Greek mythology might be all the rage right now, but that doesn’t mean everything has to be dumbed down into video-game type scenarios and storytelling. That’s exactly what “Percy Jackson” is guilty of. The film doesn’t do any of its fantasy elements justice and all the characters feel like they’ve only been written for a Disney Channel demographic.
