In Greek Mythology Medusa was turned into a Gorgon because her great beauty lead to her being raped by Poseidon, Percy's father, in the temple of Athena, Annabeth's mother, who took offense and cursed her. Hence Medusa's hatred for them, and her reference to unfinished business. See more »

This is a great movie, but it just doesn't live up to the books. I think it would've been better if they just tried to have stayed with the books more, and possibly work with the detail a little better. That being said, I am a huge mythological gods person, and, just about no one could mess up a movie that has to do with them. I feel that it is so far away from the story that they could've changed it a bit, and then called it a new name. As I said, I wish it was closer to the book, and it was a disappointment, but what will I do, I have my opinion and that's that. If you are one of the people who can't read the book after the movie (like me), don't worry about it. I did exactly that, and was sucked into the book. It is far enough away that you can do that. If you didn't like the movie, still read the book, it is a great book, and you won't be disappointed.
