The movie was enjoyable w/ plenty of action but it can be a bit cheesy and predictable. It could be a rental but if you are really into Greek mythology, I say go for it.

We were excited to see the New Percy Jackson movie. Unfortunately we came away very disappointed. The characters just lacked any depth. It felt like they were just going through the motions.

Took my 15 year old son to see this movie because we had seen the first one. Great movie. Hopefully the next one won't take 2 years like this one did.

This was a surprisingly great movie! Before tickets were purchased, I asked one of my sons if I should have seen the first movie or read the first book (Lightning Thief) before seeing this movie. He said yes. But, thanks to the "recap" at the beginning of this movie, I was able to catch-up with the story line and not feel like I was lost. This movie's plot was excellent, and the acting was well done. Everyone slightly interested in seeing this movie just has to go and enjoy it!

I didn't read all of the books and I enjoyed the movie. The movie though didn't have good acting, it was even painfully awkward at times. But it did have its moments. Stanley Tucci for example was one of those moments. He was hilarious. I loved his character. On the other hand, my sister who has read and loved the book series did not like the movie one bit. She was upset that they changed so much. I say wait till it comes out on redbox. It's a good clean family movie so that would be the upside. There were a few kids in the audience who enjoyed it. I love Logan Lerma but this movie just wasnt his best.
