* AwardSnub: The film itself did not get this. However, most people, including those ''within'' Hollywood, feel that this took the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects from [[{{Film/Transformers}} more]] [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd deserving films]].

** Despite these issues, some admire the developers for arguably having a more loyal grasp of the source material than the film executives. Several incidents from the novel omitted from the film were incorporated almost word-for-word, and the game notably follows the original sequence of events, avoiding the film's subsequent restructuring. To date, playing the game is the only way to view some of the cut footage. Though clunky execution and less-than-stellar graphics mar the overall experience for most gamers, it can be appreciated as a sincere attempt from a story standpoint.

* AwesomeMusic: The soundtrack includes a gorgeous original song from Music/KateBush. There's also "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjT31RrrP-4 Ragnar Sturlusson]]".



* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: When Iorek [[spoiler: punches the Panserbjorne king's jaw right off his face]] and you could hear the whole audience go Oh Snap!
** Very [[{{Pun}} Oh Snap]] since you [[spoiler: get that sound when half his face flies off]].

* NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity: Averted. As with TheDaVinciCode released the year previous, the movie attracted a large amount of controversy in the US before its release due its perceived anti-Christian themes. Yet unlike TheDaVinciCode, the film ended up doing poorly (at least in the US).

** It didn't help that New Line announced from the start that the criticism of religion would be completely neutered, which ended up pleasing no one. The religious right thought it still wasn't enough, and the fans were left wondering why they would adapt such a controversial book series in the first place if they were so worried about this.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: The film adaptation of the first book of HisDarkMaterials trilogy was marketed to children, and is considered a family film. But despite the Disneyfication process that suffered the adaptation (like removing most of the [[AuthorFilibuster hardcore atheist rants]]), it still had lot of dark elements, like a very violent polar bear fight, people being shot, lots of killings and many other things... Such as the [[SarcasmMode extremely heartwarming and uplifting]] ending scene which was left off the theatrical release.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: There are gunfights and KO's in this movie. Characters die. And again, [[spoiler:Iorek punching the Panserbjorne king's jaw off his face.]] However, despite that, the film was marketed to the same audience of TheChroniclesOfNarnia.
** Which ''also'' contains sword-fights and characters deaths.
