Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief – 2010

IMDB: Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief – 2010

IMDB Rating: 5.9/10

Rotten Tomatoes: 49%

When the otherwise boring loser Percy Jackson gets set upon by a fury who happens to be wearing the skin of his substitute english teacher Mrs Dodds, up until she wildly attacks him at the museum.

When his best friend and one of his teachers rescue him his entire world changes. He discovers that he is being framed for having stolen Zeus’ master bolt (better his bolt than his bait). He discovers that he is in fact the son of Poseidon, he is a demigod.

When in the escape from the city Percy’s mum gets killed by a minotaur, he begins to make his way to the Underworld to make a deal with Hades for her release, and then everything goes sidewards.

So have you seen the names in this cast? It’s like a who’s who of hotness on both sides of the fence (where we look at it on a 2 sided gender fence – do we actually have any major non-associating m/f gender stars?).

Aaaand, not just that, but this must be the only film in which Sean Bean does not get killed off!!!

But all that aside, this movie is just very flat. The story is both clear and obvious, the acting expected, the soundtrack bearable. The main thing that lifts this movie above average, is the graphics. The CGI in this film lifts it above the base average.
