    There are plenty of bad films to get riled up about in the summer. Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters isn't one of them. This is harmless tween-centric fun. show more

    Nathan Fillion is the movie's brightest spot as Hermes, re-envisioned as a UPS manager. He makes a quip about how the best TV series always get canceled, in a nod to Firefly, the iconic sci-fi show in which he starred. show more

    There isn’t even an actual sea of monsters in “Sea of Monsters,” unless you count some fish guts. show more

    The Thor Freudenthal-helmed sequel lacks the energetic zip of its predecessor. show more

    It’s the odd touch of local color — like the backdrop of an abandoned amusement park, or the arrival of a Civil War steamer crewed by Confederate zombies — that makes these routine acts of derring-do a bit easier to bear. show more

    Marc Guggenheim's script is capable and funny, but the film's finest wit is vehicular. show more

    Tom Russo Boston Globe

    Director Thor Freudenthal (“Diary of a Wimpy Kid”) finds his groove with a succession of flashy 3-D renderings... They’re digitized riffs on the Sarlacc pit from “Star Wars” and the finale of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” — but as with the “Potter” cribbing, when it’s done well, it encourages “Percy” audiences to forgive the derivative chunks and thin emotion. show more

    This "Percy Jackson" is a gentler-spirited, less flashy enterprise, though it still presents a natural world that can morph at the whim of a god. I like that. show more

    The big action set pieces fizzle. And that’s not good for a fantasy adventure movie, especially when the fantasy component is frequently undercut by sub-standard special effects. show more

    The quest, which takes our heroes to the Sea of Monsters, aka The Bermuda Triangle, is generic in the extreme. The fights/escapes all lack any sense of urgency and peril. show more

    Okay, so we saw the reviews of this movi on here, and we saw it got a good rating. Then we went and saw it. Absolutely terrible movie! Few films manage to make you hate them within 15 minutes, but this one sure did. In short: Don\'t pay money to see this.

    this movie is a total and complete waste of time, the casting was all wrong, in the book the character of percy jackson is supposed to be 13 years old going into the seventh grade, the actor they used is 20+ years old, they only did a couple of scenes from the book and not well

    This is a great movie series that is not getting the attention it deserves. The story line is so much more interesting and imaginative than that of most movies. Also family friendly. AWESOME!
