A fantastic fun ride for the whole family of an ancient Greek classic with a modern day twist. Percy Jackson & The Olympians : The Lightning Thief is based on the books written by Rick Riordan. It is the story of a young boy who finds out that he is the some of one of the three most powerful gods of Olympus. He is an awkward teen who would rather hide at the bottom of the pool then deal with what is going on around him. At least that is the way that he was till he is accused of stealing the weapon of Zeus (Sean Bean) and Hades (Steve Coogan) snatches his mother to the underworld. It is now up to Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman), his junior protector Grover Underwood (Brandon T. Jackson) and his newest friend, the daughter of Athena (Melina Kanakaredes), Annabeth Chase (Alexandra Daddario) to find the weapon and rescue his mother.
