In order to restore their dying safe haven, the son of Poseidon and his friends embark on a quest to the Sea of Monsters to find the mythical Golden Fleece while trying to stop an ancient evil from rising.
In his homeland of Alagaesia, a farm boy happens upon a dragon's egg -- a discovery that leads him on a predestined journey where he realized he's the one person who can defend his home against an evil king.
In this retelling of Rick Riordans book, "The Sea of Monsters", Percy Jackson, accompanied by his friends Annabeth Chase, Clarisse La Rue and Tyson, his half brother, goes on a journey to the Sea of Monsters to retrieve the Golden Fleece and save Camp Half-Blood. Written by
Mr. D, or Dionysus, as Stanley Tucci makes his first appearance in the films after the character written out of Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. See more »
Street scenes supposedly in Washington, DC show wires for electric trolley buses. There are no such buses in DC. See more »
This is a bad idea.
You don't even know what I was gonna say.
You were going to say you're going after the fleece.
Actually, he was going to say we were.

I think that this movie being the second in the series kept to the book a bit more than it's prequel. Though I noticed quite a few discrepancies in the story (might not be using that word right.) Though as I did not check this off as having spoilers, I'm not going to say what they are so that more people can view my opinion, anyway though it did not make as much money box office as the first one, "Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief" or maybe there's no "and the" in the title but not too sure, anyway again, not I or any of my friends saw it in the theaters, though we did rent it and watch it at home and I'm not too sure but I don't think that counts as " box office" income or not. I also believe that if the producers or whomever had not waited so long to release the sequel, it would have received more income from theaters and rentals. I also believe that people should not compare this title to the Harry Potter series, as they are hardly alike at all other than being about a teenager with magical upbringings. If need be I would start a petition or something of the sort if the producers don't want to finish the series in films (dvds and whatnot) as I know a plethora of people that really enjoy the series and would pay the price for a ticket or rental. Anyway (I know I've said that word plenty of times in this post) I apologize for any errors in spelling or bad sentence structure, I'd like to think that I usually write rather well, but as I am using a mobile device, this review took quite some time to write and was a wee bit difficult. Thanks for reading and comment or email me if you'd like to discuss this topic in greater depth.
