Is His Dark Materials worth watching?

I recently read the Narnia chronicles, and I loved them. I then asked Google for advice on what books to read that are somewhat similar. One of the suggestions I received was to read The Golden Compass, the book on which His Dark Materials is based. And as I think about it, that has got to be very true.

This is a fantastic fairy-tale story with lots of action, bears that can talk, good people, evil people, love, family, and a fantastic Ruth Wilson playing the role of Marisa Coulter. Dafne Keen is also great in her role as Lyra, and James McAvoy is doing a good job as Lord Asriel. In other words, this is a fantastic story that will entertain both young and old. I can warmly recommend it!
