Trouble-prone teen Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of 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 return Zeus' stolen property and unravel a mystery more powerful than the gods themselves.
Worlds Collide. Accident prone teenager, Percy discovers he's actually a demi-God, the son of Poseidon, and he is needed when Zeus' lightning is stolen. Percy must master his new found skills in order to prevent a war between the Gods that could devastate the entire world.. Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief Wiki
This was a good movie the book was awesome as well
this is nothing like the book! the characters didn't look like how the books described them, the actors were just. plain. terrible, Ares wasn't included in the movie, and what happened to the Camp Half-Blood shirts? I recommend that you remake this trash that doesn't deserve being called a "movie". Thanks for reading sincerely a Percy Jackson kid fanatic P.S: read the book!
Everything in this was trash. I hate this. It’s a disgrace. If you even had the smallest, faintest sliver of an interest in seeing this movie, end it right now. Destroy it. Crush it. Obliterate it into nothingness. Ignore the positive reviews. No one in their right mind could think this movie is good. I cried it was so trash. Don’t waste your life seeing this garbage. I cannot even express my disgust towards this movie. I wish I could rate it negative stars.
Unwatchable performance by the lead. Like a black hole for everything else. I assume it's the actor, but casting and the director share the blame.
This is nothing like the books at all, it didn’t follow the book, they took parts out and added things that where never in the book, this is horrible
The first Percy Jackson movie was really good
I love this movie 🙂but the book is so much better !I wish they would of put the books parts in the movie 🙁 but still love ❤️
I liked this movie because it talks about Greek mythology in a way that is not boring like documentaries. I noticed many key differences between the movie and the book.
If you've read the books it is the worst possible movie. It is nothing like the book. From The look of some characters to the parts they miss.
It’s a great movie!
I think that there should be a Percy Jackson 3 because the two first films were so interesting and inspired me to take a class on grec mythology. I was so disappointed when I here'd that there was not going to be a Percy Jackson 3 . But all and all I loved the two first movies. Chance Quenneville
The movie was great on its own but I feel like it had so much more potential! If they had stuck to the books plot and actually made the characters look and act like they did in the books, then I would be 100% satisfied. The entire fandom had been waiting for this movie and a lot of us were let down. The second movie isn't much better. It's almost as if they took the characters and title and didn't even read the book before making the film. And they missed out on a great opportunity to make this an amazing movie series. There are 10 books! Can you imagine how much they could have made off of this if they had just stuck to the plot?
OMG I love this movie, the series of books and the sea of monsters but what I really like is the lightening theif trailer
the movie was good but the book was sooooo much better. the movie doesn't exactly follow the plot line of the story and their is a lot more details in the books that they don't put in the movie
The move is awesome i git it 5 stras
Love this movie! It's not the exact same thing as the book but the action is there, the actors play their characters very well. I really loved it!
I hated the movie. It barely followed the proper story line from the book, added completely new scenes, and left out major characters.
Read the books But if they make the HoO they need to put something in these movies so the make sense
It is so awesome!!!
I loved the movies. I got them for my birthday and they were great. I'd read lots of reviews on Pinterest that they weren't like the books.... but they're actually really awesome! After saying that though I recommend reading the books as well or preferably first. There were just little details from the book that could have made it even better though😉. Please make more movies👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
Great movie though in not the same as the book. if you havent read the book the movie is awesome!
Terrible. IS THAT A HYDRA IN THE TRAILER??? There was NEVER a HYDRA in the first book! Also, what's with the age? They're supposed to be TWELVE. Annabeth's line to Percy: I definitely have strong feelings for you. I just don't know if they're positive or negative yet' NEVER HAPPENED. Save your money, go and buy the books. They're far better. People who give this high ratings HAVE NOT read the books.
I thought it was a bit weird how the movie was different from the book I suggest reading the book first
I read the book then watched the movie. The is sooooo much that's in the book that's not in the movie. What happened to the fight with ares!? It's still a great movie though. If you love action, adventure and mystery, it's the movie for you
I loved the movie but its almost like a different series because well its different. But it's good
I hope in the second movie (August 2013, The Sea of Monsters) that they stick a little more to the story line. I've read all of the books (Including the Mark of Athena) and I know I would and many other fans would like to see the next movie stick to the story line. Great movie though seen it a bijillion times!
