With storm clouds brewing, Percy embarks on an incredible cross-country journey to prove his innocence, recover the bolt, and prevent a war among the gods that could destroy our world!

I am a big Percy Jackson fan, and the movie didn't follow the book as well as was expected.
However, it is pretty good on it's own, so give it a try!
The movie for the second book (Percy jackson and the Sea of Monsters)is coming soon!
I therefore only recommended this for the completist, or possibly the movie fan wanting to see the performances of the particular actors involved, which are actually quite nice.
Updated to add: the second book, Sea of Monsters, is being made into a movie. I will watch it if only to see Nathan Fillion (Castle, Dr. Horrible's Siing-Along Blog, Firefly) as Hermes, but my expectations for the story itself are very low.
That being said, it was a pretty good movie. The acting wasn't bad, and the special effects were great. In short, I'd rate it better if it hadn't been "ruined" by the book! ;)
It will be interesting what they do in the just recently green lighted sequel, since they have potentially killed off Luke (hey - he could have survived the watery trident to the throat - maybe Kronos will pick him up at sea in his cruise ship).
Logan Lerman is a good choice for Percy. While older than Percy in the original volumes, he has a boyish face that still lends some innocence and sweetness to the character. Loved the ancillary casting with Sean Bean as Zeus.
Sit back and enjoy it as a movie and as long as you don't expect it to be the same as the book - you might actually enjoy it!
