...impressively fares almost as well as its above-average predecessor...

the film might have been more charming with Ray Harryhausen effects than with CGI

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters doesn't present a world with depth or originality... but as far as cinematic adaptations of young adult novels go, it thankfully strikes the right tone."

Movie Metropolis

A good special effects family movie that's every bit as accomplished as 'The Lightning Thief' and possibly better-even if it doesn't follow the fantasy novels like a road map.

There is plenty of action, the acting is good and the story is good enough to get by. It is not a bad film. It is about like the first film in the series.

A fine follow-up to the first film in the franchise. The series doesn't regress, but it doesn't improve much either.

December 15, 2013

More pretty good, if forgettable FX-driven franchise fodder...proficiently directed...also features the ever-surprising Stanley Tucci, who sports the latest in a long line of formidable movie wigs.

These are broad pulp action scenarios that feel sweet, well-worn, and kind of timeless.

A brisk and fun stand-alone adventure that again blends in clever nods to familiar Greek mythology as well as plants promising seeds for larger arcs.

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters is harmless fun, visually exciting and breezy enough to both enthral its tween audience and hold the attention of accompanying adults.

Worthy adaptation of the Rick Riordan novel, and should set up the next installment in the series.

With a complete change in creative personnel and adjusted expectations Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters is a noticeable improvement over the first adventure, but it's still awkward and unsure of itself.

A smart, derivative load of Bulfinch, its director Thor Freudenthal has a name perfectly suited to link the mythical and the psychoanalytical.

There can't have been a very big demand for a sequel to 2010's The Lightning Thief, but at least this is another adequate adventure for the teen demigods.

What it had going for it, though,is that is has the Greek myths, which form the raw material of the story and have enthralled humankind for several thousand years.

While Percy didn't give me a day-long headache like The Wolverine, accepting the extra [3D] dimension distracts from concentrating on who's who.

Interesting. A film based on Greek mythology is done by a guy named Thor.

Not every demographic will embrace it, but it should find a solid audience with younger movie fans. Older moviegoers who are tired of this summer's action films with dark tones can find some light relief with Percy and the gang.

Precious little about this is particularly memorable, but it's the odd touch of local color that makes these routine acts of derring-do a bit easier to bear.
