Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters Reviews
The best thing about this predictable film is undoubtedly the special effects. For want of anything better, Sea of Monsters is a mishmash of various similar films in this genre and a passable potpourri of Greek mythology retold with a contemporary veneer.
If you are a fan of the books, then curiosity might tempt you to check this out, otherwise go revisit the Harry Potter series!
Like yours truly, if you are not familiar with the franchise, there is way too much goobledygook in the film. There isn’t a great deal of excitement in the story nor do the action scenes grab your attention. Since the film was converted and not shot in 3D, you wish they would have stuck to the conventional 2D instead of messing it up.
Sadly 'Sea of Monsters' is also a really terrible copy of 'Harry Potter', and with worse looking visual effects than the first film.
More than the plot of Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters, the CGI is more entertaining. But the 3D doesn’t add much to it. Logan Lerman as "Percy Jackson" is too bland and ordinary. Even the other characters are no better and that special charm is missing. The movie isn’t perfect in several ways as big parts of the book are missing yet is an enjoyable and harmless tween-centric outing.
