The second Percy Jackson movie, based on Rick Riordan's urban fantasy teen novels. Son of Greek god Poseidon, Percy (Logan Lerman) ventures to the Sea of Monsters to find the mythical Golden Fleece.

From the director of Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

The legacy of Harry Potter

A blatant Potter wannabe, The Sea of Monsters is still a bit of fun. The characters are cliched beyond belief (Leven Rambin is mean, we get it) and the we've read the story a million times before. But, with brain switched off and popcorn ready, it's not so bad.

An epic showcase for mediocre CGI and slapdash screenwriting.

The final showdown whisks up the requisite excitement, but the open-ended coda feels like an optimistic throw of the dice from the franchise showing meagre signs of Harry Potter longevity.

There’s really nothing to recommend ‘Sea of Monsters’: the young cast are smug and forgettable; the action sequences barely get going before they’re over; and the whole affair is riddled with product placement and pop cultural references – one girl even seems to possess a magic iPad.

Diverting enough - the director, Thor Freudenthal, is savvy with effects and keeps his young cast on point.

Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters continues a tradition of adequacy that could be described as “epic-ish” or “majestic-esque.”

Buoyant effects help keep this sequel from being a noisily hit and myth proposition.

The CG does its part of the bargain, but even more than the brighter, breezier original this is a pale imitation of Potter.
