Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief Review and Giveaway...

My family was excited to be able to review Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief!

Having all boys this was a great hit here at my house! We really liked this movie. It has a lot of action and comedy. We thought it it was pretty funny when Percy finds out his friend that has been walking on crutches actually is half goat from the waist down. Then it's really cool when Percy starts to learn he is the son of Poseidon and starts to figure out his power with water. This movie has Pierce Brosnan and Uma Thurman who both have really good characters. There are even some shoes with wings that Percy uses to fly. This is a fun family movie.

The Blu-ray special features are great too. There is a quiz you can take to see what powers you would have. A bunch of deleted scenes, secrets of the gods and plenty more.


Tuesday, June 29th, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief.

Modern and mythical worlds collide in a heroic epic adventure when Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief arrives on Blu-ray Disc and DVD June 29 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Based on the popular book series by Rick Riordan, the film follows trouble-prone Percy Jackson who finds himself having problems in high school… but that’s the least of his challenges. It’s the 21st century, but the gods of Mount Olympus have walked out of the pages of his Greek mythology texts and into his life, and they’re not happy – Zeus’ lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Learning he is the son of Poseidon, the young teen finds himself caught between angry and battling gods, and embarks on a cross-country adventure to catch the true lightning thief and unravel a mystery more powerful than the gods themselves.

Directed by Chris Columbus (first two Harry Potter films), Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief stars rising star Logan Lerman (“Jack & Bobby”), and features an ensemble cast including Rosario Dawson (Seven Pounds), Steve Coogan (Night At The Museum films), Uma Thurman (Kill Bill films), Pierce Brosnan (The Thomas Crown Affair, James Bond films), Catherine Keener (Where The Wild Things Are), and Kevin McKidd (“Grey’s Anatomy”). The Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief Blu-ray includes over an hour of special features, 10 deleted scenes, a “Secrets of the Gods” featurette, an “On Set” with Brandon T. Jackson, and much more. The standard DVD includes five deleted scenes, “Bringing The Book To Life” featurette and a “Discover Your Powers” quiz.
