Golden Compass, The
horizontal line

Phenomenal special effects and magical sets dominate this imaginative, action-packed, cameo-studded (Daniel Craig, Ian McShane, Christopher Lee, Kristin Scott Thomas, Kathy Bates, Derek Jacobi, et al.), but convoluted,114-minute, 2007 fantasy film about a cheeky and courageous 12-year-old orphan (Dakota Blue Richards) with has a truth-divulging compass who is joined by her shape-shifting daemon companion (voiceover by Freddie Highmore), a fiercely loyal armor-wearing bear (voiceover by Ian McKellen), an adventurous Zeppelin-piloting aviator (Sam Elliott), and arrow-wielding witches (Eva Green, et al.) when she searches for her best friend (Ben Walker) and other missing children (Charlie Rowe, et al.) after goblins kidnap them on the order of a mysterious and powerful woman (Nicole Kidman); too violent and confusing for young children.
