Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief

Synopsis: It's the 21st century, but the gods of Mount Olympus and assorted monsters have walked out of the pages of high school student Percy Jackson'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. Even more troubling is the sudden disappearance of Percy's mother. As Percy finds himself caught between angry and battling gods, he and his friends embark on a cross-country adventure to catch the true lightning thief, save Percy's mom, and unravel a mystery more powerful than the gods themselves


Comments: I enjoyed the movie thoroughly, although I must say, nothing still beats Harry Potter in terms of this genre. I haven't read the book yet, but seeing the movie makes me want to.

I liked Uma Thurman as Medusa. Especially when her head was cut off. Also, I find Annabeth pretty.

My friends and I had a laugh though, when we found out that Hades' Underworld is in Hollywood, and that Zeus' Mt. Olympus is in the Empire State Building.

Nice effects. All in all, it was an entertaining movie.
