Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters Movie Review


Firstly this should be called Sea of Monster (not plural) as there is only one! Secondly this is kiddy sequel follow up by numbers. Safe, predictable going from A to B to C. The shield that protects their camp is destroyed by poisoning some mystical tree, so they go on a very long quest to get the golden fleece to heal the tree and bring the shield back up (although this won't stop someone from poisoning the tree again, but thats by-the-by). There is some good CGI and passable greek mythology inspired monsters. There were also some really dumb moments when the demi-gods forget they have powers and stand around hugging while the Titans are brought back to life! Also the demi-gods seem to forget the Titans snack on children, yet insist on resurrecting them, derrrrr! Anyways this will be entertaining to the under 10s, but pretty mind numbing for everyone else, DVD job I think.
