Movie Review: Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

In the 21st century, A teenager Percy Jackson discovers he's actually a demi-God, the son of Poseidon, and he is the prime suspect when Zeus' lightning is stolen. Percy must master his newfound skills in order to prevent a war between the Gods that could devastate the entire world. He and his friends embark on a cross-country adventure to catch the true lightning thief, save Percy's mom, and unravel a mystery more powerful than the gods themselves.

Do you know what is this story about the ancient Greek gods, such as Zeus, Hades, Athena, Hermes and others? Mount Olympus was the home of the Greek gods, but did you know to get there all you have to do is take an elevator secretly located inside the Empire State Building to get there? I was shocked to learn Medusa owns a stone-status shop! in New Jersey and...What?! Underground of Hell is located in Hollywood?!

When I watched the Medusa's part, it remind me to read a greek story about Perseus cut her head..With help from Athena and Hermes, who supplied him with winged sandals, Hades' cap of invisibility, a sword, and a mirrored shield, he accomplished his quest. That is why it is similar when Percy are saving his mother as his quest while he are fighting with evil monsters with a daughter of Athena and half-goat man. He also have a sword, winged shoes and gold mirror which given by a son of Hermes, Luke.

There are a magical training facility is set up in the woods for their half-human, half-god children (referred to as demigods) to learn their skills, such as they learn how to fight with used the swords, how to plan the strategy battle, etc...Like Harry Potter who learn how to use magic in the school castle... :P

But, Lotus casino in Las Vegas part is very boring. They better to use Cerberus, three-headed dog, guarded Hades' underworld when Percy and his friends visit Hades! -_- Because they use the monster dogs who guard Hades's home. Why Hades is a fire demon?! For me, he is not demon..He just is god of death who ruled the underground 'Hell'. so, it is not impressive about Hades' part. Percy and Luke always fighting in the air... O_o He is very strong when he used the magic of water.. He really need water because it can heal and power up on him!
