The Golden Compass

The film this could have been! Art direction is superb, the vehicles, the animals all top notch..
The story, such as we are able to glean from the movie, is full of invention and ideas. The movie shows us one idea -- that a persons soul is manifested as a companion animal, and follows through with it in every corner. What a cool idea that animation now makes seamlessly possible.
I was sold the moment Daniel Craig graced the frame while his Ocelot bristled...
Watch this one for what it could have been, and hope by the time the sequel comes out the studios grow some balls...
