Based on the publishing phenomenon, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters continues the young demigod's epic journey to fulfill his destiny. To save their world, Percy and his friends must find the fabled and powerfully magic Golden Fleece. Embarking on a treacherous odyssey into the uncharted waters of the Sea of Monsters (known to humans as the Bermuda Triangle), they battle terrifying creatures, an army of zombies, and the ultimate Evil.
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

I liked the first movie, even though it really did not follow the book very faithfully, It came much closer than SoM in my opinion.There were several problems with SoM-. Too many added scenes, not enough of the actual story, and poor character development were just a few of the things that made this movie just an okay way to spend a couple of hours. If you are looking for something that mirrors Rick RIordan's amazing story, my advice is stick to reading and leave the movie alone. If you just like teen action/fantasy and haven't read the books, this movie may be for you.
Pros: Action, some humorous parts, familial bonding. Kids may like it, which means you can start mythological dialogue.
Cons: Still with the mommy/daddy issues. Some continuity errors. The part with Hermes was little weird (kinda funny too). The parts with Clarisse get a little annoying.
Advice: See if it's on cable/satellite tv and watch it there first.
