Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief-A Movie Review

18 Aug

 So sorry, WordPress was wacky, and published my post before I was ready! Sorry!

Percy Jackson and the Lightning TheifSummary-When teenager Percy Jackson discovers he is the son of the Greek God Poseidon, he is whisked away to a secret camp for demigods where he learns that if he doesn’t return Zeus’s powerful lightning bolt, (which, by the way; he doesn’t have), there will be a war between the gods that will threaten the world. Along with his friends, Annabeth and Grover, he must save his kidnapped mother and find the lightning bolt before the universe as we know it is destroyed.

My Thoughts: When I learned that the second Percy Jackson Movie was coming out, I decided it was time to finally finish the first movie. (Which I enjoyed this morning!) It was a fast paced, action-packed movie with an entertaining plot and good acting that kept you interested the whole time. The acting was great in this movie, and I thought that the characters were very detailed or entertaining in their own way. Annabeth was my favorite of all, (but Grover was still pretty funny too), and I thought that the actors added to the overall film. Also, the different settings and effects were pretty cool, and made this a refreshing and unique movie.  (It was pretty ironic how Medusa had a gardening business that sold stone statues, and the sirens worked at a casino that doesn’t ever let you leave because they lore the people in.) Anyways, after seeing the full movie, I’m definitely going to try out the books, and I’m really looking forward to seeing the second film. Overall, I give this movie four out of five stars.

Sorry for the mess up, and short review today, but I would love to know if you saw this movie, or have read the books!