This movie was different from the book a lot different 1.) Annabeth is blonde and curly and has grey eyes 2.)his sword is meant to be uncapped not clicked 3.)Kronos isn't in it 4.)No fight with ares at the end 5.)No Clarisse in it weir cause she is meant to be one of the main characters 6.)He didn't know Poisiden was his father Poisiden claimed him And the list keeps going although if you take away the book it's a good baselin and an enjoyable movie
I have read all the books and the film is totally different. If you have read the book please don't see the film. I hope it wasn't rick riordan ( the author ) who directed it. Blah
I really enjoyed it, yes it was different from the book, a bit sad, but I still good! The actors were great, it was funny and well directed. I hope they make the rest!
Ive read all the books so this was kinda disapointing cuz it was nothing like the books. But i still think its good cuz i just like LOVE percy jackson books
THIS IS NOTHIN LIKE THE BOOK U @££[email protected]£!&'s at 20th Century Fox wen u gona get it, it FAILS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This movie is as spellbinding, enthralling, mesmerising and magnificent as even The Golden Compass and also Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Me and my friends watched this in the cinema and loved it Grover was so funny and this movie is diffinetly 5stars but Chris Columbus could have directed it better! Some movies aren't popular enough to make another one but this one will go all the way through and on the web it says this movie made alot of many millions! But get a David Yates for the next movie Percy Jackson and the Sea Of Monsters! Gonna be far better and the Newspapers will deffinetly give that one 5stars because David Yates is brilliant( Made 5th, 6th and 7th part 1 and part2 film of Harry Potter)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I LOVE this film and think it is one of my favourites. I think it is action packed and great for the family! There definitely should be sequels like the book because I have read them and they seem great! I'm glad I watched the film first as I would be disappointed because there is a lot more description in the book and I think Rick Riordan is a fab writer. Overall this film is Fab and I love it! Buy now! :)
The books are WAY better so I found the movie really disappointing!!!!! :(
Great film but I don't get why you can't buy it because at the minute it's only rent it
Thumbs up!! I love this movie they should seriously make the sequel to it.
Enjoyed it,although if you've read the books you will probably find it a bit disappointing,still....not bad
Its a waste of money, Just read the bookd. if your to lasy to read then get a life...
This movie is amazing! The graphics are very awesome and are suprisingly convincing and realistic! I know that everybody thinks that the books are better and that the movie left out alot of bits but the movie is really good and action-thrilling! im reading the books right now and they did leave out SOOO much... but it's superb and you should watch it!
This movie was rubbish. To be honest, if I hadn't read all the books, I would have thought it to be OKAY. But not an excellent movie as it should have been due to Rick Riordan's efforts to make such an excellent series. This was such a disappointment and it was so different from the book. The actors weren't so bad, but they should have Annabeth blonde, so she fits the character description. They make Percy into an extremely good fighter straight away. They make Percy beat Luke when it should be the other way round. To be honest, I hated Percy because he was just so ego in the movie, and I found it annoying. Percy is suppose to be unsure of himself, and not so conceited. All and all, disappointing movie. Not worth your time looking at. If you want to watch the movie despite this, then I suggest you just watch it online instead of spending any money.
Absolutely loved Percy Jackson & the lightning thief! It was awesome, I could watch is over and over again!!!!!!!! :)
I LOVED it but I found it extremely similar to Harry Potter. RECOMMEND TO ALL!
Look if you have read the Percy Jackson books youre going think this is terrible, if you haven't you will probaly love it, its as simple as that.
This movie is way differnet from the books and in my opinion the books are like 10 times better, hey that is just my opinion but if you have read the books before you saw the movie you would probably know what I am talking about.
Complete remake of Harry potter
This is supurb. I loved it. I watch it over and over and never get bored of it. I recommend to all ! ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC.
i enjoyed the film but liked the books better don't understand why people get so upset over films based on book cause films have less budget and have short time frames to fill in. books are ment to be more detailed due to no pictures to describe whats happening and so forth.
