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.

If you are going for the book, you will be disappointed. There are major changes from the book, but this is to be expected since the first movie did too. If you are going to see a good movie, you will be pleased. A good solid movie with the expectation of the rest of the series.

My 11 and 13 year old boys were in awe! They loved it more than PJ and the Lightening Thieves. Although both agreed the book was still better. 3D was worthwhile.

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.

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.
