Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

One of my favorite movies ever!!

Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief
-When Zeus finds that his lightning bolt is missing, he accuses Poseidon's son Percy of stealing it. And he gives Poseidon's son Percy 14 days to find it and return it, otherwise he will initiate a war among the gods. Elsewherem, Percy is what he thinks is dyslexic, but it's not he can't read, it's that he can read ancient Greek. He also has ADHD and is at the Metropolitan Museum of Art with a friend of his, Grover. Suddenly, he is attacked by a Fury disguised as a teacher. Grover then tells Percy that he is a demigod, half god, half human and that he is Percy's protector.

-Mr. Brunner then gives him a pen which is really a weapon. With his mom, they drive to Camp Half-Blood. When they arrive, they are attacked by a Minotaur, and she disappears. When he enters the camp, he immediately befriends Annabeth, but they are attacked by Hades, who is looking for the Lightning Bolt.

-That's when he finds that Hades has his mother captive in the underworld and this sends him on a journey to save his mother from Hades, retrieve the lightning bolt and clear his name of wrongdoing.
