Movie trailer


Loosely follows the book. The characters are too old, Annabeth's eyes and hair are the wrong color, etc. It appears as though the producers did not read the books, just heard it by word of mouth. Movies don't usually follow books very well, but this one takes the cake.
Posidon approves this! :P
7/10 from me :D
read the books rather than watching this movie, the plot is kinda.... bad the characters are badly acted, some moments of satisfaction and epicness but it is overshadowed by the bad acting and plot 3/10
A cheap man's Harry Potter...Still worth the time to watch this movie...6.5/10
This was actually entertaining. Given the mixed reviews, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. There are some clichés and some of the acting could have been better, but I think it was intended as such (probably given the targeted audience). I give it an 8/10 and worth a watch.
Poor narrative, horrible acting, lightning effects are worse than the first Poltergheist. The only worth watching scene is the water show on the roof of the building.
I'm starting to get tired of these school boarding propaganda that mediocre films like this try to set in children's minds.
Pretty good movie overall had a good cast good storyline I rate this movie 8/10 can't wait till the next one comes out.
I really love this movie!
Even ignoring the barrage of comparison to Harry Potter, this movie barely stands on its own. The acting is flat, the storyline is more like a video game than a movie, and the visuals, while probably expensive, are unimpressive.
From the opening sequence where Poseidon and Zeus inexplicably pose as tourists on the observation deck of the Empire State Bldg and Poseidon says, "Zeus! I haven't seen you in a while," you know what you're in for. Boasts some well known names who look like they're having fun with the cheesy dialogue. For teens and younger, it's a passable adventure. For everyone else, it could be difficult to sit through til the end.
