Flash Review Friday: Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief (2010)

With the release of Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters right around the corner, it would only make sense to shed some light on its 2010 predecessor, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.  As a fan of mythology, I can honestly say that I definitely have a soft spot for this movie and I will definitely be seeing the series’ second installment. It’s only natural that numerous reviewers have compared the Percy Jackson films to the Harry Potter franchise, but by setting aside these obvious comparisons, a solid appreciation for the movie can be had and enjoyed.
 
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief introduces us to a world where demi gods live among the common people and hones in on the adventures of Percy Jackson, son of Poseidon; Annabeth Chase, daughter of Athena; and Luke Castellan, son of Hermes, who is arguably Percy Jackson’s main antagonist. It’s very interesting to see a book’s alternate universe unfold through a motion picture; avid fans of the book series will certainly make the second installment of Percy Jackson a huge success. I hope this Flash Friday finds you well and feel free to let us know what you think about the Percy Jackson franchise!
