IMDB THE LIGHTNING THIEF REVIEW LINK
If you take Harry Potter and Combine it with the Chronicles of Narnia, this is pretty much what you get, Percy Jackson and the Olympians. I heard on the radio that this was one of the better movies released this weekend so I looked into it. I checked out the book and thought is was really well written so the movie intrigued me. It was a great day for risks as it was also the 7th year anniversary for my wife and I. She agreed to check it out, and mind you this was only a small part of a long wonderful day we spent together. She even bought me some of the books to read, but then I took them back after seeing this movie. Why? Well, it's to young for me, but the writer, Rick Riordan, is a great one. Great style. Okay, so here is what I didn't like. The teenage stars in this didn't make much of an impression and the story was pretty much carried by cameo's of bigger stars I am tired of seeing. In truth, I think this is a good family movie and those are few and far between. Me, I got bored and found it predictable, pretty much like the previews showed. I will say stay home unless you have some kids and then it's a good family flick. It's 6.2 out of 10 for a fantasy, but I do recommend you rent it. I AM PUMPED FOR CLASH OF THE TITANS THOUGH!
