I had read the original series, and I love it...I would choose both Percy and Harry Potter, for my top 10 fantasy series.

I had wanted to see the movie when it was in theaters, but it went out, so I'd waited 'til it came out on DVD. I'd watched it and I thought it was really awesome; I did not like some of the negativity on it. The film (as you all know), is about teenage Percy Jackson who seem to be an ordinary teen; until after a monster attack at the museum (a Fury disguised in his English teacher), he found out he is a son of the sea god Poseidon. And have been accused of stealing Zeus' master lightning bolt, he finds himself caught between angry and battling gods, he and his friends embark on a cross-country adventure to catch the true lightning thief, save his mom, and unravel a mystery more powerful than the gods themselves.

So anyway I really love this film; even if there were changes to the characters.

This was a fantastic movie for a family night. My daughter loves it (7)- though there were some mildly scary parts, so I wouldn't go much younger than that.
The SFX were pretty good, the plot line was funny and touching. It touched on an interesting part of being both a teenager- and a parent. Rebellion and Protection, and the tensions that exist between the two.
My only complaint would be that after watching the deleted scenes, I wish they would have left them in!
Can't complain overly much about the acting involved. It won't win any academy awards, I don't think, but it is certainly at the level in which it was intended- simple family fun.
As always, I strive not to give anything away, but my review? Order a pizza, grab a bag of chips, and settle the family in for a good night at home!

Percy Jackson and the Olympians(released Feb/10) brings back the Greek God motif to the big screen and in the process reminds this reviewer of how much I miss the magic of Ray Harryhausens work.Ray's movies included many of the monsters/characters seen here like the Medusa,The Hydra,Poseidan and many others.However here in 2010 its all CGI and I must say I was impressed with the work done.However the weak plot is what brings this film down and no matter the amount of S/FX,they can't make it rise above itself.
The plot finds The Greek God Zeus meeting with the God Poseidan atop the Empire State Building.Old Zeus is in an uproar because his infamous lightning bolt has gone missing and he is accusing Poseidans son Percy Jackson of stealing it.Zeus gives Poseidan a short time to retrieve it or there will be war.
Percy is just your average high school student,kind of shy and withdrawn.His main friend is on crutches and he has no idea who or what he really is.On a class excursion to a museum his teacher gets him alone,turns into a harpe like creature and wants the lightning.He is scared stiff and has no idea what it wants or why and it flees after his friend reveals himself to be his protector.He runs home to Mom and together all three head for a camp for half bloods(half humans ,half Gods that no mortals can enter).On the way his mother is seemingly killed by a rather large Centaur,who in turn is killed by Percy.In the camp the truth comes out and Percy now knows that he is the half son of the God Poseidan,with all the powers that come with a demi God.His friend is actually a Satyr,half man and half goat.He also becomes friends with the daughter of the Goddess Athena and the son of Hermes.

I'm a pretty enthusiastic fan of the five Percy Jackson books, and had high hopes for this movie, but I honestly wasn't very impressed. For a rating, I'd actually like to give it about a 2.5 stars out of five.

The actor they chose for Percy Jackson is older than I remember the character being, and he makes too many teenaged "I'm too cool for this, don't hassle me" facial expressions - especially when I didn't get that "teenager with a chip on his shoulder" impression at all from the books. Another quirk is that they seem to have merged two female characters from the book to make the Annabeth character in the movie. In the book there is the tough warrior girl Clarisse, and then the smart and wise Annabeth character - and in the movie they have merged these two characters together.

The quest in the movie gets really watered down, and you quickly lose interest in what the characters are meant to be trying to do. So instead of being hooked and drawn along by the plot, it just becomes a slow stream of monsters and fights. By the time the three main characters are in hell talking to Hades, your brain has completely turned off and you're flipping through whatever magazine you have in the living room as you watch the movie.

Looks like Zeus (Sean Bean) has had his lightning bolt, which is his sign of authority, pilfered. He suspects Poor pitiful Percy (Logan Lerman.) Percy who never suspected that he is the son of Poseidon (Kevin McKidd) must pass trials and tribulations including going to Hadês. On the way, he makes new friends as Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario) the Daughter of Gray Eyed Athena. He also comes across many perils such as a medusa (Uma Thurman) that makes you want to look.

I have to confess that I have not read the books or anything relevant about the books before seeing the movie. Of course, with few exceptions movies cannot be the book; movies are usually a pale reflection. Yet some times, they can exceed the books. In this case, I cannot judge. However, I would want to have the movie if only the title matched.

Not comparing to the books the movie is still just a mediocre teen coming of age movie. Percy is reborn by trial of fire. Now what will he do in the next movie?

I only saw the Blu-ray version so I cannot compare.
