I haven't read the books and didn't have any expectations before seeing the movie. My 7 year old son, however, is a big fan, so I took him. He said this was the best movie he's ever seen, and we're going to see it a second time today. I enjoyed the movie - great special effects and fun character portrayals. My son loved the battle on the yacht scene. My son is on the third book, The Titan's curse, and can't wait for that movie to come out. I would say anyone who likes action adventure films would find it enjoyable.

The movie was great. I personally didn't read the books but the movies are pretty good in my opinion. Definitely a must see. Family friendly as well.

Visually exciting...if you hadn't read the books. But silly. It took the remaining four Percy Jackson and the Olympians books, threw out a lot of plot line and compressed it into one movie...with strange elements. I saw the first movie and used that to justify reading the books. So now I know how poorly the producers have degraded the film project.

Awesome movie! Good plot with tons of high-energy scenes! Kept this "old lady" wide awake for the 10 pm showing. ;-) (Also kept our 10-yr old up most of the night. Maybe a bit too action-packed for her.) Good to see Annabeth as a blonde like the book said. Will be buying a copy when it comes out!

If you seen part 1 it was better, Sea of Monsters was also good.
If you like Harry Potter this movie is for you. 4 stars
