Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

From the same creators of Harry Potter, Percy Jackson is a normal high school student until he is accused of stealing Zeus' lightning. He then discovers his origins and a whole new world in order to find the lightning thief and his mom who was captured by Hades. Watch the trailer here.

Director: Chris Colombus
Genre: Adventure, Fantasy

In my opinion this is a great movie. It has good effects and it reminds me of different movies together, X-Men, Harry Potter, and Narnia. It's mythology theme is also a great one that many enjoy and makes it entertaining and at the same time educational. It is a fascinating movie with a lot of action and surprises and is recommended for all ages. I was not expecting this movie to be as good as it is and I was caught by surprise. I expect the continuation and the creation of a second movie that'll be as good as this one.

This is too similar to other online sites (http://www.imdb.com/news/ni1452661/). Make sure that you use your own words. It's better if you can discuss the movie without looking at outside sources. Most people will have seen a trailer and won't need a summary of the movie.

Instead of summarizing, explain what YOU think about the film. What were the best or worst parts? Was it what you expected? Is it similar to any other movies you've seen? Were there any quotes from the movie that you loved? What about the setting? The soundtrack? What kind of people will enjoy this film?

Let me know if you want to rewrite this for credit.
