I liked Percy Jackson & the Olympians - The Lightning Thief (what a mouthful!) because it had good special effects, good acting, and an interesting story. It was like National Treasure meets Harry Potter. I think no matter what age, if you were a fan of these two movies, you will enjoy Percy Jackson. Even though Percy Jackson might remind you of these two movies, it is no way "inspired" from them, it still feels original. Kudos to the screenplay writer, Craig Titley for a good adapted screenplay and director, Chris Columbus, for a making an enjoyable movie for all ages. I think Logan Lerman deserves a special mention because he is not only cute but also acts well. So good job, Logan! This film proves that sometimes if you have low expectations, it can lead to you being pleasantly surprised.
This movie is based on the first book, The Lightning Thief, in the Percy Jackson & the Olympians 5-books' series based on Greek mythology by Rick Riordan. Wondering what the story is? Watch the trailer!
