Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Theif Review

It actually was not at all as bad as I thought it would be. It had amazing sets, such as mount olympus and the underworld. Of course, the casting was a little off but according to the internet, this was because the film makers wanted this movie series to be as different from Harry Potter as possible, and also to attract a larger audience.
I am a big fan of the series this movie was based on and some parts can be upsetting.
They took out some large contributors of the book and replaced them with other scenes, but I liked how it turned out in the end.
Note: if you have not read the book, this movie can be hard to keep up with at the beginning. It's very fast paced.
If your going to see this movie for your spare time and just for pleasure, you'll like it, if your a big fan of the series, I have no way of telling. I am and I loved the movie, but my sister despised it.
(warning, there can be some scary parts and this film was almost rated PG-13)
