Seeing kids grow up and become full-fledge demi-gods -working out good verses evil is a great way for young people to pick a side - hopefully to do the right thing.
The movie was exciting -fighting without the gore.
The teen boys and girls were friends - not romantically involved - another way to show respectful relationships.
3D was good -but not needed to enjoy the movie.

The movie was really good better than the first. However the producing group that produced it should not change the events of the story or major details from the books, such as Annabeth's hair!!! If you haven't read the books or haven't in a long time (like for me it's been 3 years) its a really good movies, and even if you have read them recently then you will like it too, but you may have to over look the fact that some of the foundations of the movie or details that are important for the story are changed.
Defiantly for all ages, from 5 to 16 to 50.

The movie is good; helps to know your mythology to fill-in some of the blanks. Action should keep the action. Subtle humor is good, but did go over the heads of most of the audience I sat with. Reccommend this one for fun.

My kids loved the first one and they loved this one too. I did not,read the books but I find these movies enjoyable. I agree with others that if they wait to long to make another these actors will be 50! I loved the 3D. I can't wait to see what happens next. The cyclops was cool.

Jordan and I saw this movie after seeing Elysium. It was a good double feature movie.
I enjoyed the first movie better. I was moved to read the book after however, I'm no longer that into this series.
This movie seemed to empathize character development over CGI special effects, which is admirable, however, I was not pulled into the characters nor did I become engaged with the drama.
Throughout the movie I kept feeling like one of the characters actor was replaced from the first movie. I'm unsure if that is true, but this concern distracted me from the story and enjoying the movie.
