I'm not familiar with the books at all, had seen the first movie at home, took the grandkids to see this one. They seemed to like the first movie better, but I'd say they were about the same quality. Great CG graphics, simple story, decent acting, nothing great guns, just an easy entertaining movie for the family.

I absolutely love the series, and though the Lightning Thief didn't stay very true to the book, it was still a good movie. Unfortunately, because of that, many people didn't see the Sea of Monsters. I'm here to say that it is SO WORTH IT. The Sea of Monsters was literally perfection and it is staying true to the book for the most part. You must see it. I really hope they continue to make the rest of the series.

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.

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.

This was a surprisingly great movie! Before tickets were purchased, I asked one of my sons if I should have seen the first movie or read the first book (Lightning Thief) before seeing this movie. He said yes. But, thanks to the "recap" at the beginning of this movie, I was able to catch-up with the story line and not feel like I was lost. This movie's plot was excellent, and the acting was well done. Everyone slightly interested in seeing this movie just has to go and enjoy it!
