There are worlds beyond our own - the compass will show the way.

Lyra Belaqua (Dakota Blue Richards), living in Oxford's Jordan College, is a young girl living among scholars. Her world may seem diverse, from physical embodiments of souls that take the shape of an animal but similar to people around you to become friends and enemies. She is thrown into a perilous adventure when she overhears a conversation of an extraordinary microscopic particle, Dust, which is only found in the open Arctic of the Northern lands. This particle is said to unite different worlds, and is feared by many who want to destroy it forever. As Lyra is flung into the middle of this horrible struggle, she meets wondrous creatures both big and small, and villains who are not what they seem. Gobblers, that kidnap children, will turn out in the most unexpected places. And a magical compass of gold that will answer any question if one is skilled enough to read it. Lyra's adventure continues throughout these three books, and the first is about to be told.

Theatrical report

Even though I haven't read the books even I can see that the story has been hacked to bits. It's as if They™ were desperately trying to bring the running time down so as not to bore the kiddies. It's very disappointing.

The bear fight is good, though, it took everyone by surprise.
