2 hours 2 minutes




If you enjoy the Harry Potter, Narnia, or Lord Of The Rings series', then get ready because Percy Jackson is coming your way. This movie was very entertaining, very funny, and mostly just very FUN. I especially admire Brandon T. Jackson's portrayal of Grover, Percy's best friend. He was probably the BEST part of the entire film because he made every scene he was in funny and charming. I also enjoyed the strong, all star supporting cast including Pierce Brosnan (James Bond), Uma Thurman (My Super Ex Girlfriend), Steve Coogan (Night At The Museum), and so many others that make this film great. Although, if your planning to take the younger kids to see this movie, it's not appropriate for them due to its mythical and scary creatures, sexual content, and its storyline. Also, if your a big fan of the book series, you might be shocked and disappointed to see that they cut out some major parts of the book like (SPOILER) Ares, Seattle, and many other key parts of the book. But anyway, this is a fun film that the whole family will enjoy, plus have some adult humor in it. Oh by the way, if you do see this movie, stay after the credits for a little surprise you'll enjoy. And also, I think Chris Columbus, whose directed such films like Home Alone, Mrs. Doubtfire, and the first two Harry Potter films did a great job at showing us his vison of Percy Jackson's world. I surely can't wait for the sequels to come for the series. I will surely be buying this on iTunes and/or Blu-Ray when it comes out, since this movie is indeed a theater or high definition experience. I can surely tell you that people won't be disappointed by this film. So what I'm saying is, go and see Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lighning Thief. It's worth the money and popcorn, believe me.

SYNOPSIS (taken from

Trouble-prone teen Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out school -- but that's the least of his problems. The gods of Mount Olympus and assorted monsters seem to have walked out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology texts and into his life and they're not happy. Zeus' lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Now, Percy and his friends must embark on a cross-country adventure to catch the true thief, save Percy's family, and unravel a mystery more powerful than the gods themselves.

Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
