Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters is the best movie I’ve seen all summer! I read the books (which are very good), so I had to see this movie. I didn’t like the first one much because it wasn’t close to the book among other things. This film is much better then the first one. It’s filled with quick come backs and funny lines. It has great action and fantasy elements that interweave with a strong story plot. The water horse was magical and pulled you into the Greek myths. I laughed many times and was excited about what might happen next. The Firefly reference was classic.
I would have liked Annabeth to be a little more powerful. At one point she was hiding when her book character wouldn’t have been. But Clarisse was a strong female character. Next time let’s have more then one please. Joss would agree.
Overall Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters was a really well done movie. I plan to get this one when it comes out on DVD and add it to my movie collection.

I loved The Lightning Thief and didn't read the books until after I saw that movie. I love the books and Sea of Monsters did not disappoint. It was a little slow in the beginning but picked up well. I know they usually have to cut some out when they make a movie out of a book but I wish they didn't. I was looking forward to Percy being turned into a rodent. :) Other than that, I loved it and I look forward to the next ...

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 am a fan of these movies. I really enjoy each of them and can't wait for the next one to come out. I just wish there could have been more special effects. But I understand these movies are geared toward children, so I took it for what it is. I still enjoyed it greatly.

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!
