Forget following the books, I gave up in the first movie trying to hold the series to the books, there were too many major deviations from the book. As a stand alone movie, Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters is just plain fun and entertaining with lots of action, great summer fare. Bring the kids and grab some popcorn with m & ms and enjoy it!

I took my son and four of his friends to the movie. It was clean and there were a couple of places were they attempted to be funny. The animation was incredible, but it seemed like some of the boys were a bit disappointed. They thought they left some important details out from the books and changed the plot a bit. I thought it was enjoyable though.

This is a solid if not superior follow-up to the first Percy Jackson movie. I am not here to talk about the merits of the series of books or movies, but if you are into the Percy Jackson thing you will like this. Sticklers who read the book may be disappointed that all of the material was not in the movie, but such is always the case. If you like Percy, go see it.

My 14 year old son was completely into the movie. There is just the right amount of darkness without being threatening. The animated characters were creative and not too realistic. The story line at the camp was annoying. I realized it reflects a lot of egos, but no leadership was present to direct the energy. I realize that the movie is from a book series that has already been written. That is why a little less time developing the annoy camp would have been nice. It will not stop us from seeing the next movie. I am not sure if we will add this movie to our movie library.

Was very good! It was an adventure and the acting was well done. And who wouldn't be cheering on Percy and his friends! Some creepy parts - I wouldn't want to take a younger child to. But my teen daughter and I enjoyed it a lot!
