5.0 out of 5 stars Percy hits the Big Screen July 18 2010
By Frances L. Arsenault TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Family night. July 11 2010
Format:DVD
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!

I'm truly surprised at how many have rated this movie as marginal to bad because it's not Harry Potter! Of course it's not! It never purported to be! Trying to compare it to another movie only renders a biased review based not on what it is -- but what it isn't.
So if you're truly wondering what this movie is like and are looking to the reviews, forget anyone that even mentions Harry Potter (except this one of course!)

I found it a fresh, interesting movie using an age-old theme. It has the Chris Columbus touch, which means it's good. The cast is star-studded; the FX are good without being overpowering; the story fresh, original and engaging even if the older characters are familiar to anyone who has studied Greek Lore.
The acting is totally believable. Some good young talent there.
Is it perfect? No.
What movie is? One can find flaws if that is what one focuses on. But if it's main bad point is that it's not a glaring copy of another movie -- well that's a good point!

It is enjoyable and engaging.

3.0 out of 5 stars An average movie aimed at teens! Sept. 28 2013
By John Thomas Anderson TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief is another one of those movies that back in my day would have been the perfect Saturday afternoon flick. Lots of action, reasonably good acting and a ridiculous plot. In other words, your typical Hollywood B movie!

The plot for whatever it matters, revolves around a young boy suddenly discovering that he's the son of Poseidon and a demi-god. That's the good news! Unfortunately, he's being blamed for the theft of Zeus's lightning bolt and a lot of sundry monsters are out to git em! What follows is two hours of trying to prove his innocense with the aid of a half goat, half boy and of course, the obligatory demi-god eventual girl friend. That's basically the gist of the plot.

Like any typical B movie, it's not that bad but it could have been much much better. There's some really awsome acting talent among the Gods, but it's mostly completely wasted on a ridiculous plot and very little screen time. The sort of job actors do when they're between doing real movies!

Anyways, the Bluray of this movie is a 2.35:1 widescreen with an English DTS-HD 5.1 audio track and Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks in French, Spanish and Portuguese. The DTS track sounds great.

The dvd of this movie has a Dolby Digital 5.1 track with Dolby Pro-logic surround tracks in French and Spanish. (No Portuguese)

If you have anybody in the family who has the book, then you'll probably want to get this. But otherwise, there's a lot of better action fantasy movies out there so you may want to wait until it ends up in the bargin bin.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average movie, nothing spectacular
Not having read the books, my opinion of just the movie is that it is a good teen-flick, pure fluff - lots of plot holes that you can overlook if you don't think too hard.
