      Don't watch this if you expect it to be like the real book. It's great and the graphics are as well, so you'd want to watch it. However, it has about 100 things wrong (that's not a hyperbole) and doesn't follow the plot anyways. So if you want to watch it expecting it to be similar to the book, please don't.

        To all Percy Jackson lovers and fans! The movie is not exactly like the book but that happens to nearly every book and movie, right? I finished it and is about to watch Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters. I really hope it’s as exciting as the book!

            This movie is very fun. It was based off the real book in Percy Jackson. I recommend this movie very much.

                Hi! I'm going to be writing a review on the Movie Percy Jackson & the Olympians: the lightning Thief. So I thought That this movie it self was pretty good but when you compare it to the book there are so many differences, Like the way Annabeth looks and in the movie they made the characters a lot older then in the book. There where just A lot a things that were not the same. But other then that is was a fine movie that's why I'm giving it 3 popcorn

                  I liked this movie, but it was TOTALLY different from the actual Percy Jackson book. For example, the people look different from how they were described in the book, and Percy and Annabeth have extra weapons. The movie is nothing like the books, which is why I would give this 3/5 popcorn.

                    Percy Jackson is no ordinary teenager he's just learned he's the son of Poseidon and is accused of stealing Zeus lightning bolt the most powerful weapon ever created When storm clouds brewing Percy embarks on an incredible cross country journey to prove his innocence recover the bolt and prevent a war amongst the God's that could destroy our world! But it's not the same as the book

                      I was very excited when they added this movie to Disney Plus. Rick Riordan is one of my fav authors, so I had really high hopes. But, the storyline as well as details that only true fans would catch, we’re wayyyy out of line, compared to the books. Issue 1. In the books, long story short, is that this kid discovers he’s a child of the Greek god, Poseidon. He was framed for stealing Zeus’s master bolt, and he has to travel across the world to save his mom from a prison in the Underworld. At one point in the book, the main character comes across a naiad, a water spirit, and she gives him 3 pearls that will teleport him and his friends out of the underworld. This happened after he fell off the St.Louis Arch. In the movie their whole quest was set around finding the pearls at locations like Auntie Um’s Garden Gnome Emporium, and the Lotus Hotel and Casino, where they did travel to in the book, but not for the same reason. Issue 2. In the books, Annabeth has one weapon- her Celestial Bronze dagger given to her by Luke when she was a kid. In the movie, I lost count of how many different weapons she seemed to have just pulled out of her pocket. In the earlier scenes, she’s pictured with a sword and shield. In later scenes she’s shown with both a regular bow and arrow, as well as a crossbow. And then at the end of the movie, she has her dagger!! I don’t understand!! Anyway, yea. Don’t go in thinking, “Oh this is going to be a perfect representation of the book.”. I liked it as a movie, but not as a tribute to the magic (no pun intended) of Rick Riordan’s “The Lightening Thief”.
