Decent Fun!
14 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The sequel to 2010's Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief has finally arrived and just like the first film, it offers a fun time amongst the world of Greek mythology. The Sea of Monsters continues the adventures of Percy Jackson and his friends and it was fun to watch in the process. Just like the first film, it doesn't follow the book too much closely. But does it really matter? The CGI is okay, the action is great, comedy is decent, and the screenplay leaves something to be desired.

Thor Freudenthal, who takes the reins from Chris Columbus, has Percy back at Camp Half-Blood thinking if he is a one-time wonder, but the chance comes along when the mystical tree guarding the camps begins to die. Percy, Grover, and Annabeth must travel across the Sea of Monsters in order to steal the Golden Fleece from Polyphemus, the famed Cyclops. With the fleece, they will be able to restore this "tree" whom happens to be Thalia, daughter of Zeus.

The acting is pretty good. The film doesn't have much as a stacked cast as the first film, but this cast holds it own. Logan Lerman is great as Percy and same can be said for Brandon T. Jackson and Alexandria Daddario in their respective roles of Grover and Annabeth. Stanley Tucci is excellent as the god of wine, Dionysus. Anthony Head is good as Pierce Brosnan's replacement as Chiron. Finally, Leven Rambin is a good pick-up as Clarisse, the tough warrior girl.

Overall, Sea of Monsters is relatively on par with the previous film. It's not going to light the world on fire by being the greatest fantasy film ever, but it does a good job in being entertaining and often funny. There is quite a bit of action to be had and I may be biased towards this film because I will love any film with elements of Greek mythology. It's not the best written film and it could have stayed closer to the source material, but there's no complaining about that now. I rate this film 8/10.
