If your kids love Percy Jackson, they will not be disappointed. The movie is enjoyable and the story moves along quickly. The special effects are pretty good and the kids laughed in all the right places. The movie is a bit different from the book. No Circe's island or Tantalus but enough is the same to keep everyone happy.

Nice storyline continuity between the PJ Lightning Thief and this movie. Very entertaining and fun to watch. This one is better than the Lightning Thief. Although, cheessy / corny CGI on some scene and also cool scenes on some.
Percy Jackson is the American version of Harry Potter with 6/7 books. A must see for PJ fans.

If you already read the books that are basis for these movies, save yourself ten bucks and stick to the idea that these movies could ever be as good as the books. Fortunately, the first Percy Jackson movie wasn't that bad, despite missing some key things, the movie created a stable foundation for the hope that the next movie to come would be even better. However, Sea of Monsters fell tragically short of my expectations. Granted, I have read the books and most of them are 300 pages or longer and to hope that every detail would be in the movie is asking a lot. But when the directors and screenplay writers cut some of THE MOST IMPOTANT DETAILS IN THE ENTIRE BOOK, it's absolutely ridiculous. Besides, even though the special effects and cinematography were alright, the acting lagged in some places. Finally, to make the movie more appealing to all ages the directors decided to make Percy older by four years which you can take either way, but again it changes around a lot of details.

I went to go see it with the hope that it would make up for the murder of the first movie, but was greatly disappointed. I went with my friend who had not read the book, and she thought it was really good, so if you haven't read the book series, go right ahead and see it, but if you have read the book series, I would recommend re reading the books instead, or make your own version of the movie. If you go see this movie, you will be sitting in the movie theater wanting to yell so loudly on how badly the screen writer and the director screw this movie up, buy once again changing major points in the storyline.

The movie picks up from the 2nd of five books in the first series. Fortunately the director trated the story more seriously than the first, picking up missed clues and information that were not in the first lightning thief. For those who have not read the books, the movie is entertaining with some good special effects. For those who have read the book, the movie follows the story somewhat, but leaves out large chunks and rewrites many of the scenes.
