This was a fairly decent movie, especially for younger viewers. The CG was good, the cast was decent and the dialogue was funny at most times, the only complaints I have are obvious. When you try to cram the rich history of Greek Mythology into a 2 hour movie, and than try and say, this is the Son of Hermes, or this is the daughter of Athena, and than show a whole camp of kids resembling the lost boys in Hook flipping around and doing some weak sword fighting with wooden swords, and they are all the sons and daughters of random gods; this just totally killed any seriousness or expectancy of a good story. It wasn't anymore than I expected out of it, so taking that in mind, it wasn't such a bad thing.
