Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief

I got a free pass to watch  the special screening of "Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief" yesterday at Cathay Cineplex in Damansara (A big Thanks to Daniel). It was AWESOME that I got watch this movie even before other Malaysians got to do so *feeling special now* XD

Well, we did get some "entertainment" along the way. First, there I was sitting comfortably in my seat just before the movie started, suddenly out of no where, a women started cursing. She eventually left the hall with an elderly guy still cursing. I have no idea what the whole commotion was all about and seriously, it was damn annoying. Interrupted my peace.

Then, halfway though the movie, technical error. =.='' that's when people started making noise and there was this guy in the front who out of no where shouted "satu Malaysia". I have no idea what satu Malaysia has got to do technical error, so, WTF!? Eventually, got things fixed and of course, the scene where fast forwarded a bit. Not to my liking. I hate watching movie halfway halfway; but hey the bright side is, it's free =P


The movie revolves around the son of Poseidon who was thought to have stolen the lightning bolt from Zeus. Zeus then sets a dateline to which his lightning bolt must be return to him of it will be Zeus vs Poseidon. Upon hearing rumors that Percy, Son of Poseidon, had stolen the bolt, everyone was suddenly after him, including Hades. Hades held his mom as a hostage forcing Percy to travel to the underworld to try save his mom. Travelling to the underworld is not a problem; getting back to the real world of course is a bit of a problem. They'd need a special pearl. The whole movie emphasized on Percy's adventure to get this special pearl a tad too much so much so I kinda think the movie should be named "Percy Jackson and The Special Pearl to Get The Hell Out of  Hell". Oh, there's also some love thrown in along way. Two kinds of love if you must know, motherly love and girlfriendly love. Fighting scenes where awe-full, and scenes where not well synchronized. There are a few stuff I enjoyed watching throughout the special screening; the special effects of the water and the handsome young Logan Lerman but that's about it. My overall rating of this movie is 4/10
