"After months of waiting to see this film on reading the books I have got to say I am so disappointed! The film didn't seem to flow from scene to scene as the book did,everything was in the wrong place. Lyra herself, although she had the right look, missed the passion and bold and powerful character reflected in the book. Just like Daniel bloody Radcliff in Harry Potter! What happened at the end too? Why didn't Lord Asriel build a bridge in to the other world and leave a cliff hanger, what was that ending all about!? Also, there was no magic to it, it was just boring. This film could have been something amazing, spellbinding, tragic, beautiful and mesmerizing and a truly brilliant tale that would leave a person desperate to see the next film. Why is it that the lord of the rings was so amazing and this turned out to be another Harry Potter? Leaving out all the blood & gore because of the children. Bad job!!!!"
