Overall, a solid movie - depending on your expectations. It's pretty much the same kinda movie as the original so you will either love that or late that.
Really, the only thing that bothered me was Ted's daughter. It was almost like she was mocking them. Very annoying. The other girl was fine. The all-talking-simultaneously got old after awhile too. Fun ride, though.
It's about what you'd expect: you've seen it a million times. Boy learns their magical (or in this case god-like), sees girl he likes, she plays tough (in the end they are a couple), add a sidekick, go on an adventure where they get it done just-in-time and the world is saved. Wow... gee. Never seen that before. Did I spoil it for you?
Unless you are about 10 or under or have some special desire to relate to Percy, it'll be forgettable. Heck, I'll probably forget in a few years that I even watched it and maybe I already have. But, might as well watch the sequel now too...
I might be in the minority, but the 2000 Angels was one of my favorite movies. This one is... fine. Was there potential there? Maybe. Honestly, the post-initial-credits part was actually decent (for those few minutes) and the best part of the whole movie. The rest is just... not great. I doubt there will be many people wanting to watch it a second time. Forgettable and a remake that no one asked for. Honestly, it deserved its fate as a box office failure. If you aren't going to make something awesome, why bother?
Decent with some unique ideas, but honestly not enough of a complete story with a lot of useless fluff. [Spoiler alert] It's a cult and they get drugged and die. Add in a bunch of creepiness and extra info, but really doesn't give you any satisfying "a ha!" moments. In the end, the girl smiles and I guess that means she is part of the cult. How did she get to that point? Who knows. Was it the fact that she let her cheating, drugged boyfriend cook in a fire? I guess. One of the characters broke the rules and took pictures of the sacred book. Did that matter? No, he was going to die anyway. Another character peed on the holy tree. Did that matter? Nope. Do we know why the main character's sister went crazy and killed her parents? No clue: I kept waiting for it to come and explain it, but it's just there as another "random" thing. Are you surprised that this place is a cult? No. Are you surprised that the characters are drugged? No. Did the first 30 minutes of the film matter one bit? No, other than just to stress that the one guy (who again, was going to die no matter what anyway) was a bad boyfriend. Half the movie was basically stating that. We. get. it. I mean, there are a few cool scenes, but nothing that really settles in. You could see the 2 suicides from a mile away and it took forever to get there.
So, it's worth it for a free or 99 cent rental, but isn't worth hyped up otherwise. It doesn't have that genius factor of a Saw or Cabin in the Woods. No way you'd bother to watch it again. Not enough there: 30 mins of actual watchable video with almost 2 hours of fluff.
I'm not a HUGE Batman fan, but I've certainly experienced a lot of Batman over the years in TV, Movies and Video Games and this... just... sucks. Everything about this is bad: voices are wrong, writing is wrong, plot is wrong. I'd expect this for a thrown-together 80's/90's cartoon, but this is just unacceptable today and in movie form.
So many amazing interpretations with Christopher Nolan, the Telltale games, the Arkham games, even his appearance in Injustice and Injustice 2 that this is just insulting.
