the Rings, but instead of making another LOTR trilogy they get a bad remake of Star Wars: similar characters, lines, and plot points that were borrowed from the classic saga. The fight scenes can be nice, but when they are struck instead of blood, a dust-like stuff comes out of them. Seeing The Golden Compass makes me not want to read the book. Ages 9+.
