The movie flip-flops on whether cyclopes can pass through the barrier surrounding the camp. Tyson could do so on his own, due to being a son of Poseidon, while the cyclopes who killed Thalia could not. In the original books, as in Greek mythology, all cyclopes were sired by Poseidon, meaning any of them could've entered the camp at any time, according to the reasoning used for Tyson. See more »

Keying in my first review in IMDb after watching a premiere show for the first time.
Percy Jackson: Sea Monsters is a decent effort as a sequel to the lighting thief. It is not entirely necessary to watch the first part to watch. The story is good on its own. However I did notice that there were many dialogs just out of line. The script might have over worked to make it humorous.
The visual effects are not up to the mark overall but some places are pretty sweet and worth watching in 3D otherwise the depth is not that great. With that one can easily notice work of CG in not so important parts of the movie.
The actors have done well and delivered the script good that the subtle jokes and wits were understood and 95% effective. I was pretty much impressed by the actress in the lead and supporting roles than the men.
Overall, the movie is a good watch but not a great effort. If you really into 3D movies, I would watch in on the big screen with the expectation some weakness in CG. Otherwise I would wait for BluRay. I give it a 7 of 10.
