The Golden Compass - movie review

In The Golden Compass, based on the book by Philip Pullman, a young girl named Lyra Belacqua goes on an adventure with clans, gypsies, and an armored bear to uncover the truth regarding the microscopic particle, dust, that could untie different worlds. Another purpose for her adventure was to find several missing children, including her friend. To accomplish this task, she uses a device called the golden compass to find the truth behind their questions and problems. Only one who is skilled enough can interpret the messages that the compass gives. This was an interesting movie to watch. It is very exciting and it is also filled with suspense and action that will keep you glued to your seat. I recommend this movie to everyone. - Reviewed by C., grade 9. .
