.....after the artistic liberties taken during the first Percy Jackson movie, there should be no surprises that the second one would follow down the same path. At least annabelle finally has the right hair & eye color. Definitely entertaining, excellent movie for teens, and worth watching once. If you're a riordan fan....check your expectations at the door and watch with an open mind....you'll enjoy the movie more!

As a big fan of the Percy Jackson book series, I did not enjoy the movie. Granted I have not read the book in a long time. However I didn't think that it was good. The action scenes had no sense of excitement to me and there were some parts that I was pretty sure not in the book, though it has been a while since reading it. There were also some parts in the book that I would have liked to have seen not in the movie. Also, the actors are too old. In the books, Percy and Annabeth are supposed to be around the age of 14 or 15. But Logan Lerman is 21 and Alexandria Daddario is 27

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 like the sci-fi movies..this one was so-so...good plot, several cheesy parts to it and left open for a sequel....I will watch future movies should their be a sequel but I'll watch it under redbox...no language like most movies so that was good.

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.
