Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief


Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

It's the 21st century, but the gods of Mount Olympus and assorted monsters have walked out of the pages of high school student Percy Jackson's Greek mythology texts and into his life. And they're not happy: Zeus' lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Even more troubling is the sudden disappearance of Percy's mother. As Percy finds himself caught between angry and battling gods, he and his friends embark on a cross-country adventure to catch the true lightning thief, save Percy's mom, and unravel a mystery more powerful than the gods themselves.

Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

I was really wowed by the technical presentation of this disc, starting with the film's 1080p/AVC- encoded transfer, which runs at a high bit rate (31 MBPS average), displays a striking amount of detail, and features great color and depth. The daylight scenes at Camp Half Blood are the richest and most vibrant in the film—with tight contrast, strong forest greens, and bold splashes of red and blue—but even the darker sequences later in the movie have a wide tonal range thanks to good shadow delineation and mostly consistent black levels. As you'd expect, the scenes at the Lotus Land Casino are especially vivid—bright, flashing neon lights, sultry skin tones—and the film's hellish vision of the underworld is just as impressive, all orange fire and brimstone. Clarity is finely resolved throughout, revealing facial texture and the intricate detailing of leather armor and battle-ready weaponry. While the CGI in the film falls somewhat behind the cutting edge of visual effects, the digital creations are nicely integrated into the 35mm film image, which features just enough grain to give the movie a warm, cinematic texture. Finally, there's no overt edge enhancement or DNR, and compression artifacts seem entirely absent.

Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

If the film's picture quality is striking, then its DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is like repeated blows to the head. This is a full-bodied, energetic mix, with earthquake-inducing LFE response— seriously, don't leave anything fragile sitting on your subwoofer—and lots of engaging, cross-channel interaction. The film is immersive from the very first frames, as a thunderstorm rips and tears at the air around us. Just about every battle scene is a sonic showpiece. The Fury flaps about madly, breaking a window and sending glass shattering every which way, swinging swords cut with a circular woosh though the soundfield, Medusa's snakes hiss all around, the Hydra breathes a wide swath of raging fire that cuts from left to right, and electricity snaps, crackles and pops. Sound design-wise, one of the best moments in the film is when Percy takes control of the water from four rooftop water towers; it rages and swirls throughout the soundstage, a maelstrom suspended in the air. All of the effects have palpable heft, but there's also a crystalline clarity to the high-end. The same could be said for Christophe Beck's noble, propulsive score, filled with open harmonies in the low brass. Throughout all the sonic chaos, dialogue stays clean, clear, and easy to understand. Turn this one up loud.
