The Lotus Casino sequence was filmed at the Westin Bayshore Hotel in Vancouver. On the exterior, exclusively the entrance was decorated to look like a casino entrance, and the large, beautiful fountain in front of the entrance was built by the filmmakers as well. The rest of the casino's massive exterior bells and whistles were created by the digital effects team on the computer and inserted into the shots after filming wrapped. However, the entire interior was constructed to look an enormous, beautiful casino. The filmmakers designed the interior trimmings and decorations completely from scratch, filled the interior with very convincing casino games and indoor amusement park rides, and used a brand new Maserati to set up the "win this car" stand in the casino lobby.

The heroes escape the Lotus casino by jumping into a Maserati that is offered as a prize and driving off. Due to fire danger the car on display would have had no gas in the tank so it could not have started and run. 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.
