me and my boys really enjoyed it!

took my 13, 10 and 7 year old boys to see this...they ALL read the books and had seen the first one. it was a MUCH bigger hit than the first with them...kept to the story a lot more (only one big deviation that we could recall)...and was fast-paced and funny with amazing graphics! it's very "fictional" as far as all the greek mythology that the books are based on...lots of wild creatures and things like that...but that would be expected for fans of the books. not really scary...my 7 year old sees lots of PG/PG-13 movies being a 3rd child, and he didn't bat an eye during this one...but there are a few "stressful" scenes (i'd describe them as that more than scary) if you have a young one who gets anxious. overall, a dramatic improvement from the first...and a good, fun summer movie!!

Good movie

The movie was good and continues on with the storyline but leave it open to go into the next book. Lots of action but the first one was better.

Nice mythological references, cool effects in 3D

Having not seen the first one yet, I can't comment on how it compares. The characters are likeable enough and the effects and 3D are enjoyable. While nothing super new here, it's enjoyable fare and Greek mythology lovers or D&D fans will appreciate some of the monster references in particular.

Don't Bother

We really enjoyed the first Percy Jackson movie, as did our 3 sons. Sadly, this movie was nowhere nearly as good as the first one. Our 15 and 13 year olds said this was "one of the worst movies ever..." I would have to agree, despite some of the funny moments and excellent special effects, this movie was just not worth the time or the expense.
