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.

Saw Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters for the first time, and it was a very well made movie! The actors were very well chosen, and they acted very well. The creativity in this movie was a bit different, but it made it more interesting. It was intense and pulled the watcher into a world full of half-bloods and monsters, as though you were there with the characters and felt all the same emotions and the rush of excitement when a monster came along. :) I've read all the books, and it was pretty accurate except for a scene or two. It was fantastic, and I hope more people will enjoy it as I have! I hope the rest of the movies are as brilliant (and more so) as this one is! There is no inappropriate content, and I think all the stuff they put into this movie was necessary, and made it worthwhile!

I loved the special effect and CGI in this film. The set designs and cinematography were very good. This is a film for kids at the age of seven and above. There are some scary parents that may not be acceptable for children younger that that age. I wasn't too filmier with this cast. They did a good job; but no-one stood out or gave an over the top performance. The director did a good job of keeping the storyline moving along at an acceptable pace. There were a couple of screens that I felt were just for fill and to take up time and had no real purpose to enhance the script. All in all it was rather entertaining and if you have nothing to do on an afternoon then go and give it a watch.

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!

This was a fun movie to see. It had a good underlying message to not judge others by outward appearances too. Definitely a good movie choice!
