"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 (Movie Overview: Fandango)."
There is no doubt it is an adventure and action packed movie just like Harry Potter. The movie plot is simple, interesting, hilarious and most importantly easy to understand. The film is more US style as compared to UK style Harry Potter. The special effects were great. The male lead “Logan Lerman” is handsome and definitely has potential in his future career. In the movie, those creatures were not surprising as we had seen a lot of the similar kind in other adventure movies. Besides the centaur (half human half horse) played by Pierce Brosnan, the special ability of Medusa with snake hair (played by Uma Thurman) impressed me as it can turn thing to stone. Of coarse some parts of the movie were fun and full of excitement. It’s entertaining throughout the entire movie. The film is suitable for all ages and my overall movie rating is 3/5.
