      I buy most of these types of movies mainly for their 3D appeal. In all cases, it's like watching an amped up Blu-Ray!! sometimes it feels like a whole new movie experience!! Depending on ones own 3D pros or cons( TV type, Glasses used, etc.); I feel having a choice, the additional cost of buying a 3D version of a movie is the way to go. I have both Active and Passive glasses paired with TVs to match. When all the preceding comes to this movie; I enjoyed it. Not the greatest acting; but all actors can't be Oscar worthy. The story is acceptable for what it is....Sci-Fi. Just enjoy someones imagination with the special effects that this movie offers. Excellent!!! My biggest gripe with bonus features is that they should be in 3D with the 3D movie. Maybe that's asking too much?????

      Purchased after Watching Library Copy Many Times

      My 10 yr old daughter has read all of the books and we are not allowed to check the movie out from the library anymore since we've checked it out and renewed it the maximum number of times each time. We bought this as a Christmas gift w/ the digital copy so we could watch it on the go. Needless to say she was super excited when she opened it. If you like Greek Mythology at all, this is a very well done modernization of the stories. FX and CGI are really good. Story was well written with good continuity. All around a good movie with a good score.

      While this movie is clearly geared to the young adult/teen audience I found it a worthwhile watch despite the lack of sophistication;due to the great special effects and large scale use of 3d effects throughout the film. The comedic banter between characters keeps the mood of the movie light whereas I would find a more serious approach as that found in "the 300" or "the immortals" movies more entertaining, but that is clearly not the direction the filmmakers wish to go with this movie series.

      Saw the Sea what about the monsters?

      Ok, so I will admit up front that I have not read the books, but when the title hints at the Sea of Monsters, well one would surmise there would be adventure on the high seas involving monsters. Not so much in this case... The movie sets up some context for the narrative, but by the time the journey really begins, a short boat or Boats ride away you are at the finale. Simple Entertainment, but leaves more to be desired along with a cliff hanger with the potential for a continuation of the story... if this one made enough...

      Decent premise but suffers from 2nd movie blahs

      Drawing from Rick Riordan's series of books it continues to follow Percy. After saving the world in his first outing, saving the gods from an elder god does feel like more of the same. A few twists and plot devices lead to some development of the characters, but ultimately prove a bunch of teenagers to be, well, a bunch of teenagers. Filled with angst, worry, and bravado. It was enjoyable, but far from a classic.

      Fun movie but nothing like the source material

      It’s a fun movie that is filled with action,.. but don’t expect it to be like the book at all. Just like the first Percy movie this is an abomination of the story set up in the book. That said if you take it at it’s face value as a movie( or have never read the book) then it’s a fun action packed jaunt. Not great by any means, but still fun.

      A continuing saga

      This story picks up smartly from the previous story. It then lends some humor with the new half-brother to Percy. This new character is not one of the beautiful people that seems to pervade the camp population. Though rough and sometimes clumsy, he is likable since he comes off as more normal than the other camp prima-donnas . The large question mark at the end is: does Percy also have a sister? Stay tuned!

      Decent mythology-based fantasy for kids

      Probably made as an attempt to cash in on the popularity of other book-to-film adaptations based on children's and YA series (Harry Potter, Hunger Games, etc) - this series does not reach that standard of quality. FX are OK in some areas, poor in others. Acting is OK but the story feels a little disjointed. I suspect it's more enjoyable if you've ready the books first.
