Warning Spoilers: My brothers and I went to the midnight premiere. The last midnight premiere was the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1 so I was expecting huge lines and huge crowds. There were maybe 20 people in all by the time the movie started. It was pretty empty. Although I couldn't make myself read past the first book (the idea that the main character is only 12 bothers me), I thought the movie was great. The scene where Zeus's daughter is killed by a cyclops is amazing. You can watch her last thoughts past through her eyes. The graphics throughout the whole movie were great. My only problem is that Kronos is defeated too easily by Percy. Kronos is a titan after all.

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.

A light hearted romp of 'urban fantasy'.

While its not strictly following the books, it engages and entertains for the younger crowd. Lots of fun points and some heartwarming moments, along with enough changes from the books that you keep wondering what is going to happen next.

This is a Must See Movie!!

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters was Fantastic and the Soundtrack, including "I Feel Alive" by Tiff Randol was beautiful. Thor Freudenthal did a great job directing the movie and I loved all the special effects. My favorites were the Seahorse and the Sea of Monsters scene. I love Greek Mythology and anything that gets young people interested is something to be supported. Thanks Fox for another fun movie!

The one liners were ongoing and hilarious! The problem is that Percy was much younger in the books. While I understand that in order to keep Logan and the other main actors in place, some adjustments had to be made. I, as an older reader, enjoyed it. However, faithful younger readers may be somewhat disappointed in this and subsequent films. Those who have not read the books, should not assume that the films are for younger audiences.
