Percy's mom gets stolen.percy meets new friends at camp. Percy and his two friends go on a journey to find Percy's mom. They have a really big adventure. It is a really good movie.

    Good Movie

    This movie was good but the book was so much better because the true villain wasn't the one in this movie. I think this movie, however, is great for ten and up because during fifth grade children begin to learn about Greek myths that they will continue to learn in history class to the point that they might want to have a career associated with myths. Overall, a good movie that couldv'e been a bit better!

    Highly Recommended!

    When Zeus's Master Bolt is stolen, Zeus accuses none other then Poseidon's son Percy Jackson. Zeus gives Poseidon 14 days to return the Bolt to him. If it is not returned by the deadline, he would begin a war.

    Now, Percy doesn't know he's a demigod, a son of a Greek God. So he's surprised to figure out he is none other then the son of Poseidon, the God of the Sea. Not to mention, two of the teachers in his 'normal' life happen to be mythical creatures.
    So much for 'mythical' Oh, and Grover? His best friend? He's a satyr. He's half goat and his protector.

    So, Sally, Percy's Mom and Grover have no choice now that Percy knows his true bloodline. They take him to Camp Halfblood, a camp for Demigods. On the way, a Centar comes and ends up taking Sally. That's were the adventure begins.

    I love this movie. The first week I got it I watched it multiple times in a day.
