Movie-Percy Jackson & the Olympians:The Lightning Thief (2010)


 

Starring: Logan Lerman, Uma Thurman, Pierce Brosnan, Sean Bean
Director: Chris Columbus
Screenwriter: Chris Columbus, Craig Titley
Studio: Fox 2000 Pictures

Plot : 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.

As a boy I loved to read up on Greek Mythology, as I was facinated with the great adventures and stories told about the Greek Gods, the Demi-Gods their off-spring and the intriguing creatures woven into the body of myths and legends!  So while it is a treat to see quite a fair bit of them in this modern tale with some great CGI, I cannot help but feel a little disappointed with the plot and overall feel of the movie.  Too Harry Potterish for my liking….

That being said… for those who haven’t a clue about Greek Mythology, then this film would be rather interesting and may even be a whole lot of fun for you!  

Oh! and take note that there is 20 sec or so clip midway during the scrolling of the credits so sit and back relax till that ends!  ( Meant to be funny but a little too predictable for me )

Just hope the ‘NEW’ Clash of The Titans is not yet another modernised version! ARRGH!
