Undoubtedly being pushed by Twentieth Century Fox as a new Harry Potter-esque franchise, Percy Jackson though doesn’t have the credentials quite yet. The son of Poseidon, Percy recover the stolen lightning and clear his name all the while trying to find out who framed him for its theft. Lacking the depth or darkness of the better Harry Potters, Percy Jackson And The Lightning Thief has potential, but the whole cast will need to toughen up a little if they’re to really compete.
