This kid film noir touching on magic dust substance abuse, cranky clerics, worrisome wizards, goth grownup child abusers and computer-generated homicidal polar bear throat slashers, is less likely to dazzle the senses than exhaust minds of all ages.

Even if we couldn't compare it to the far superior fantasy films which have appeared over the past few years, I still don't think that The Golden Compass would be seen as a winner.
