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.

Yikes. I've sat through Percy Jackson before with my kids, so I had some idea of what to expect. But even so, this was a little hard to take. They seemed to enjoy it, though, and that's why we go, right? When the story wasn't over-the-top silly, it wasn't too bad. That's about the best way I could describe it.

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.

I am a fan of these movies. I really enjoy each of them and can't wait for the next one to come out. I just wish there could have been more special effects. But I understand these movies are geared toward children, so I took it for what it is. I still enjoyed it greatly.

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!
