Percy Jackson and the Olympians is a great fantasy action Blu-ray that should please the entire family if your youngest is 12 or more. Percy Jackson and the Olympians The Lightning Thief is a movie that wastes little time telling its very imaginative story and features great action sequences and excellent CGI creatures.
According to Percy Jackson and the Olympians if you have dyslexia it is because your brain is hardwired to read ancient Greek and ADHD is just a symptom of great battle reflexes. This is what Percy discovers at about the same time he finds out he is a demigod and the son of Poseidon. He also finds out Zeus thinks he stole his lightning -though why is very unclear-- and a whole bunch of nasty gods and creatures are after it and him. The good news is he has good friends like Grover (a half man half goat creature called a satyr played by Jackson) and Athena's daughter Annabeth (Daddario).
Percy decides to go to Olympus and tell Zeus he didn't steal anything but getting to that part is not going to be easy and involve a few different and adventure filled quests.
Percy Jackson & the Olympians The Lightning Thief works for many reasons. One is the movie does not dumb it down and explain everything to the audience. When it does, it assumes you are intelligent enough to figure some stuff out yourself.
This is an action Blu-ray you'll want to watch a few times. Look for Citizen Kane's Rosebud in the right hand of the screen at the beginning of the ferryman's crossing during the Hades scene
