Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

Factual error: When Luke is playing video games in the camp he is using a Playstation controller, however when he pauses the game it shows a message telling him to push the 'B' button. 'B' buttons appear on Xbox games consoles rather than Playstations.

Continuity mistake: When the bus passes Poseidon and he disappears, the people walking near him also disappear. There is an Asian couple walking from left to right across the shot that should have been still there after Poseidon is gone. Sloppy SFX that sort of spoils the effect of a god being able to vanish.

Grumpy Scot

Plot hole: In Aunty Em's Emporium, when Medusa turns the older woman to stone, she has hold of Annabeth's wrist and Annabeth cannot free herself. Grover comes along later, as Percy is keeping Medusa busy, and breaks the arm of the statue that is holding Annabeth (near the elbow). Annabeth is able to easily pry the statue's severed arm's grip from her wrist, even though the fingers and thumb weren't broken at all, meaning she could have easily freed herself at any time.

Question: Why is the hydra able to spit fire, when it suppose to be a water creature?

Answer: Water creature? The Hydra is a MYTHOLOGICAL creature, with many different variations in different stories. She lived in a swamp, had bad breath. This is just another different interpretation of the same Greek myth.
