Goofs

In the Washington DC scenes, there are skyscrapers in the background. The Heights of Buildings Act of 1910, limits the height of building, the tallest being 210 feet, not the blue glass building shown in the background. See more »

Mr. D: [Mr. D poured some wine into a glass but it turned to water immediately - a punishment from Zeus] You know, the Christians have a guy who can do this trick in reverse,

Decent
7 August 2013 | by (U.S.) – See all my reviews

Right off the bat, I will answer one question I know many are dying to have answered: Did this one follow the book more? The answer: Yes . . . marginally.

I never hated the first movie for all of its deviations from the source material, but I can understand that some did. If the alterations made to the first movie annoyed you beyond belief, just know now that this movie only makes a slightly larger attempt to stick with Rick Riordan's material and you will probably not enjoy this movie much better than the first. If loyalty to the source material is not your first priority, I'd recommend you investigate this movie. You might just find yourself enjoying it.

The plot: Percy and his friends embark on a quest to save their home from being overrun by monsters. To do this, they must dive into the heart of the Sea of Monsters and retrieve a mythical object, The Golden Fleece, that has the power to restore power to the shields that protect their home.

NEGATIVES:

-Not enough time spent actually in the Sea of Monsters.

-A few corny lines of dialogue

-CGI wasn't always top-notch

-A few scenes left me wondering "what was the point of that?"

-The lack of Chris Beck's wonderful musical score, even though the new composer was alright.

POSITIVES:

+Good acting

+Lots of laughs

+Decent pacing

+Good character development

+Nathan Fillion

+The characters in the movie were all true to their book counterparts, even if a good piece of the plot wasn't

+A welcome amount of heartfelt moments

+Alexandra Daddario's beautiful eyes

Okay, that last one was just for me.

All around, it's a fun movie. The crowd that loves this movie will consist mostly of those who enjoyed the first movie, but anyone might as well check it out. There's a good chance you will be pleasantly surprised. (After all, how many movies are there to see in August? Really?)

Alright, Fox! Bring on "Titan's Curse!"
