We took 3 boys, ages 9-12. Big fun, and age-appropriate! The trailer ads were geared towards a much younger audience (think 3+), so one would think they're about to see lighter fare. But due to a few somewhat scary scenes (a Cyclops that died twice but came back to life each time, some half-bloods thrown to and fro, and a giant demon-like creature) Percy: Sea is more appropriate for 8+. Percy: Sea's level of intensity and CG effects are on par with the 'first' Harry Potter, so rather enjoyable for kids and parents alike. I'd rate this as being worthy of a Matinee. Not 'OMG' enough for a $75 night out. It's PG rating is well-fitted.

Well done. Their creatures and costume makeup were really amazing, some of the best I've seen. The story was a good one, the action not too overboard as some get. The acting was professional and interesting. My daughter thought the Kronos scenes not well developed and somewhat disappointing. I would have to admit I agree - re-instilling life into an immortal would seem to have led to the release of much more power and vengeance. And subsequently, much more difficulty involved in terminating that power, just saying.

My daughter has been reading the Percy Jackson series in third grade and got me into it. The movie was fairly true to the book with some "extras" added in for dramatic effect. Great movie to see with your kiddos before school starts back!

Great movie for tweens and teens. Based on Rick Riordan book series. Action and monsters with a mix of Greek mythology thrown in for educational purposes. Must see for kids and adults alike.

This was a very enjoyable movie. It was action filled and I feel there was a message of friendship and how precious that is. Three of us went and the age was from 74 to 14. We all enjoyed it, so it is definitely a movie for all ages. I highly recommend it.
