this movie was the worst movie ever. i'll tell you why, if you ever read the books you'll understand it and relate to what i'm saying, because the books was freaking good. and now they just ruined it by the movie. if you like bad movies watch this you'll regret it. it just disgraces the authors name i'm so sorry Rick Riordon.

THE WORST MOVIE EVER MADE. Don't waste your time watching this movie, like, seriously go play outside or something. the book was so amazing but the movie is a disgrace and a let down to Percy Jackson fans every where. Read the Books. Don't watch the movie. Seriously don't. you'll thank me later.

If you are a fan of the novel, do not expect this movie to be as good. This movie completely changed the story, and definitely not in a good way. There were so many changes to characters and the plot; the movie was nowhere near as good as the book. I do not recommend this movie if you are a fan of the books, HOWEVER, I do know some people who have watched the movie before reading the book, and they enjoyed it since they had no original expectations from reading the novel. If you have not read the books before but have seen the movie and enjoyed it, I recommend reading the books, as they are so much better. @teen_reader19 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

I can't begin to explain how bad this movie was compared to the book. The thing I'm going to start with is the character's appearance. The character that they messed up the most was Annabeth. In the book, Annabeth is described as having blonde, curly hair, tanned skin and a muscled build. In the movie, she has none of those things. It' really not that hard to find a blonde, tan actress in Hollywood, so I don't get why they picked Alexandra Daddario, a brown-haired fair-skinned actress to play her. I could think of lots of other actresses more fit to play Annabeth. All of the characters also look much older than they should, which I know was intended, but it wasn't a good idea. The characters are only supposed to be 12 years old, but they look about 16 or17. I can understand where the directors were coming from since younger actors can be harder to work with, but that doesn't excuse them. The only reason that I gave this movie a star is because they (mostly) stuck to the plot. Although a lot of crucial plot elements, like Annabeth's Yankees cap that turns her invisible, were omitted, I could still pick out the individual chapters and moments. 2/5. @designercoffee of the Hamilton Public Libraryโ€™s Teen Review Board

After reading the book I must say that the movie is nowhere near as good. Very disappointing, and things happen in the movie that don't in the book, either. To be honest, this movie is kind of an insult to the author of the Percy Jackson series.

friend bought the movie, i did not read the book. after watching for about 20 minutes i could not watch anymore. movie was cheesy and the dialogue was too cliche and boring. even though some parts were somewhat intense, i was expecting much more intensity with a serious theme while also being set in modern time.

Pretty good movie. It's got some bad language , but otherwise it's OK.
I wish they had Ares and some other stuff.

Mr. Brunner: "Percy, take this to defend yourself. It's a powerful weapon. Guard it well. Only use it in times of severe distress.

Other: the movie is too different from the book and doesn't even deserve to have the same name
