Percy Jackson & the Olympians

A few weeks ago I went to see this movie. I’m still on a roll with taking my days off and coinciding with some good movies coming out. I almost forgot to post this review as I previously watched Cop Out this past Friday.

Well, as you may or may not have seen or guessed from the title and/or trailers it is man against the gods. Or rather a hybrid as it were as one parent was human and one parent was god. So we have Hades, Zeus, and Poseidon as the 3 brothers who happen to be gods. Poseidon’s son is accused of stealing Zeus’s lightening bolt and he gave a countdown on when it should be returned. Well, Percy Jackson is Poseidon’s son and he goes on this trek to ultimately save his mother who was taken by Hades and finds the lightening bolt along the way because Hermes’s son is the one who stole it.

I thought it was pretty good. I love Kevin McKidd as an actor (he played Poseidon) and only wish they had not canceled the series Journeyman. I still needs to buy that 1 series on DVD to have and watch again. I understand that some shows do not make the ratings cut but geez, why not have a vote on it.

    Glad to hear you liked the movie. I’m reading the book and had hoped to have it read before the movie came out (that didn’t happen!). I still need to go see the movie.
