Percy Jackson & The Olympians - DVD Review & Giveaway


DVD Synopsis:
Modern and mythical worlds collide in a heroic epic adventure when Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief arrived 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.



My Review:
We've watched Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief twice now and I wouldn't complain if we watched it again. Although I think this movie is geared more towards teenagers, my husband and I enjoyed the plot, characters, and elements that made up this movie. There were a couple of scenes that may scare littler children and I didn't care much for the song "Highway to Hell" playing in the background during a scene but, as a whole, I thoroughly enjoyed watching it. After having watched it, two of my kids have expressed an interest in reading the book series. Anything that gets them excited to read is a plus. I'd like to see other movies based on this book series, if they're as good as this one.

Win It!
Three people will win Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief on DVD.

I think my favorite mythological Greek god is Hermes, because he's such a light-hearted scoundrel/trickster. Even as a baby! (If we're talking any mythological being, I think my fav is Loki from Norse mythology, though.)

Thank you for the giveaway - I love this movie. :-)
