C. Fuchs quote iconWhat's present is passable enough, but the overriding problem -- beyond the familiarity of the general storyline and thus lack of coming off as special -- is that it isn't as magical as one would like. And it certainly lacks the intricate and fun attention to detail that's made the ''Potter'' flicks generally entertaining (especially concerning one's first exposure to that new, fantastical world).

Tomatometer quote iconThough it may seem like just another Harry Potter knockoff, Percy Jackson benefits from a strong supporting cast, a speedy plot, and plenty of fun with Greek mythology.
