The 1st Percy Jackson movie Report Abuse
I loved this book, but then for the movie they made everyone so much older, sucked out the humor, and changed a SUPER MAJOR plot point to absolutely ruin a chance of a good sequel.

Book was really AWESOME, I never get bored- it was long but eventful and fluent, but the movie was the shortest and it sucked.

Starship Trooper Report Abuse
A great book on the importance of service and dedication to others, a suggestion for an alternative government and definition of citizenship, converted into a B-movie shoot 'em up.
