This movie doesn't follow anything that happened in the books. Annabeth doesn't even look like suggested in the book! Read the book, then look at how it doesn't even follow the storyline! Take my advice, and skip it.

Pretty fun fantasy/adventure. An enjoyable mix of Harry Potter and Clash of the Titans. You don't see much Greek mythology in these types of movies, so that was refreshing.

Action packed and brilliant CGI

A fairly standard cheesy YA fantasy story, elevated above the average for those stories by being a pretty enjoyable modernization of those most awesome of things, the Greek heroic epics. Better than I expected it'd be.

Anyone who likes this movie is my enemy. If you are a hard and true Percy Jackson fan like me, this shoe makes you sick. Annabeths hair is supposed to be blond, and just by the way, they are supposed to be twelve years old. There is no way that they even look twelve in This movie. The plot is so far fetched, compared to the true story. If you didn't ever read the books, it's a good movie, I guess, but books are ALWAYS better than the movies.

i'm a huge fan of the percy jackson books and this movie is disrespectful to their good name. the director too the book ripped out all the insides and stole the title, the movie is nothing like the book. the movie was okay if you didn't call it percy jackson, its an okay stand alone movie, but calling it percy jackson and tricking fans of the books to watch it is just wrong.

So glad I watched this before reading the book. If I hadn't I never would have been able to sit through it.

Fun and refreshingly short, The Lightning Thief is filled with good action, strong acting, and Greek mythology fun. Unfortunately, it's unfaithful to the source material in almost every way. Changes like a main character having a different hair color, everyone being much older than they should be, and significant changes to the plot all prevent the film from being anything more than mediocre.

I forgot this movie....

A complete disappointment for die-hard fans of the book series. This is more like a fanfiction or ripoff compared to the rich and never-boring storyline of the original. Aside from that the film messed up significant aspects, such as adding the Pearls and the Lotus people, it is horrifying that a film can be so 'forgetful' to even missed the obvious previously-stated facts that our heroine Annabeth is blonde, and Grover the satyr is white. To be frank, if someone ask me if this film is good, I will reply, 'Everything is wrong with this, please go read the books first.'

Awful version of one of my favourite books.

This movie is nothing like the amazing books... VERY disappointed... Don't think the director even read the books before casting the movie -- just read a summary. If you are a percy jackson fan, DO NOT WATCH. Very disappointed.
