Critic Reviews for Lyra's Jordan

Much of the first hour of His Dark Materials is given over to world-building, and what a feast for the eyes this world is.

Jan 23, 2020 | Full Review…

His Dark Materials is, at its core, a story of adventure, so strap in and let's see where the zeppelins take us.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

At long last, the fabulous, dæmonic, loss-of-innocence journey of His Dark Materials is being adapted properly.

Nov 7, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Although director Tom Hooper goes heavy on the action in the premiere - so! many! shots! of! Lyra! running! - sometimes it feels like the characters themselves are just floating in space.

While the first episode of His Dark Materials is extremely slow and boring, the series as a whole shows promise.
