About this item

Trouble-prone Percy Jackson is having problems in high school - but that's the least of his challenges. It's the 21st century, but the gods of Mount Olympus seem to have walked out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology texts and into his life. Percy has learned that his real father is Poseidon, god of the sea, which means Percy is a demigod - half human / half god. At the same time, Zeus, the king of all gods, has accused Percy of stealing Zeus' lightning bolt... the original weapon of mass destruction. Now Percy must prepare for the adventure of a lifetime, and the stakes couldn't be higher. With ominous storm clouds brewing over the planet and his own life now in peril, Percy travels to a special enclave called Camp Half Blood, where he trains to harness his newly discovered powers and prevent a devastating war among the gods. There, Percy meets two fellow demigods - the warrior Annabeth, who is searching for her mother, the goddess Athena; and his childhood friend and protector, Grover, who is actually a brave but untested Satyr. Grover and Annabeth then join Percy on an incredible transcontinental odyssey that takes them six hundred stories above New York City (the portal to Mount Olympus) and to the iconic Hollywood sign, under which burn the fires of the Underworld. At journey's end rests the fate of the world - and the life of Percy's mother Sally, whom Percy must rescue from the depths of Hell itself. Percy Jackson: Half human. Half god. All hero.

Languages: English, French and Spanish, Subtitles: English and Spanish, Deleted Scenes, Featurettes.

Good movie, but don't go in expecting the book

As a big Percy Jackson fan, I went in expecting a fairly close translation from book to movie. Though I understood that liberties will be taken with any book-based film, all the major setpieces should remain intact. Unfortunately this wasn't the case with The Lightning Thief. Gone are Ares, Clarisse, Iris messages, Dionysus, Luke's scar, or the camp the way it was described in the book, just to name a few. These are things I wanted to see brought to life on screen. Sadly, these and many other things were left out. Fortunately, the basic story remains intact. Percy must rescue his mother from the Underworld, all while trying to prevent war by retrieving Zeus's master bolt. On his journey, he's still accompanied by Grover and Annabeth. As a movie judged on it's own merit without a comparison to the book, it's actually very good. It has enough action and magic to please most fantasy fans. I wasn't able to watch the special features, so I'm not able to rate them. Overall, if you're a fan, go in with an open mind and you shoud enjoy it. If you're new to Camp Half-Blood, you'll enjoy it too -- and by all means go out and read the series. I'm on the last book and can't wait to see how it ends.

Excellent Movie

This was an excellent show and kept me wondering what was going to happen next. If you enjoyed Harry Potter, then you will most likely enjoy this show too. It is not a knock off though. I would love to see a second series to this movie. The film has a lot of animation & CGI to make it look as real as it can possibly get. The cast & crew did and excellent job on this. It definitely shows they have been perfecting their skills for quite some time.

This was a great deal, I was able to get the combo pack for the same price as just the regular DVD. I had to wait for shipping but still recieved the movie in one week. The movie itself is not as good as the book but that's to be expected. Still a great flick and our whole family enjoys it.
