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.
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.
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
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.'
