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 »
Nearly all of the principal characters in the first Percy Jackson movie returned for this sequel Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters. The one notable exception was Pierce Brosnan and his role as a centaur is now played by Anthony Head.
Young Logan Lerman has come to grips with his semi-divine nature and he now lives in the camp his mother brought him to in the first film, a place with a barrier put there by Zeus to protect the demi-gods from those on the outside who wish to do them harm. That first film taught us there were many.
Now the barrier has been smashed and the tree that gave it life is dying. To save the tree and the camp Lerman goes on a quest for the legendary Golden Fleece which can heal all things. His is the second quest, another demi-god kid Leven Rambin who is most competitive with Lerman is taking her own team.
And there's Jake Abel who is another demi-god kid who went over the dark side in the first film. He's back with his own agenda and it involves nothing less than destroying the community of immortals on Olympus.
One new regular came on board here. I was really impressed by young Douglas Smith in his portrayal of Tyson who is a half brother to Lerman and a young cyclops. He was very charming in a goofy sort of way and proves to be valuable in the clinch.
As I wrote in the first Percy Jackson film, the Lightning Thief it's good entertainment and if it gets kids interested in classical Greek history and mythology so much the better. Sea Of Monsters continues in that tradition.
