|This is a very, very good children's fantasy about "The Magisterium," an organization dedicated to ridding the world and universe of free will. The "sands" that percolate from other worlds into the consciousness of the inhabitants of our world threaten the existing, invested order of things and will undermine the authority of the establishment. Our heroine, a 12 year old, has a "golden compass" that can interpret the truth and thwarts the machinations of Nicole Kidman.|
None of the reviews that I came across mentioned the philosophical aspect but I see that it has been attacked as being "anti-God." The visual effects are stunning.
