Why is that the Percy Jackson movies cannot live up to the potential offered in Riordan's books?

The Percy Jackson books are beloved by so many. The first book was one of the most popular books in 2005. So far, two of the books (The Lightning Thief & The Sea of Monsters), have been made into movies, and they have both received mixed reviews, not being nearly as popular as the books themselves. What are the producers doing wrong?

    I definitely understand what you are saying. As much as I would be willing to watch a movie based on every word of a book, most people are not. Money is another understandable factor. Very good rebuttal. :)
