Today my dad challenged me to write the post! So, here is a post from The Geekspawn comparing The Percy Jackson Movies to the Books!
Percy Jackson – The Lighting Thief: In the movie of: The Lighting Thief, they did pretty good at getting the story right, but they got all the actors wrong. Wrong hair color, eye color, and there were also three major problems.
- The final battle. Percy is supposed to fight Ares for the Master Bolt, and in the Movie, he fights Luke.
- Saint Louis. In the Book Percy, Annabeth, and Grover go through Saint Louis and fight Echidna and her Chimera at the top of the arch, and they completely remove that from the movie as well.
- Grover Vs. Mom. When they get to the underworld, Percy is supposed to sacrifice his mom to help his friends. This is supposed to show him getting braver and stronger. But instead, Grover volunteers to take her place.
Percy Jackson – The Sea of Monsters; In this movie, they did a lot better, until the end. At the end of this movie, Kronos comes back to life, which isn’t even supposed to happen until the fourth movie/book, (The Battle of the Labyrinth) but he comes back as a giant creature instead of possessing Luke, giving Luke the chance to be a hero which he is supposed to do!
Both movies had their problems, but they were still good. Which did YOU like better, the movies, or the books?
