To start running Percy Jackson in the brilliant world of cinema called the director Chris Columbus. It's
understandable - Columbus once had a very successful start of the film Harry Potter's life, you look, work, and the lightning success of the strike in the same person a second time. In addition, there is another important knowledge about Columbus - director safer it probably will not find in the whole wide world. So everything is supposedly the first 2:00 of the adventures of Percy Jackson we have seen the funny event - like Chris Columbus diligently observes the letter of the story books and parallel to the wiping out all traces of the content on any, even the tiny depth.
It is clear that in the history of how the real Greek gods roam the modern world and leave behind the endless offspring, the author with the imagination and the desire to have something to say would be, where to turn. According to some fragmentary plot lines can be understood that the author of the literary source material with a double, triple and other senses, he kept in the smuggling teenage motivational adventure, it was all right.
The very first scene of the meeting of Zeus and Poseidon on the observation platform the Empire State Building downright bursting with potential. Then the young heroes have to meet with the Gorgon Medusa and descend into the underworld to Aida, where the young satyr, a friend Percy will have to stay with his wife, the voluptuous Persephone Hades to save everyone. In all these twists and turns there are many opportunities for wonderful ambiguities that make the story began to play would be interesting colors and for adults.
