Nicole Kidman’s presence in this elaborate fantasy flick is emblematic of the movie itself: aesthetically lush but ultimately cold to the touch. This adaptation of the first novel in British writer Philip Pullman’s “His Dark Materials” trilogy has some fanciful moments but never achieves the sense of awe-inspiring wonder of the “Lord of the Rings” films, to which comparisons will be inevitable. It’s also probably too scary for a lot of kids, with its themes of totalitarianism and mind control; adults, meanwhile, may find it hard to take seriously, despite how seriously it takes itself. The visual highlight is supposed to be the battle between two powerful, armored polar bears, voiced by Ian McKellen and Ian McShane. But it’s all a bit of a drag, even given the sprightly energy of our heroine, 12-year-old orphan Lyra Belacqua, played by newcomer Dakota Blue Richards. PG-13 for sequences of fantasy violence. 114 min.
