Took my 15 year old son to see this movie because we had seen the first one. Great movie. Hopefully the next one won't take 2 years like this one did.

I didn't read all of the books and I enjoyed the movie. The movie though didn't have good acting, it was even painfully awkward at times. But it did have its moments. Stanley Tucci for example was one of those moments. He was hilarious. I loved his character. On the other hand, my sister who has read and loved the book series did not like the movie one bit. She was upset that they changed so much. I say wait till it comes out on redbox. It's a good clean family movie so that would be the upside. There were a few kids in the audience who enjoyed it. I love Logan Lerma but this movie just wasnt his best.

If you like Harry Potter, you MAYBE like this movie also. Story is predictable, nothing surprise. The only interesting thing is when they call "Percy" in the movie, sounds like "Pu*sy". LOL.

Went with kids and hubby. The kids loved it, my daughter says 5 stars out of 5. My son has read the books (the only one out of all of us) and he said it was not completely accurate with the books but that was ok with him. Some kids got up and clapped after the movie.
For my husband and I it was mildly entertaining and knowing nothing about the books it was still easy to follow.
We usually reserve going to see movies in the theatre for a big blockbuster but glad we went for the kids this time as they had a wonderful time :) If it was me only, I would have waited for it to come out on DVD or on demand.

It's much better than the first one, even if a lot cheesier. Some special effects are kinda meh, but it's still a lot of fun. Even my grumpy boyfriend loved it a lot and asked if we'd see it again!
