Opinions vary on this film......but I'm going to focus on the positive. (by Soul4673)
Honestly I thought this film was going to suck. I am a HUGE fan of the books....I have read them about 5 times and truthfully after watching the first film and how far it fled from the book I thought this film would be a lot worse than what it was. So, OK I went to watch this film in 3D with my mother and I am pretty sure I bored her by saying "that was in the book." OVER and OVER. The opening to this film begins with a camera following the sea and slowly sinking under and then revealing the title "Percy Jackson and the sea of monsters" in what looked like iron writing <more>
during which Logan Lerman is giving a speech about how the Greek gods are real and how 7 years ago 4 demigods tried to get into Camp Half Blood then the camera zooms from aerial shot of a forest to 4 young children. 2 girls and 2 guys. A creature is chasing them but we don't see this creature until later as this explains another part of the character "Annabeth" One of the guys gets knocked over by this creature and is picked up and dragged into the camp by young Annabeth and young Luke while a black haired girl named Thalia yells that she'll hold it off and for them to go. She is then thrown to the ground and dies in a position where she's flailed in several directions...Percy then continues to narrate saying that Zeus let her live in another way and as he says this Thalia's body begins to turn into a tree and this tree then forms a blue barrier which eventually becomes transparent as Annabeth, Luke and Grover enter the camp. I actually found this to be a strong opening as it showed us 2 of the main characters' journey as well as the main villain's plus the effects were amazing as well as the acting.Anyways in the books from sea of monsters onwards Tyson was always my favourite character....and he did not disappoint in this film. I loved the clutzy lovable guy he was in this film. He was so cute actually. Douglas Smith portrays a character full of hope and love and optimism and this character actually makes the film. In a weird way he reminded me of Doug from the Pixar film up.....not in a mean way. He was just lovable and cute and charming and loved Percy from the minute he laid "eye" on him haha....cheesy Cyclops joke which reminded me of "I just met you and I love you." The line which Doug says to Mr Frederickson when they first meet. I found both his portrayal of my favourite character and the brotherly chemistry between Percy and himself to be stunning actually. How he sacrifices himself to save Percy and says "You'd do the same for me." and then falls of a cliff into water actually made me cry especially when Percy's grieving and says "I never even called him brother." I don't know how the world saw Douglas Smith as a clumsy Cyclops but truthfully I couldn't be more in love with what I saw from him today.OK....first of me and mum are both HUGE fans of the Logan Lerman film "the perks of being a wallflower" and since watching it about 10 times in a week it is slightly tough to see him as anymore than the emotional character of "Charlie" but both characters of Charlie and Percy were perfectly portrayed by Logan Lerman and I am actually really proud of his performance in this. He portrays the wounded hero extremely well. The hero without a quest who cannot contact his father. I love Logan Lerman. I really do and I love Percy Jackson...so to me this was a perfect combination.Truthfully the reviews on this film maybe mixed and some may choose to focus on the bad like how the voice over was sometimes too obvious and how the story ran to quick from disaster to disaster but there are so many things that are admirable about this film which cannot be ignored like the flawless casting and the brilliant lines and how it seemed to flow from scene to scene without stopping as well as how it seemed to stick to the book's storyline. I don't know whether this series will continue but I REALLY hope it does as I'm not ready to say goodbye to Percy and Annabeth and Grover and Tyson yet.
The world has never seen a Cyclops before this movie that was done as well. Just for this fact alone, I would say go see the movie already! I would watch it again most definitely for many other reasons, and if you are not cynical about CGI, you will like this! Seriously, this movie was one of the best, most entertaining films I have seen in the past 10 years. Yes, and I love watching all kinds of movies, so I hope you will listen to me and that you will go see it. Trust me that because of CGI, much of the action is not believable I only believe in one God anyways but that aside, this movie <more>
was FUN and the CGI effects were AWESOME to watch! I think that it had so many elements that were interesting that you will like it a lot, and maybe find yourself wanting to read the books, too.
