My Penny of View : Movie started with the meeting between Poseidon-God of the Sea and Zeus-King of Gods, that Zeus claiming Poseidon's son stealing his bolt. Zeus gave Poseidon 14 days to get back the bolt, if not war will break out. On another scene, Percy Jackson was a high school kid with some difficulties in reading. During his visit at museum, his teacher called him to another room and suddenly she attacked him. Percy's friend, Grover and his teacher, Mr. Brunner came in on time to rescue Percy. Grover brought Percy and Percy's mother to the half blood camp. Meanwhile, he explained to him that the camp was meant for those children of God and human. Hades-God of Dead and Underworld, caught Percy's mother as prisoner to trade in the bolt. Percy was given training at the half blood camp but he insisted want to rescue his mother at the Underworld. He started his journey with Grover, satyr and Annabeth, the daughter of Athena, Goddess of Wisdoms and Battles Strategies. Will Percy able to save his mother? Who is exactly the lighting thief?

The story was based on the a story book and you will impress by casting list to play the Gods such as Uma Thurman and Pierce Brosnan. The storyline was easy to follow. It was all about the children between human and Gods when Gods came to the earth for certain mission. The children were categorized as mutan and they were put at the special camp for training. This part just like the X-Men. The children very powerful because they don't need curse or wand to make the spell work. Somehow, you will have one question, how can the lighting bolt has been easily stolen from one of the big Gods-Zeus? Anyway, I did enjoy the show because I get to know many Gods and Goddess but some people commented the movie was quite childish.
