              You should have sinned that he was all of a sudden able to battle like skilled even the books dont explain that.

                If you actually did read the books you would have to pull up a bunch of movie faults that have nothing to do with the actual story hahahahah funny.

                    if you read the books then it would explain Chiron's wheelchair and there would be so many more cinema sins. also, how did he hold Zuese's master bolt in his bare hands?

                      Don't wanna be that guy but... It's better explained in the book. Basically (and from what I remember) they use some form of divine magic to make the wheelchair act like some sort of Tardis like portal "bigger on the inside" and everything.
                      Also in the book, he has a blanket to cover up his lower half.
                      Also also there's an element in the books called the mist that allow you to hide pretty much everything from the human eye, that element isn't introduced until the second film I think but for example, Percy fight Hares at some point in a fight with spear, sword... You know... Basic greek stuff. Then some cops show up and they yell "Put your guns down !" meaning the mist disguised the dual that involve ancient weapon and divine powers from both side into a regular gun fight between two individuals.

                      This is one of the reasons the Percy Jacksons franchise probably has one of the worst cinema adaptation ever.

                      Another example is during his fight against the Minotaur. In the books, Percy doesn't have his sword anymore (momentarily) and has to fight the minotaur with have he have, and what he have is the very horn of the Minotaur himself. Now the movie kept that part where he killed a minotaur with his own horns BUT the plothole here is that they let Percy have his sword with him.
                      The Sword as just lying there on the floor, it's an extremely powerfull sword capable of slaying gods, monster and all kind of shit.
                      On the other side you have the Minotaur's horns, so fragile that it got detached after getting planted in a tree simply because of the strenght of the animal pulling his head of the tree.

                      Percy looks at the horns, then the sword, then the horns again and so on... Even tho we see that both are about equidistant to Percy, this dumbass HESITATE between the two... Seriously ? You have your magic sword right there you moron ! Use it to stab that bloody cow and get over it for fuck sake.

I know the books don’t matter here at cinemasins, but the books just make me hate this movie even more because they where so amazing! I’m actually pursuing a college education and career in mythology because they made me fascinated, and passionate about the subject. I was ecstatic when I learned of this movies existence, and so disappointed when it was over. Why I wrote all this heartfelt stuff instead of just leaving a poop emoji we will never know.

Greek Gods, in the book Percy Jackson and the lightning thief and the following books read that the Greel Gods and Goddesses were able to teleport where they chose.

Take Percy and Leo for example, Percy can touch water and feel refreshed. But if Leo (HOO BOOK ONE) touches fire, he is just fire resistant, it doesn't heal him, but he can summon them.
