This is a awesome movie. This movie is in my top ten.

A little older, a little less humor, a little more responsibility and a lot more consequence. There’s more than a touch of the boy wizard’s magic (and a strong sense of deja vu) weaving throughout “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.” (Which is a bit strange, since this movie wasn’t actually directed by a “Harry Potter” director, unlike the first film.) “Sea of Monsters” will appeal to typical moviegoers in their teen years, but fans of the book may be disappointed or angered by some creative licensing that took place. After the viewing this critic watched, there were more than a few audience members grumbling about some of the drastic changes. Take that for what you will. “Sea of Monsters” could have used a bit of work, especially with some of its stale writing, but it was a solid follow-up, and it should sate the longing for those who miss their yearly Harry Potter movies. Worse could be said of a 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.

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!!

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.
