“Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief” Movie Review

3-Watertowers ForCarol.com Movie Reviews(Demi-Gods & Monsters)

Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman) loves the water and hates school.  He has recently transferred to a new school where his mother (Catherine Keener) hopes he will blossom.

One day a substitute teacher is assigned to their class and they head out to a Museum tour.  There, Mr. Brunner (Pierce Brosnan) and Grover save Percy from a flying demon (the substitute teacher) demanding the stolen lightning bolt (it was taken from Zeus (Sean Bean, with his head intact)).  WTF?

This is when Percy finds out he is special. A demi-God: The offspring of his human mother and Poseidon (Kevin McKidd). THAT explains his love of water.

Zeus threatens Poseidon with war if Percy does not return the lightning bolt within 10 days.  Only problem is….Percy did not take it.

The race is on to find the lightning bolt and save the world from destruction. But first Percy needs to be trained, so off to Demi-God training camp for him!  There he meets beautiful and powerful Anabeth (Alexandra Daddario) the daughter of Athena (the beautiful Melina Kanakaredes).

Do they save the world?

“Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief” is a fun movie good for the whole family. Fantastic special effects.  It is based on the Percy Jackson series of books by Rick Riordan.

Go to IMDb for more information.  We watched this on VUDU.
