The Greek Gods are not a figment of our imagination as some would believe but are in fact existing and controlling the earth to this day. The lightning bolt of Zeus (Bean) is the most powerful weapon on Earth and it has been stolen. Zeus suspects his brother Poseidon's (McKidd) involvement in the theft and blames his son, Percy Jackson (Lerman) of being the lightning thief. The Greek Gods are often known to come down on Earth and mate with Earthlings to leave behind off springs that are half-god and half-human and thus known as demi-gods. Poseidon once fell in love with Sally (Keener) who gave birth to Percy. Poseidon started neglecting his duties and paid more attention to his new family which made Zeus pass a new law which forbid the gods from meeting their family members on Earth. Word soon gets around the gods that Zeus' bolt is stolen and everyone is in pursuit of Percy to get their hands on the bolt and become the most powerful being on the planet. Haedes holds Sally as ransom for the bolt and in order to save his mother he goes searching for an object he never stole. He has Grover (Johnson) a satyr, meaning half-human and half-goat to protect him at all times and Annabeth (Daddario) the daughter of Athena, goddess of wisdom and war strategy. The movie does explore a very interesting plot but still the fundamental outline is still very cliched. A boy discovering his unknown powers and eventually using it to save the world. Been there, done that. Adapted from a book with the same title, expect a sequel to it very soon.

Thumbs up: Greek Gods in the modern world
Thumbs down: Fundamental outline is too cliched

Rating: 7.2/10
