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

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.

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.

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.

To put this into perspective, I'm a 39 year old that has read the entire series and loved them. I even mildly like the first movie The Lightning Thief. I never expect the movies to match the book but I haven't seen such a repugnant screen adaptation since Clan of the Cavebear. The sea of monsters has One monster. For some bizarre reason the cyclops lives in a roller coaster, and the cruise ship that was full of evil badness is now a yacht with one monster and 4 bad guys. The entire story in the book was thrashed. The only thing they kept were the character names.

There were a few things I liked.
Nathan Fillion as Hermes.
Rainbow the hippocampus.
and the taxi ride.

Paid for this on blueray so I got gyped.

Don't expect a good movie.

I liked the first Percy Jackson movie. It was inventive in the way it used the mythological source material, and I enjoyed it without feeling like I was far outside its target demographic. I can't imagine anyone past their teens really liking the sequel, and even then, I doubt it will ever be anybody's favorite.

A big problem here is that the franchise's best ideas all seem to be tied up with explaining how the whole demigod thing works, and they already did that in the last movie. It should be that once the origin story is out of the way, you can focus on exciting adventures, but even the quest plot in this one seems way less interesting than the first movie's. The protagonists have to find the golden fleece, and they already know pretty much where it is, so they go there and find it. They have to fight a few people and monsters along the way, but none of it feels very dangerous. When a problem comes up that can't be solved with punching, the movie just gives Percy a new magic power or a convenient item to deal with it. Even the villain seems bored with the proceedings. It's the same guy as the last movie, and the closest we get to an explanation of his plot or motivation is basically, “I'm gonna try to blow up Olympus again, for... whatever reason I said last time.”

The major novel element in this movie is a new character, whose personality throughout boils down to “very enthusiastic and also dumb.” Not, like, comically so – just higher-than-average enthusiasm and lower-than-average intelligence. I began to feel sorry for the actor playing him, because most of the stuff they gave him to do is like watching someone's vacation videos: “I'm really glad I'm on this trip with you guys. This is fun! Whoops, I dropped that thing I was supposed to hold onto!
