Clunky, flat fantasy epic

“"You stole the lightning bolt!"

Consisting of five main volumes and three supplemental books, Rick Riordan's popular Percy Jackson series must have been an easy sell for any studio. It contains heroes, villains, monsters, wish fulfilment, and epic feats of magic and courage while also tackling popular Greek mythology. Topping this off, the whole package is reminiscent of Harry Potter. Yet, even with all this in place, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief comes across as slapdash, rushed, unsatisfying and lifeless. While boldly produced, this is a clunky epic which utterly squanders a terrific supporting cast, and is marred by frequently flat dialogue and glaring plot idiocies.

Porquê não (40 movies items)

"O filme é um dejavu constante, do tipo 'já vi essa cena, já vi esses persoganes, já vi isso, já vi aquilo'. E, mesmo fazendo uma mistura de vários filmes, não consegue ser bom. Simplesmente não é 'atrativo' e sim, chato. NOTA FINAL: Não."

Percy Jackson e gli Dei dell'Olimpo: il ladro...

“Fare un film per ragazzi non significa fare un film piatto e banale. Qualcuno lo spieghi a Chris Columbus o forse a Rick Riordan (anche se non ho letto il libro) giacché Columbus con i primi due Harry Potter aveva dimostrato che con una sceneggiatura all'altezza si possono fare film per ragazzi davvero ottimi.

L'idea di una lotta tra gli dei dell'Olimpo sulla Terra non è nuova in letteratura, ma avrebbe potuto essere sufficientemente originale o comunque stimolante sul grande schermo. In questo film sfiora il ridicolo. Tutto già visto, tutto scontato e tutto miseramente ridotto ai minimi termini. Mi sorprende che non l'abbiano girato in versione 3D per mascherare la mediocrità, uno sport che ultimamente a Hollywood va molto di moda.” read more

Entertainment that combines myth with modern life

“First of all, it is a film from a director who I really admire and it seemed a tad bit different from what he's done previously. I actually enjoyed it which did surprise me. I mean, I really liked how they mixed the modern day era with the Ancient Greek era featuring the mythical creatures and gods. The effects were obviously FANTASTIC especially the snakes on Medusa's head. Percy Jackson is a film that is beautifully entertaining that has its fair share of laughs and its moments of expanding imagination and witnessing mythical creatures and entering different worlds.

Logan Lerman delivers a surprisingly satisfying performance as Percy Jackson. Percy is a demi-god (which is half-god who has one immortal parent and one mortal parent). He is the son of Poseidon, the god of the sea ” read more

What is this movie?

“Umm, this is not Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. It is some weird perversion of the awesome book. First of all, and really difficult to overlook: Percy is supposed to be 12 years old. The actor who plays him is 18 and they definitely put him in high school in the movie. The way it as translated onto the screen is just plain cheesy. I like corny movies and I like kids movies, but I just couldn't stop rolling my eyes. They seemed to take themselves so seriously on screen without explaining enough to make anything believable. They expect us to care about what's happening without telling us why. Once I explained to my companions that Percy was supposed to be 12, there was a more serious and legitimate reason for Poseidon not being involved with or even claiming to be Percy's dad, there ” read more

Sneak a peek.

“''Come on... sneak a peek.''

Greek Mythology with a bit of corn

“Based on Percy Jackson & the Olympians by Rick Riodoran and Directed by Chris Columbus (Harry potter and the sorcerer's stone, Rent). Percy Jackson isn't exactly enjoying his life, his mother Sally (Catherine Keener) is hanging out with a good for nothing loser boyfriend( Joe Pantoliano) and to make things worse, Percy, is dyslexic so school isn't going well for him either. Desperate for a drastic change , Percy , is then thrown into a world full of gods from Greek mythology. Percy quickly finds out that he is the son of Poseidon(Kevin Mckidd) and is accused of stealing Zeus's(Sean Bean) lightning bolt , hence the redundant title. As the movie progresses at it's slow but very interesting pace , we meet Annabeth daughter of Athena(Melina Kanakaredes),grover (a martin Lawrence like Brandon ” read more

modern day greek a smash

“I thought that Percy Jackson and the lighting thief was a really good film as they tried to modernise the idea of the Greek Myths and they had some of the better known villains as the bad guys.

I liked most of the cast as they played their part very well as i thought Sean Bean played a very good Zeus and the main cast played their roles off perfectly, However i also enjoyed Pierce Bronson as the Centaur Chiron or Mr Brunner Percy's Latin teacher, but i liked Uma Thurman as the Medusa as i feel she played that perfectly but i wished she had longer in the film. 1 thing i didn't really like was that Steve Coogan playing the part of Hades,1 of the reasons why i didn't like it was that he known for his comedy roles so i thought he couldn't pull the part off. Another thing i didn't ” read more
