Product Description

The magical, mythical adventures of teenager Percy Jackson - son of the Greek god Poseidon - continue in this heroic, action-packed thrill ride! Out to prove he's not just a "one-quest wonder," Percy and his demigod friends embark on an epic, cross-country journey into the treacherous Sea of Monsters, where they battle terrifying creatures, an army of zombies, and the ultimate evil. With time running out, Percy must find and bring home the fabled Golden Fleece, which has the power to save his world...and save us all!

Amazon.com


















































The Percy Jackson series gives Greek mythology a contemporary reboot as a hesitant young man discovers he's the only son of the sea god Poseidon and has supernatural powers and wild adventures thrust upon him. In Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, the haven that protects Percy (Logan Lerman) and other demigods is threatened, potentially leaving them vulnerable to the titans and monsters that seek to destroy them. Only the healing power of the legendary Golden Fleece can save them. Clarisse (Leven Rambin), daughter of war god Ares, is chosen for this quest, but Percy and his friends Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario) and Grover (Brandon T. Jackson) set out after the Fleece as well, accompanied by Percy's unexpected half-brother Tyson (Douglas Smith), who just happens to be a cyclops. After the lackluster first movie, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters is palpably more energetic and a bit more true to the books (though some fans may wonder about one particular plot change towards the end of the movie). Don't expect much fidelity to the original mythology, but the narrative zips along and the fights provide suitable spectacle. Boosting the consistent action are a variety of star cameos, including Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games) as Dionysus (or "Mr. D") and especially Nathan Fillion (Firefly) as an entrepreneurial Hermes. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars Now this is more like it! August 10, 2013
By Joe
Format:Blu-ray
As a real fan of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series of books, I was somewhat disappointed with the first Percy Jackson movie because it strayed too much from the storyline and didn't have the right group dynamic between the characters. This second movie is much better, in my opinion, because it really draws you in by following the storyline from the book that made me want to read all seven books (multiple times!). This movie is great fun, and very exciting, with lots of twists and turns and special effects - I especially like the cab ride!

All in all, this movie is extremely enjoyable, and I highly recommend it for the whole family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Encourages Reading! August 2, 2013
Format:DVD
Here we go with the second chapter of this popular series, based on the book by Rick Riordan, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters. This time directed by Thor Freudenthal ("Diary of a Wimpy Kid") whose main job here seems to be producing Computer Generated Images... A movie based on a book this fantastical HAS to include CGI, so I'm not complaining...this time. Plus I appreciate the fact that kids are referred back to Greek mythology to read about the Golden Fleece.

The invisible shield that protects the half-bloods' safe haven has evaporated because the tree that created it is dying. Their only hope is the Golden Fleece because of its restorative powers.

Here they are again:
* Logan Lerman ("The Perks of Being a Wallflower") is Percy, our dauntless half-blood (his father is Poseidon, God of the Sea). He can (sometimes) control the seas...
* Alexandra Daddario ("Percy Jackson: Lightening Thief"), Annabeth is determined to retrieve the Golden Fleece. She is sort of a Hogwarts Hermione: she READS!
* Nathan Fillian ("Much Ado About Nothing") surprises us as a UPS guy/Hermes. His son Luke is mad at him... But he gives our hero some terrific packing tape!
* Stanley Tucci ("Hunger Games") is Dionysus. Zeus is still mad, so he turns his wine into water. He has heard Christians have a god who can do the reverse..."Now THERE is a God!"
* Brandon T. Jackson ("Tropic Thunder") is cloven-hoofed Grover, another half-blood and a loyal pal.
* Jake Abel ("I Am Number Four") is Hermes' son Luke; he looks like a young Kevin Bacon! He has serious daddy issues and goes to the Dark Side.

This has a PG rating, so expect no nudity, no profanity, a bit of vehicular mayhem in a taxi (three hags driving it share one eyeball), lots of swordplay and fisticuffs but no blowie uppie stuff. There is a great storm at sea, though.

I've asked Amazon to notify me when the DVD is available.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you read the books before watching... August 13, 2013
Format:DVD
The lightning thief movie was a good movie unless you read the books then you would hate every scene. This movie is quite an improvement. The writers tried like hell to make it close to the book and they did. Granted, it isn't 100% like the book but then again, no book to movie is.

Most changes are subtle and not noticed for most part. For example: In the book, they group went to the Sea of Monsters to get the fleece but also to rescue Grover who was taken by a cyclops. In the movie, only one of Grover's kind can lead heroes to the fleece. So, Grover goes with Percy, Annabeth and Tyson and he is then, kidnapped by Luke's men = Percy and company have to save him. A change but really, who cares? Point is, Grover is with the fleece and needs to be saved.

Other small changes would include

The trio taking the gray sisters's taxi from camp, not to camp like in the book.

The trio going to Hermes at the UPS store unlike him coming to camp. (book)

Hermes gives them the thermos and a tape dispenser. In the book, he gave them the thermos and a bottle of vitamens.

Luke, Thalia, Annabeth and Grover are chased by two Cyclopses in the movie. in the book, the furies are listed as those that chase them among other monsters.

The prophecy says a child of 20, in the book the age is 16.

Tyson already knew his father when he go to camp in the movie. in the book, he did not know.

Tyson and Percy are strangers in the movie but are friends in the book.

If you can live with these changes, then you will be ok with the movie.case closed.

The only slap to the face is the last 10 minutes of the movie. Spoiler.

1.0 out of 5 stars What Was Rick Riordan THINKING? February 8, 2014
Format:DVD
If I could get away with half a star, I would.
Maybe it is a result of having read the books and obsessed over them since they first came out, but if that is the case with you, I advise against seeing this movie. I enjoyed the first ten minutes, then spent the rest of it making comparisons.

In an attempt to be fair, I think this movie is one you either love or hate.
On the bright side, it fixed up several things from the first movie... And then proceeded to get nearly everything else categorically wrong.

So, good and bad.
I LOVED how they did Clarisse, Hermes and Chiron. Clarisse was the tough, take-no-prisoners perfect Daughter of Ares, Nathen wasn't quite how I envisioned Hermes physically, but pulled the character off Perfectly. Same with Stanley as Dionysus. Anthony Stewart Head is the wise old centaur I had envisioned ever since I read the first book.
I imagined Luke as being taller and more muscular, but otherwise Jake was the best I can think of for the role, and played the angry, angst-y, collage-age villain to perfection.
The Oracle was pretty good, and I would have enjoyed the stain-glass-storytelling if they hadn't managed to completely screw up the myth.

Unfortunately, that's about it.

The main trio are, at this point, supposed to be 13 - 14 years old, but are all played by adult actors. They fixed the fact that all children of Athena are blonde and grey-eyed, but removed any trace of Annabeth's personality to compensate for it.
Selina was a spy who communicated with Luke via a magic charm, and Ethan didn't even meet Luke until the fourth book! WHAT THE #%*?} ARE THEY DOING WITH LUKE NOW? And why is a character described as African-American being played by an Asian-looking actor?
