Ratings & Reviews

  1. Ade Hendy's rating of the film The Golden Compass

    His visual seriously outstanding!

  2. Thomas Dods's rating of the film The Golden Compass

    The books are amazing and profound. This film is the opposite and put the brakes on what could have been an iconic fantasy franchise. Never ask the awful Chris Weitsz to direct anything!

  3. smndvdcl's rating of the film The Golden Compass

    A disappointing adaptation to a memorable Pullman novel. This could have been the start of a franchise in the same vein as Harry Potter and The Hunger Games, but it tanked thanks to shoddy direction and an over-emphasis on glacial CGI.

  4. Amandio Filipe Moura's rating of the film The Golden Compass

  5. Daniel Iván's rating of the film The Golden Compass

    I must say this is one of my favorite movies in terms of production design for CGI. In my opinion this is one of the most beautiful steam-punk universes ever created for film and a touchstone for anyone interested in special effects design. A shame the series was never continued.

  7. Frederico Cintra Torres's rating of the film The Golden Compass

  8. Seth Farmer's rating of the film The Golden Compass

    I'd rather have a Hollywood adaptation of Pokemon.

  9. Daniel Roque's rating of the film The Golden Compass

    This parallel universe where each person has is own dæmon almost sells a great premise. But the movie feels exactly like a premise - a premise for something more that never came to happen.

  10. J. O.'s rating of the film The Golden Compass

    High expectations were not met. Presumably this would be the first in a trilogy, although five years later and there's still no second film. There was too much information coming from all angles at all times with no time to let it sink in, yet it still felt thin and under-developed (especially considering the source material). Looks great, but that's the only high point.

  11. liside's rating of the film The Golden Compass

    why did he even bother making this movie, since it has nothing to do with the book? did he even read it? I'm pissed. chris weitz, you clearly showed your skills in making new moon. keep on with that stuff, don't ruin good things.

  12. Emma Joye's rating of the film The Golden Compass

    You forget the movie completely after a few days...

  13. WhatsUpWill's rating of the film The Golden Compass

    "You... you wish to ride me?"

  14. MarcH's rating of the film The Golden Compass

    Fundamentalists bitched about it, so it automatically has some merit. If nothing else, it's beautiful to look at.

  15. Xazuru's rating of the film The Golden Compass

    Too many things that the protagonist wanted to accomplish, thus leaving viewers confuse in the storyline. The ending is very disappointing.

  16. Anne's rating of the film The Golden Compass

    Visually interesting. Not much else.

  17. Nikola's rating of the film The Golden Compass

    I hate this movie with a passion.

  18. Reginald Healer Marcellin's rating of the film The Golden Compass

    Unfortunate seeing as how His Dark Materials was primo source material

  19. virginwolf's rating of the film The Golden Compass

  20. FailedImitator's rating of the film The Golden Compass

    I had a good nap while watching this piece of crap. It was the only good thing about the film. Oh, and the popcorn at the cinema on that day was especially tasty -- extra caramel, or something -- so that's another good thing.

  21. Swamp Leech's rating of the film The Golden Compass

  22. Minousch's rating of the film The Golden Compass

    The costumes and the set design were amazing, but maybe it's not really understandable, if you haven't read the books.

  23. Jardun's rating of the film The Golden Compass

    Polar Bear's wearing armor and battling it out = straight awesome. The rest of the film was meh.
