Percy Jackson ain't no Pussy Potter wannabe



Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief
Not a Review.
Yes, another adaptation of a kid's fantasy book.
By Chris Columbus samore.
Another Harry Potter wannabe?
Well, yes, and no.



Movie's not bad actually.
I've always liked Greek gods,
Zeus, Poseiden, Hades, Athena, Hermes etc.
And Greek mythology as well.
There's Medusa, Persephone, Hydras...
What, no Cerebus?
Oh, Columbus did it in Harry Potter before.



It's got er, James Bond as a centaur.
(At least he doesn't sing)
The Bride as a er... severed head.
Boromir as the King of Gods,
Steve Coogan as Hades!
And that Stella chick from CSI: NY as Athena



It's actually not bad.
Not a disaster like The Dark Is Rising.
About the same standard as The Spiderwick Chronicles,
But not as good as say, Harry Potter 3.
It's better and less BORING than Harry Potter 1 & 2 though.
Which were done by Columbus, BTW.



Sure, it's a bit predictable,
But I got a kick out of the Greek myths being 'modernised'
And Steve Coogan was a hoot as Hades.
The three leads a bit annoying though.
And the chick wasn't very hot also.
(Rosario Dawson as Persephone was though)



And it was good enough that after the movie,
I actually went and bought the book.
Like I said, I'm a sucker for Greek mythology.
And I'd take this over Twilight anytime.
At least no one sparkled in THIS movie...
