The movie was enjoyable w/ plenty of action but it can be a bit cheesy and predictable. It could be a rental but if you are really into Greek mythology, I say go for it....

Great book - poor movie

By chrisallan03
We were excited to see the New Percy Jackson movie. Unfortunately we came away very disappointed. The characters just lacked any depth. It felt like they were just going through the motions....

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters has amazing special effects; but also a few very poor attempts at humor, an absolutely idiotic scene in a taxicab, and the magic Disneyland to a ladybug. Much of the...

Definitely a grade "C"

By taterlaw
This movie was not true to the book so fans of the book might be disappointed by the huge plot details that were revealed too early. Other than that the CGI was great and the dialogue was okay too....
