Athena was a maiden goddess (she could never marry), yet she had children, such as Annabeth, because like her, her children are born from pure thought, and given as a gift to the men she truly admires, therefore she is able to have demigod children, and still be a maiden goddess See more »

I won't spoil the parts that mattered the most (since most were incorrect) but the the movie was pretty good. I understand the people who do not enjoy the movie because of its accuracy to book (like the ages, Clarrise's character, and Annabeth's hair etc.), but remember the movie IS 2 HOURS!!! They probably did not have enough time and money to produce this movie's other important scenes. I will admit the beginning and plot moved way too fast and that even the alternate scenes to replace what the book's chapter has, is kinda unsatisfying. So to the people who read the book, but did not see this movie, give it a shot. And keep this part of my review a thought.
To the people do wanna see it, please do! There's a lot of fast past action scenes, pretty hilarious moments, and satisfying duologue. Though there was not enough character development to understand the background and history of every character, and little information of what is going on. If you watch until the end, the characters develop a little more, and things start to make a lot more sense.
Bottom line: See it. Personally, I wouldn't go and see it again on the theaters, but I will definitely buy this on DVD because there might be a lot of background scenes the DVD can offer (like in the trailers, Percy is standing outside of the "building" "alone")and why they chose "that" scene instead of "this". Oh yeah, remember, they probably didn't give all the chapters from the book play in the movie, because they didn't know if it would become successful, smart move writers...smart move...I'm gonna give this a ten because most of these reviews listed here didn't reflect what I saw, and its poor rating.
Senses: The sound was absolutely wonderful (probably because I was in the front), it sounded realistic AND matching. The graphics/effects were OK, it could have touched up a bit more (again, probably because I was in the front, so things looked blurry, and I didn't wear my glasses). Still good enough to be put on the big screen. My feelings for this movie was really good, my heart was actually pounding when they did the fight scenes. These types of movies, action/adventure etc, are in my taste. And it definitely goes well with food as your watching.
Just an FYI this is my first review ever, and I'm a huge fan-boy of the series. I hope you enjoyed reading this.
