'Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief'

Rating: PG for action violence and peril, some scary images and suggestive material, and mild language What it's about: A troubled teen discovers he's actually the son of a Greek god and goes on a quest to rescue his mom. The kid attractor factor: Supernatural action, supernatural creatures and a more than passing resemblance to the Harry Potter movies Good lessons/bad lessons: Mom sacrifices so much for you, maybe give a little back. Violence: Swordfights and the like Language: When you're stuck in Hades part of the movie, words are said Sex: Flirty teens Drugs: Lotus flowers get everybody buzzed, but there's a lesson in that. Parents' advisory: Surprisingly violent, a bit much for 8-and-unders Associated Press
