Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters

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. 

Percy has had an unnervingly quiet school year. But then he discovers that the magical borders protecting Half Blood Hill are failing. Unless something is done, the camp will be attacked by demons and monsters. The only way to restore power to the camp's borders is to find the Golden Fleece.

From the director of Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

After the disappointment of Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief, Diary of a Wimpy Kid director Thor Freudenthal delivers a much-improved rendering of Rick Riordan’s books. This time the teen demigods must save a magic tree at Hogwarts - er, Camp Half-Blood - by undertaking the perilous journey to the titular Sea of Monsters (aka The Bermuda Triangle) to fetch The Golden Fleece. As you do…

Sickening

A raspberry that is a slight on the movie industry. Why do this and then expect people to put up with it. Just carbage, nothing in this movie was worth watching. The acting was appaling the story line even worse then the first one and that was positively evil. Lazy scripting had part time wannabe actors running around bumping into each other with stink CGI...

Worth a Gander

Probably the worst action hero name in the history of fictitious hero names Percy Jackson’s latest adventures, are actually mildly entertaining. Keep in mind that this movie is firmly targeted at sweaty, prepubescent pimply boy’s and slightly less sweaty but equally spotty girls and you start to appreciate the tone of the movie. Although not the target...

Percy thief lightning monster?

Great book series (so I understand), and the films kinda flop on these. The first was a good intro, character, plot, etc, however I found this a little boring. Great effects and story was cool, just felt missing something special and unique just to this. I wonder if they'll do another? Genre : Fantasy, action, book adpatation, family 2/5 : Still a great...

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.
