Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters

The second Percy Jackson movie, based on Rick Riordan's urban fantasy teen novels. Son of Greek god Poseidon, Percy (Logan Lerman) ventures to the Sea of Monsters to find the mythical Golden Fleece.

From the director of Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Diverting enough - the director, Thor Freudenthal, is savvy with effects and keeps his young cast on point.

Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters continues a tradition of adequacy that could be described as “epic-ish” or “majestic-esque.”

Buoyant effects help keep this sequel from being a noisily hit and myth proposition.

The CG does its part of the bargain, but even more than the brighter, breezier original this is a pale imitation of Potter.