FANTASTIC MOVIE!!!!!! GO SEE IT! Waiting impatiently for the next installment. (by kristinamariabroadway)
PLEASE GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!I am a HUGE fan of Rick Riordan and the Percy Jackson book series. I was also a HUGE fan of the Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief movie, and it was VERY VERY different from the book. This movie differs from the book less, yet people are still complaining? I'm excited that we get to see some new content with these wonderful characters!!!!!!!! Logan Lerman is a fantastically talented actor see "Perks of Being a Wallflower" who has a big career ahead of him. I love that he was willing to do the sequel. GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!! I really hope that <more>
some lousy reviews from dumb critics won't ruin the chances for the next movie! CAN'T WAIT FOR "Titan's Curse" movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I loved this film so much better than the first one. I felt the first movie left a lot of key plot points out, but this movie brought some things in without making the movie seem jumbled. Sea of Monsters starts by telling the story of how Talia, Luke, and Annabeth came to camp half blood. It also brings in the characters Tyson and Clarisse. Granted, the way they brought in Tyson wasn't exactly how they did it in the books, I thought that they did it in the best way possible considering the first film. In the books, Tyson was a classmate of Percy's, but in this one, they brought him in <more>
to help Percy's confidence, which he needed, and also brought in the story of the great prophecy. I understand some people were looking for the movies to be an exact replica of the books on film, but I didn't expect that. Ad I don't think anyone should. The majority of the the characters were there, the basic storyline was there, and I thought that they brought the Kronos and Talia story lines in very well to make a cohesive and fun movie. The special effects were great to me, especially the hippocampus I know there were supposed to be three of them, but the one they did have was impressive enough . I definitely encourage people to not rely too heavily on anyone's opinion even mine and go see and enjoy this movie.
Ill start off by saying I loved the movie, and recommend absolutely recommend it to fans and those who haven't read the book alike. I was saddened to read reviews saying how bland this was compared to Harry Potter and sick to death of seeing it being compared to the series . The Percy Jackson series is not trying to be anything but Percy Jackson with it's own Greek myth influenced story, and it does it well.Of course there has been some omissions but that is expected from any book to big screen adaptation. The changes that they did, they tried to explain as best as possible I found, <more>
given what they had to work with. I think fans of the book wouldn't be too disappointed. And those that haven't read the book will find this a very entertaining follow-up to this much awaited sequel. Lets hope there will be a third to follow!
I think that this movie being the second in the series kept to the book a bit more than it's prequel. Though I noticed quite a few discrepancies in the story might not be using that word right. Though as I did not check this off as having spoilers, I'm not going to say what they are so that more people can view my opinion, anyway though it did not make as much money box office as the first one, "Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief" or maybe there's no "and the" in the title but not too sure, anyway again, not I or any of my friends saw it in the theaters, <more>
though we did rent it and watch it at home and I'm not too sure but I don't think that counts as " box office" income or not. I also believe that if the producers or whomever had not waited so long to release the sequel, it would have received more income from theaters and rentals. I also believe that people should not compare this title to the Harry Potter series, as they are hardly alike at all other than being about a teenager with magical upbringings. If need be I would start a petition or something of the sort if the producers don't want to finish the series in films dvds and whatnot as I know a plethora of people that really enjoy the series and would pay the price for a ticket or rental. Anyway I know I've said that word plenty of times in this post I apologize for any errors in spelling or bad sentence structure, I'd like to think that I usually write rather well, but as I am using a mobile device, this review took quite some time to write and was a wee bit difficult. Thanks for reading and comment or email me if you'd like to discuss this topic in greater depth.
The film was a good adaptation of the book. It had funny bits in, a nod to firefly and Anthony Head in it loads better than Pierce Bronson . The film starts with a action scene showing the growth of Percy. The film doesn't have any slow parts in my opinion.There are two main issues with the film that fans of the books will pick out. One is the fact that Percy has not shown his ability to talk to horses or sea life. The second thing is on the andromada that will make the other adaptation of the films more difficult to keep on track with the books.In conclusion the film is a must for kids <more>
will keep them entertained for the length of the film. For fans of the books fun to talk about the differences.
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 <more>
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.
I just watched the movie and I loved it so much. I think it was better then the first one and it had more action and some sad scenes I cried. But it was really good and I just can say watch it. You will not repent it. I swear! It was really exciting! So I just can hope when there's coming a next one it will be as good as that. I didn't read the books but I think I'm actually start to read them because the movies are amazing and normally I think the books are better. So read the books watch the movie. It's amazing. I watched it in 3D. I don't like it that much but it was <more>
really good! But I think there was no part in the movie that was boring. I listened to every single word and it really wasn't boring. But there some scenes you first have to think about it that you actually can understand. Altogether it was really really good!
