I thought the first Percy Jackson movie was just ok so I didn't have high hopes for this one. However, I was pleasantly surprised. It was good with a moral story line and the special effects were nice. The lord of the Rings it is not but hopefully as they keep the Percy Jackson book series going, the films will get better too.

Loved it. Saw it in 3D so effects were even more exciting. If one liked the first in this series, then this one will be enjoyed also. Loved that they left opening for another sequel. Adults can find things to relate to and kids will love all the action. So yes this movie is good for ALL AGES.

This is the kind of money that is fun to watch from scene to scene because the actors are pleasant to look at and not doing anything offensive. They are, afterall, trying to save the world from the bad guys. In this case, it's no less than Kronos, father of Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades, who is about to be awakened by a spiteful teen villain. Had enough? Well, this is what you can expect from beginning to end. There are some ocean adventure scenes, but mostly it's just more of the same sort of Percy Jackson adventure we've come to expect. See it if you enjoy the franchise. You can expect it to be formulaic and not a particularly creative effort this time around.

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.

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.
