Aanchir and I went and watched The Golden Compass yesterday with a couple of friends. If you want my opinion, I say it's definitely worth watching. I only read the book (and its two sequels) at the beginning of this week, but that in no way lessened my liking of the movie. It managed to stay relatively true to the book while glancing over some of the touchy religious subjects and rearranging things to better fit it to the medium of film. In addition, the acting was good and the characters were true to form, with the possible exception of Pantalaimon, whose lines seemed thrown in without much thought. All in all, a good movie.
