This movie like Twilight is a book adaptation. It might not be the best movie adaptation out there, but this movie might not bother the people who did not read the books. In present-day Manhattan, The Greek gods Poseidon and Zeus are at war. Percy is thrust into the world of Greek gods. Percy is a ‘troubled’ kid who had ADHD and dyslexia. On a school trip, a demon attacks him and is taken away to a ‘camp’ by his mother. He knows about his father, So, he is puzzled to see his mom sending him to a camp his father suggested. Percy wakes up in ‘Camp Half-Blood’ where demigods (children of a god and a human) lived inside the protected borders.
He discovers that his father was indeed a god and he was a demigod. While he gets trains for survival, he tries to adjust to the camp. After the game night, he is accused of stealing Zeus’ lightning bolt, a weapon of mass destruction. To prove himself innocent and rescue his mother from the underworld, he travels with two of his friends of a series of action-packed adventures. According to me, besides a few errors of casting according to the book and difference here and there the first movie in the ‘franchise’ isn’t as bad as people make it to be. It is a great watch for people who love Greek mythology. I recommend reading the book series by Rick Riordan. The books are much better than the movie in this case, but the movie overall is a good watch.
