  • A diverting action fantasy that modernizes the stories of demigods and monsters. show more

  • So has "Percy Jackson" successfully cracked the "Potter" code? In terms of overall quality, not even close. Still, the film's carefully calibrated mixture of CGI-enhanced spectacle, diverting (and blood-free) action sequences and adolescent angst could make it a modest hit with the eight to 12-year-old set. show more

    The film becomes particularly risible when family matters come into play. Since the young demigods, by nature, are raised in single-parent homes, their encounters with the gods are characterized less by wonder than by the therapy-speak of wounded kids with daddy issues. show more

    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.
