Percy Jackson and the Litghtning Thief Review
I was disappointed when I couldn't see this movie in theaters. So when I found out it was coming out on DVD and PPV I was pretty excited. I mean finally I could see it. So Chuck and I had a date night. We crawled in bed and watched the movie.
Percy is a Half Blood or a Demigod. He is the son of Poseidon, but he doesn't know yet. He has always thought he was just a delinquent kid who had ADHD, was dyslexic, and always caused trouble. Little does he know that his best friend Grover is a Satyr, and his favorite teacher is a Centaur. Soon his world takes a major turn.
Percy gets framed for stealing Zeus's thunderbolt, and goes on a journey to find out what happened and save his mother.
The movie overall was pretty cute. It is very juvenile, and you can tell it is really made for a younger crowd. I just started reading the book series and love the first one. I am sad however that the movie didn't even begin to follow the book.
I give the movie an overall 3.5 out of 5 stars.
