I recently saw both the Percy Jackson movies with VERY high expectations and I can say with full assurance that the directors failed me. Let’s start with everything wrong with the movie- Lightning thief.
ANNABETH AND HER HAIR-
NO SERIOUSLY LIKE REALLY. Annabeth is known for her blonde hair and they kept her hair brown in this. HOW COULD THEY RUIN THE MAIN CHARACTERS MOST IMPORTANT PART???????????
Clarrise? Who’s that?
That’s right. Clarrise La Rue didn’t exist in the movie. SHE WASN’T MENTIONED OR INTRODUCED OR ANYTHING WHILE SHE WAS ONE OF THE MAIN ANTAGONIST BULLY OF THE MOVIE, THE DIRECTORS CUT HER OUT
Mr D didn’t exist
A very important yet annoying character, Mr D had no role in the movie. HOW COULD THEY DO THAT? JUST HOW?
ARES HAD NO ROLE–
Yes, the main god of the movie had no role. THEY LITERALLY CUT 3 VERY IMPORTANT CHAPTERS OF THE BOOK
But that my dear readers Are nothing compared to what I’m about to say about movie 2
Yes, they made Annabeth blonde, they made Clarrise and Mr D exist but that’s about it.
In movie 2 there was-
2 IMPORTANT CHAPTERS ARE NOT MENTIONED AT ALL
BUT MY MAIN COMPLAINT IS-
THEY FIRST SHORTENED THE SEA OF MONSTERS. THEY EVEN MADE KRONOS RISE IN THE END, ALSO ON THE ISLAND ITSELF WHERE CIRCE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE AND THERE WAS NO BATTLE OF MANHATTAN JUST PERCY PUTTING RIPTIDE IN KRONOS’ FEET (END OF STORY THAT’S IT, HE DIES). THEN THEY EVEN KILL ANNABETH (AND GET HER BACK IN THE END) AND MADE LUKE DIE BY HAVING HIM EATEN BY KRONOS ON THE ISLAND ITSELF. THE MAIN BATTLE WAS OF 10 MINUTES. THEY FORGOT THAT ANY OTHER BOOK EXISTS AND JUST CUT TO THE LAST OLYMPIANS, THE PART WHEN KRONOS COMES BACK FINALLY.
BUT THIS MOVIE WAS NOTHING
Well, that’s all,
Thanks for hearing my (very angry) P.O.V
