Overview and Review of the movie Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief directed by Chris Columbus based on the novel by Rick Riordan
I'm into Greek mythology.. and so that's one reason I wanted to watch this.
It went great (aside from the company, I watched the movie with). We laughed at the originality of name of the camp "HalfBlood". But, the cinematography was great. I did not get to read the novel, so I don't know about any renditions or deviations of the said book.
Entertaining lotus flowers.. you never want to leave.. be awake.. dull your senses.. that's one of the best metaphor i can get from the movie: "about being awake" and "being present".
The movie itself was entertaining and engaging (Although, it has it's own fair share of loopholes) and suddenly I want to be a demigod. :p Haha.
