As a huge fan of the His Dark Materials books I was extremely disappointed with the film. It started off with changing the name; The Northern Lights to The Golden Compass. Things quickly wen't downhill from there.

I'm not against adaptations, I was a massive teen fan of the Harry Potter books and films, the build up of the films was just as exciting as the films themselves. But The Golden Compass didn't seem to understand the books - at all. It was a shame, as it should have worked. Let's hope they just re-make the whole thing - Spiderman style!
