Percy Jackson Episode 1 Review

This series is based on a 12-year-old boy who is half-blood. It is a child born from the union of a human being and God. He is doing everything well in his normal life, but one day he comes to know that he has some superpowers. Actually, when Percy Jackson was young, he used to have many visions, due to which he was getting very troubled in his day-to-day life, and when he used to tell someone all this, he used to see some monsters around him. When people look closer, they don’t believe him.

He started getting very troubled by all these things, after which he started living apart from everyone in his class. He also has a friend named Grover Underwood, and they both often spend time together. They both study in the same class, and the kids in that class don’t like Percy at all because he was always making pictures of monsters that he saw in front of him or in his vision.

Percy Jackson has superpowers that he doesn’t know about, and one day, when a girl in his class jokingly throws something at his friend, Percy gets angry and goes to her. She is touched and thrown into the water, after which he again sees a monster that is about to kill him, but suddenly everything becomes perfect there. Percy is expelled from school for pushing Nancy into the water, after which he goes home, where he learns that he is a half-blood and that it is very difficult for him to live a pure life.

This first episode of Percy Jackson and The Olympians can be said to be made for character building because the way each character is slowly coming to know about his potential will give a different impression in future episodes.

All the actors have done amazing acting, and hardly anyone will have any complaints about their cast. Its first episode sets a dark theme in this series, and from this, we can guess how dark and action-packed the upcoming episodes can be. Its music and cinematography are very good, and the way they are building the characters of this series is going to prove to be a very good thing for this series in the future. In its first episode, some master is shown who looks quite dangerous, and his CGI seemed a little lacking, but overall things were good. There were a few mistakes that can be ignored, but otherwise, this episode was very good.

The next episodes can be even better because in the post-credit scene at the end of this episode, we can see that now Percy Jackson has returned to Half Blood’s camp, where he will meet other children like him, and there Percy will learn things.
