While filming the yacht and lifeboat scenes, Alexandra Daddario learned she was prone to seasickness. Coincidentally, her character in the books becomes seasick on the Queen Anne's Revenge. See more »
The "Confederate zombie ship" that is supposedly the CSS Birmingham has a rotating radar antenna, an anti-aircraft flak gun (which later appears to be automatic) and WW2 style windows on the command bridge. Even within the fantasy presented by the film, there is no logical reason for this. See more »

A decent sequel
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.
