They left out so many details and missing very important characters. I have read through the whole series several times and I loved the books and then I watched the movie it was such a disappointment.

I love all the books and I think bringing it to theatre is just like bringing my imagination to life. I've read the whole series and I think it's awsome. I loved the movie!

Action movies of this scale often start off strong and wind down to forgettable finales, but "Percy Jackson" is the opposite, overcoming a clunky setup to deliver nearly all its thrills in the last half-hour. Full Review

Has all the CGI sorcery of a Harry Potter pic, but none of the magic. Full Review

A whole lot of plot ensues - an entertaining mix of buddy movie, road trip, "Clash of the Titans," archetypal quest and a coming-of-age tale about misfits making their way despite, or because of, absent parents. Full Review

Percy Jackson isn't a great movie, but it's a good one, trotting out kernels of Greek mythology like so many Disney Channel references. For the most part, it works. Full Review

The Lightning Thief is loud, scary, oversexed, and really unfun. All that would have been fine if my daughter liked it, but instead it left her and her friend stunned. Full Review
