A slight but fun romp through Greek mythology with a modern twist...Grown-ups will hate it, but tween-age kids will have a blast.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

CG spectacle trumps character but, as engineered market-fillers go, it's at least cheerfully cheap and not unlikeable: a Poundland Potter, as it were.

For the majority of Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, the titular character spends his time moping over the uncertainty of his heroism.

A kitsch-fest; a kit-and-caboodle thematic ransacking sellout, geared to drain your kiddie dollars. Like a city dump, you can find anything in there-but would you want to?
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

It's still a fun adventure for tweens and early teens, but Percy and co are just going through the motions rather than stepping up.

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters is 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 Rick Riordan juvenile fantasy novels like a road map.

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

the film might have been more charming with Ray Harryhausen effects than with CGI
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

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."

With sequels of this type, we tend to see the stakes raised and the action increased to even more exciting levels than before, but for "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters," things are pretty much the same, but somehow made even blander than before.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
December 17, 2013
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.

December 15, 2013
A fine follow-up to the first film in the franchise. The series doesn't regress, but it doesn't improve much either.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
September 29, 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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

If PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS: THE LIGHTNING THIEF gave a studio hope enough to jumpstart this franchise then PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS ensures that it 'sleeps with the fishes.'

The thin, silly story stretched into a showcase for visual and special effects left me even colder than the cinema (VMax 2, Event, Sydney)
September 15, 2013
The vivid fantasy visuals provide wonderful imagery in this sequel about demi-gods and their quests, although to its detriment, the film is plot heavy and lacking in its emotional arc. It is pretty silly, too
September 13, 2013
These are broad pulp action scenarios that feel sweet, well-worn, and kind of timeless.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

Only the brightest colors of the Crayola box are used, whether to sketch out the characters' motivations or illuminate the cartoony visual effects.

September 2, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 26, 2013
The most memorable scene doesn't showcase Confederate zombies or the reawakened Kronos but 'Firefly' star Nathan Fillion as Hermes, god of speed, dressed like a parcel messenger and bemoaning the fact that the best TV shows are 'of course, canceled.'
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
