Editorial reviews

"[T]he movie artfully turns a tale of Greek gods interacting with humans into a fast-paced, cheeky adventure saga."
USA Today - Claudia Puig (02/16/2010)

"Columbus generates genuine energy during action scenes..."
Variety - Peter Debruge (02/11/2010)

3 stars out of 5 -- "The plot races, especially by the standards of an origin story, Columbus mixing monsters and emotional beats with a touch that's far lighter than he demonstrated in the first two Potters..."
Empire - Helen O'Hara (02/05/2010)

"Uma Thurman's Medusa is an endless supply of zingers..."
Movieline - Movieline Critic (02/12/2010)

Action, Comedy, and Greek Gods, Oh my

Percy Jackson is a not so average teenager with some major problems. It's not until his substitute teacher turns into a 'fury' and attacks him, claiming he stole Zeus's lighting bolt, that he finds out he's actually a Demi-God (half human, half god). Turns out his father, Poseidon, and Zeus are constantly fighting, and just recently, someone stole Zeus's lighting bolt, and because Poseidon himself can't steal another Gods stuff, that only leave Percy Jackson. But how can he prove his innocence and find out who really is the lighting thief?

Fast paced, full of action and humor at every turn, this has already become a favorite in my household. There were no slow parts, and not much was left out from the novel.

Though it is aimed more for a younger audience, it's a movie that anyone of any age can truly enjoy.

It's inevitable that this movie would be compared to Harry Potter, so of course I would have to say that I would recommend this movie to ANY Harry Potter fan.

The acting itself is Grade A, and Logan Lerman was a great choice for playing Percy Jackson. If anyone has seen any of his other work though, you would already know he's really good.

Great Adaptation of the great novel

Percy (Logan Lerman) is the son of Poseidon only he does not know it. He is living with his mother in a run down apartment and going to a school he hates that is filled with misfits and losers. All of that changes when Zuses Lightening is taken and Percy is accused of the theft. Thus begins the journey of self-discovery for Percy and those who travel with him as he sets out to find the lightening and return it to it's rightful owner.

This is a great story that is more for teens than for adults however I believe that any adult will enjoy watching this with their children.

Cast includes: Alexandra Daddario, Brandon T. Jackson, Jake Abel, Logan Lerman, Pierce Brosnan, and Sean Bean

I would get this one and enjoy the movie with your family.

If you like Harry Potter..

I Think you will like this story. I was reluctant to watch this at first. I had never heard of the books. I used to enjoy Greek Mythology when I was younger and I instantly got drawn in when I started to watch this movie. It is PG so it is not too intense for a younger viewer (I have a 9 year old who does not like creepy/scary movies; he was a little scared at a first but he said it wasn't too scary once he started watching it) but it has enough action and spooky scenes that even my teenager enjoyed. This is a great family film.

A must-see for action/adventure and Greek myth fans !

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

My only nag is that Clairisse doesn't appear whatsoever in this film and that Luke takes full credit for stealing Zeus's thunder (minor on the whole as the whole film is concerned), but this is a tremendous movie. Admittedly the books are better but honestly I adore this movie, especially Grover and his hysterical antics. Not certain if 'Sea of Monsters' is greenlit and the little errors in this first installation, but even if not, I'm simply happy seeing one of my favorite books become an epic masterpiece. Not all Percy Jackson fans will agree with me, but I enjoyed the movie anyhow.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I loved this movie the first time I watched it. I saw it on Ebay for a great price and just had to add it to my collection. It is a great story with lots of fun as well as action and comedy all rolled into an enjoyable movie.
