Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief

Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief (original title)

"A teenager discovers he's the descendant of a Greek god and sets out on an adventure to settle an on-going battle between the gods."

"When his lightning bolt is stolen, Zeus accuses Poseidon's son Percy Jackson and gives fourteen days to Poseidon to return his lightning bolt; otherwise he would initiate a war against his brother. Meanwhile the dyslexic and with ADHD teenager Percy is visiting The Museum of Metropolitan of Art and is attacked by a Fury disguised in his teacher. His crippled best friend Grover reveals that Percy is a demigod and he is his protector and his teacher Mr. Brunner gives a pen to him telling that it is a powerful weapon. They go to Percy's house and together with his mother Sally, they drive to the Camp Half-Blood. However Sally is attacked by a Minotaur and vanishes before Percy can help her. In the camp, Percy befriends the gorgeous Annabeth; when they are attacked by Hades who wants the lighting bolt for him, Percy discovers that his mother is in Hell with Hades. Percy decides to travel in a dangerous quest to retrieve the lightning bolt and save his mother..."

I'd been looking forward to this movie... I'd heard it was really good. It didn't disappoint me... It was a fantastic movie! I recommend this movie to anyone who hasn't seen it yet... Especially if you have even a fleeting interest in Greek mythology!

Ok, so good to hear, because I suspect my boys would love it, but they keep turning their noses up at it. It's our next rental! Thank you!

I'm glad those of you who have seen itt enjoyed it too, and hope those who haven't seen it enjoy it when they do.

Iggy:
Yeah... There can't be many more movies I haven't seen left (well, the types I would watch, I mean). Still, that just means I get to watch my favourite ones again! ;)
