The Lightning Thief



Last afternoon I took Lucas to watch The Lightning Thief. The cinema was almost empty (a Sunday Carnival late afternoon is great to this kind of entertainment, the room had 20 people inside, it was like being at home). What a movie! Perfect for kids of all ages, including the witch mom here! The mix of Greek Mythology and modern times is delicious, with all those well-known Gods and Goddesses I read about since I was a little girl - and Lucas know them well too, he was all the time long the movie whispering in my ear about them as if they were something new to me! LOL

I was delighted to see how much he loved the story, and how an ancient culture/religion/magic can still make its trick and keep a young audience without blinking. I won't say anything not to spoil the surprises for those who haven't watched it yet, but I highly recommend it! Now I want the books!!! :o)

The books are WAY better than the movie. I went to see it yesterday too, but I really didn't care for it.

Oh, my daughter wants to see this, because it's made by the same people who made the Harry Potter films! I saw the book today and almost picked it up. Since you've given it a good review, I'll have to take her now!

Do you think it would be okay (and not too scary) for my 5 year old?

My wife and I watched it as part of our Valentines Day 3 Movie Marathon. Both of us really enjoyed the story and special effects. It was a great start to the 3 movies and we would certainly recommend it to others as well.
