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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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)

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

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

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

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.

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.'

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.

For the most part, the film's fusion of ancient myth and modern teen fantasy seems clumsy and forced, and the story's all-too generic quest narrative is muddled rather than engaging.
