Okay effects, etc, but the screenplay just stinks.
Well, a few weeks ago, a friend of mine introduced me to the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series of books. I'm not usually into books, but I absolutely loved the series. After I finished reading all of the books, I watched this movie, and from the start, was very disappointed. The visual effects in this film are okay, but I find myself being forced into being extremely critical of this movie because of its almost total disregard for the story in the book. If a person has not read the book, or series, then they might have a better impression of the film. However, I could see nothing but chronographical errors, missing characters, misplaced characters, as if the screenwriter had rushed through the book, or simply read its nonexistent crib notes, maybe nothing more than a paraphrased excerpt from the entire book. I apologize if I may turn some people away from this movie, as I am only attempting to explain my low rating for The Lightning Thief.
