This film is just awful, plus the 3D was pointless. Percy Jackson is the yanks version of harry potter, but nowhere near in the same class, the 3D is one of the worst I have ever seen, with the background, which was so fuzzy and the actors heads looked all out of shape, if you love this film or just fancy giving it ago then the 2D version is a must.

[WARNING - Spoilers]

So I got this as a Christmas present, thinking that I would like it because I enjoyed the first one. The first one on had relatively minor plot deviations from the book, but this film is, as a film of the book, catastrophically inaccurate and actually spoiled the entire series of books. Kronos is not meant to rise (even a little) until the end of book 4, and Luke doesn't ambush them until they get back to the coast. Clarrise, in the book, isn't grateful to Percy even for a second, and yet she supports him in the film? It's just wrong, so as the film of the second book, I give it 1 star.

As a film in itself though, I give it a 3 or 4, because the special effects are good, and the storyline itself makes sense, and works. The main issue with the film is that it just doesn't follow the book.

If you have not read the books (and don't plan on), but like the idea and/or genre, then go ahead and watch it, its a fairly good film.

This is a tough film for me to review, my 2 boys (aged 9 and 10) loved the film and couldn't wait to watch it again so I am giving it a 5 as they are the target audience.

The special effects are great which gives believable bad guys for the heroes to defeat, easily.

For me the huge weakness lies in the fact they have ripped the heart out of the book, there is no character development and the important, and difficult, relationship between Percy and Tyson is pretty much brushed aside. This relationship, and how Percy struggled to come to terms with it, was one of the key themes of the book and it's removal just leaves us with a bit of an action movie.

For me, 2 stars.

A very good and exciting movie, although I am a 74 year pensioner, I still enjoy watching new and modern DVDs.

By Jules TOP 500 REVIEWER on 27 July 2014

Percy Jackson (Lerman) must go on a quest to retrieve the Golden Fleece from the Sea Of Monsters, in order to rejuvenate the protective barrier that keeps his home safe. However he is not the only one after it's restorative properties, as Luke (Abel) want's to use it to raise an ancient evil & punish their fathers. Can Percy get over his doubts about himself & save the day ?

Overall , Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters as a piece of entertainment is a pretty average effort. The lore is presented in an interesting manner, and they do try to maintain the pace of the film with some exciting meetings of bizarre characters along the way with some neat CGI, but even they soon lose they're luster with some tired jokes. As a result the journey feels a little stretched & all over the place as they cram the best noteworthy action scenes near the end that at least make it somewhat worth sitting through the previous meandering. The quest & prophecy seemed all too familiar & hard to get excited about. Much like the new characters who are a bit cliche with predictable learning curves , such as the cocky Clarisse & Percy's new Cyclops half brother Tyson, whose lacks confidence & self worth.

The acting was reasonably good, Logan Lerman as the unsure in his abilities Percy Jackson & Leven Rambin as the competitive Clarisse were very convincing in contrasting roles. Alexandra Daddario as Annabeth & Brandon T. Jackson as faithful sidekick Grover chipped in well. Baddie Jake Abel as Luke, wasn't all that memorable due to Clarisse's character being more stand out worthy & easy to root against. Anthony Head replacing Pierce Brosnan did break the continuity from the first film, replacing him made things harder to understand as someone who hasn't read the books or watched them in close succession.

I'm normally not one for film reviews as they can be so personal but on this occasion I thought I'd change that. I was somewhat looking forward to watch this having watched the first instalment recently on terrestrial TV. I felt it lacked the some qualities in the story line which did not seem to flow as well as the Lightning Thief. I suppose it I may have had to high an expectation since very few sequels are as good as the first. The cinemaphotography was good likewise the music but it lacked finesse overall.

This review is written from a book lover's perspective, because they've seriously messed up this series. However, I can say that the writers have at least tried to fix some of the issues caused by the disaster of the first film.
The overall tone is nice, the young demigod struggling with his power and his place within the world is appealing and for teens very relatable. And the fact that they've kept the story - the search for the Golden Fleece- pretty much the same is quite nice. I was annoyed with the lack of guinea pigs, but the wedding dress was a nice touch.
As I said, story was in line with that of the book and the characters followed closer to that of the 'Sea of Monsters' character development. While the cgi was really good and perhaps necessary, some probably found it too much. I liked it.
The acting isn't the best but you have to work with what you've been given. Logan L is nice to look at...
One thing I do like about this film - that definitely isn't in the books- is the fight at the end. While I dont approve of changing things to suit the writers' needs, I believe that from a cinematic point of view it provided a good climax for the film.
Overall, the books are a million times better, but if you want easy to watch, easy to follow fun, then this film is certainly for you.
