“Percy Jackson & the Olympians: the Lightning Thief” came out this month at the movie theaters. I went to see this movie on the weekend it came out.
I thought the movie was an ok movie, yet there was not a lot of money put into it. The plot seemed very good. Percy Jackson is the son of the god Poseidon, who controls the seas.
When Zeus’ lightning bolt is stolen, Percy is the main suspect. When he finds out about his father, he is confused. After a while he goes on a mission with two of his friends to workout this problem.
The actor’s roles seemed to match the characters. The acting was ok for this type of movie.
Even though this movie is based off the popular book series, I cannot compare the two. I have not yet had a chance to read this book. Although some say that it did not stick with the storyline from the book.
If you are looking for a movie to just go and see, I suggest this movie.
