the movie makes it look like that everyone that worked on the film never even heard of Rick Riordan. The film vaguely met big events in the book, but it also missed a lot of big events too. This movie is an insult to the whole Percy Jackson fandom and to Rick Riordan.

Very quite good in its own way. I haven't read the book, but if I ever do and re-watch this, I might change my opinion. Saw it on Netflix and I remember watching the first Percy Jackson film 7 years ago and I really enjoyed it and loved it! I enjoyed this one too!

But I somehow feel as though the First one was better than this one, it had a little less action into it and the plot was ok to me. What I don't understand is why they stopped making the rest of the Percy Jackson series? I would of loved to watch them at least.

While better than The Lightening Thief, this film still lacks of the charm, action, fantasy, and comedy from the books.

For being based off of a book, it sure did not stay true to the plot of its predecessor. Missing events such as the real Circe's Island, the opening dodgeball game with the giants, and the sirens, just to name a few, this movie was a complete trash heap compared to the cornucopia of the book. The visual affects crew could have also easily made these scenes, but for some reason they didn't. This movie could have been much better if they had just stuck to the script of the book even remotely. They could have also had success as a bigger series. I hope to see this mistake made right by someone like netflix who can make a series of not just the Percy Jackson series, but also the Heroes of Olympus storyline, as well as the Kane Chronicles. However, if you have never read the book then this would be a decent movie, but if you did read the book your hopes have probably been smashed into millions of pieces.

It is an awesome family movie in the world of fantasy...

This was good, I quite liked the plot, however the acting made it a kids film. I know it is a kids film but it was made for kids only I think. The Lightening Thief was better imo.

This movie is even worse then the first one and as a fan of the books it is nothing alike them the acting is terrible, the story and everything.

It looks rotten but it's got Alexandra Daddario in it and that alone deserves a star.

Had some fun moments. But overall poorly made.

12/10/2016: An ok movie. While it was just ok, I still hope there is another film to close out the trilogy.

This movie made me, a Percy Jackson fan, very sad. From a casual viewer standpoint, the movie isn't too bad, just a little rushed and poor acting at times. But from a PJ gan standpoint, this movie was terrible. The movie was filled with inaccuracies after inaccuracies. I'm gonna say the bad first, then get to the limited good. The movie was so rushed with plot, that the characters feel boring and we don't get to understand them. A movie like this should be at least over 2 hours because of all the story. But instead, the director decides to just cut those scenes out. Percy going to a normal school with tyson as his main friend, grover looking for pan, percy NOT knowing his destiny from the oracle until later, circe's island, chrion's family, the sirens, annabeth tricking polymorpheus by calling herself nobody, and luke having an entire cruise ship, rather than a yacht. All of those things were not in the movie. Instead, percy finds out his prophecy IN THIS MOVIE, his time comes when he turns 20, not 16, grover was captured by luke, and oh yeah, kronos was successfully brought back then sealed back in his coffin within minutes. Now to the good things, Dionysus was perfectly cast and portrayed, chiron was pretty good, they managed to fix some things from the last movie, hermes was great, and clarisse was fine. I really hope they don't continue this series because nobody can get it right. You only get one chance at a first impression, and this movie failed making a good first impression, unlike something like harry potter.

I would've liked it a bit more... if it actually followed the books.
½ November 5, 2016
While it's basically going through the motions, PJ&TSOM is fun and definitely a movie for fans of the amazing books that deserve soooo much better. But hey! I was just hoping it'll follow the books and be better than Lighting Bolt Thief. Sooo... I'm satisfied

"B" is my final grade

All and all its good movie.

I like this teen Greek demi-god series.

After reading the books and seeing the first movie, I had much higher hopes for this film. The acting and special effects were good, but the plot was underdeveloped and strayed too far away from the already in place story line in the book. As well, the actors are much too old to portray the supposedly thirteen year olds of the story.
