It's nothing like the books. Annabeth's hair, the plot, what's with the pearls????? Still, I kinda liked it, as a movie. But, I advise you to read the book first. Or, just watch the second one. It's way better, and you can just read the first book. 5 out of 10.

I found Chris Columbus' directing disappointing and lacking in subtlety. Many key plot twists from the book were omitted, and the characters were simplified to the point of inanity.

Nothing like the book, but still a decent movie.

If you liked the books at all, never watch this. It is so inaccurate, it will make you scream. Even if you did not read the book, it is still a terrible movie.

While it is very different from the book throughout the whole movie, it isn't bad. Put all the inaccuracies behind, and enjoy the movie. Once I did, like I said before, I saw it was actually an okay movie.

Oh, and make sure to watch the scene that is partway through the credits. ;)

I was so looking forward to seeing this movie because of how much I love all the Percy Jackson books (and series'), but to my dismay this may have been the most inaccurate and poorly shot film adaptation possible for how well written the books were. Everything from the countless-flaws in the storyline, to some of the corniest weak acting you'll ever see, this movie was spot OFF with its endeavor to copy a fantastic book. I could only suffer through half of this movie as my disgust led me to shut it off, something I have never done before.
