I don't even know where to start. If you read my review of the first film, you know that I thought it was just okay. This film on the other hand is a slap in the face to devoted fans of the series. The acting is okay, the characters are boring, the dialogue is awkward, and the effects are crappy. I couldn't believe how terribly adapted the book was. This isn't a cinematic abomination or anything, but the people behind this film clearly didn't learn from their previous mistakes. It's good that Alexandra Daddario dyed her hair blonde to resemble Annabeth, but really she just could've kept it brown. If you wanted to match the character, why wait until the second film? Clarisse was added, even though she's mainly just for comedic purposes, and Mr. D was funny. But there's one problem: they were supposed to be in the first film! Tyson is pretty bland, and Grover is a doofus. Percy is even less interesting than he was in the first film, and Luke is a doofus, too. They also brought the Mist into the series finally, but what they do with it is so stupid. There's a scene in which Annabeth sprays, yes, SPRAYS some Mist on Tyson to make him look more human, and that's not even the worst part. Later on there's this mythical being with several hands working at a coffee shop, and when people look at him, he appears human. That's how the Mist is supposed to work. It's basically supposed to make humans see normal things to keep the mythical world a secret. So what was the point of spraying Tyson with the Mist like a freaking cosmetic product, when in another scene it works the way it's supposed to?! These are adults who made this film, guys. Adults! I've ranted long enough about this film. Due to my love for the books, I don't mind watching it sometimes and it's definitely better than The Last Airbender. But the first film is obviously better and these people clearly don't know how to adapt books into film. Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters is another missed opportunity.
