Will it be enough to satisfy fans of Philip Pullman's widely read 'His Dark Materials' trilogy? Hard to say. But for the uninitiated this is an engaging adventure, even when Chris Weitz's screenplay lacks the compelling clarity of Pullman's prose.
Definitely not enough to satisfy fans of Pullman's series; and honestly while watching it I felt that if I hadn't read the books I would have been even more lost. It lacked cohesion.
