Good Idea, Rashly Executed

  • Summary: The premise of this movie - that Greek gods were real and have offspring in the modern world - is interesting. But the execution of this idea felt very rushed in this movie. I haven't read the book, so can't judge where the blame lies for this.

  • Summary: Embarrassing for my son, a fan of the books, who took me to this movie. I use the term loosely. Bad acting, clumsy plot and character development non existent. Where have all the actors gone these days??

It Numbed My Mind Raw

  • Summary: I've never been a big fan of Greek mythology, so based upon that criteria I've never been a big fan of movies about the subject. Though I have grown to be pretty fond of the book series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

Niklas, cdon.se

  • Summary: Slentrianmässig filmatisering av Percy Jackson-seriens första bok. Borta är bokens atmosfär, personteckning och hela berättelsens dynamik. Vad är kvar? En platt ungdomsaction, inget mer... Varför slarva så?
