The film turns around the Golden Fleece's ability to, "heal anyone or anything." It's not explained why Polyphemus, who wears the golden fleece over his shoulder, still has bad eyesight. But just because Polyphemus has bad eyesight by Human standards, it doesn't mean he doesn't have excellent eyesight by Cyclops standards. See more »
It's refreshing to see a relatively non violent adventure fantasy suitable for younger audiences again. Yet older audiences can enjoy it too. I actually prefer the story to the Hunger Games stories with all the killing.
The effects and creatures are slightly fake and unreal looking but it adds to the charm. Cute blending of mythology and the present story.
Logan Lerman still looks young enough for the role but Alexandra Daddario is looking a bit older.
I remember enjoying the first one slightly more with the novelty of the characters but this one is alright enough.
