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.

Like the first movie (the Lighning Thief), this one took quite a few liberties with the original book, but i don't think the story suffered at all for it.
While I loved Pierce Brosnan as Chiron, I think Anthony Stewart Head's portrayal is closer to his character in the books. Stanley Tucci is great as Mr D!
Not sure about the casting for Clarisse and Tyson-they're both too attractive for their characters, if you're looking for faithfulness to the books, but I think they work in the context of the movie taken as an independent work.
The special effects were great, especially the hippocampus and Colchis bull.
All in all, well worth seeing for fans of the series. I just hope they can get the rest done before the cast gets too old!

Read all the books, saw the first movie. It was a disappointment! Sea of Monsters was perfect! Realistic special affects, believable camp, followes book details better than first movie. Actors were believable, also. Well directed Kronos scared my granddaughter, she said he wasn't that scary in the book! Good entertainment!

My 13 yr. old and 10 yr. old grandkids and my husband and I all thought it was great! Wonderful for kids and adults alike. But like it was said before, this is a movie not a book. You will be delighted by this wonderful movie with great effects and its good CLEAN fun for the whole family for a great change. I was not disappointed at all and we all had smiles on our faces when we left!
