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 can't help but thinking that "Percy Jackson - Sea of Monsters" is another example of why some books are best left unmade into movies.
Percy Jackson is having issues with Poseidon - he wants to have some quality time with his absent father - who resolves the issue by sending Percy his unexpected half-brother to Camp Halfblood. Doesn't help the issue that Percy's newly acquired half-brother is a cyclops. Oh that Poseidon.
If family matters weren't enough, Percy is starting to doubt himself and there seems to be a prophecy that suggests he's going to be responsible for death and destruction on a widespread scale.
Into this mix throw Luke, who is out to overthrow Zeus and the rest of the Olympians and restore the Titans to power.
So when someone else is chosen to go off on a quest to recover the Golden Fleece, Percy and his friends go off on their own to recover it.
The magice of the books are not in this movie, which is sad. But I don't think the books translate well into movies. Just my opinion.
Recommended only for fans for the series.
Overall I would say buy this movie, it is good and worth watching several times, so buy it and this way you will have it in your library to watch when the feeling comes over 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.
