I don't think that people gave this movie enough credit. It was a pretty good movie. Now granted I never read the books so I don't know how it measures up to the original story, but I thought the story line was good and that the actors did a good job telling the story and keeping me interested.
Of course it could have just been all the feel good endorphines running through my body from just exercising, but I don't think so.
What did you think of Percy Jackson and the Lighting Thief?
