Last week, I reviewed the first Percy Jackson movie, Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. This is a review for the second and final Percy Jackson movie, Sea of Monsters.
Even though he already saved the world, Percy doesn’t really feel like a hero. So much so that he starts to wonder if everything that happened was just by accident. And when Tyson, his cyclops half-brother, appears, Percy even starts thinking that being Poseidon’s son is a curse.
That is when Camp Half-Blood starts being in danger, attacked by hordes of monsters. The demi-gods will have to go on a quest and find the Golden Fleece, their only hope.
Or you can watch the trailer right here.
If you followed my reviews for the past few weeks, or if you follow me on Twitter. You probably saw that I’m kind of obsessed with the entire Riordanverse right now, and most of all, everything relating to the Greek Gods. After reading them, I really wanted to rewatch the movies because, as I remembered them, they were kind of great. And I wasn’t really wrong with the first one (I know it’s controversial). But I just couldn’t get behind Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters the way I got behind the first one.
Having aged, all the characters changed the main thread of the series, meaning the prophecy. It probably would have changed a lot in the relationship between Thalia and Percy or Annabeth.
The only positive thing I would have to say about this movie is the actors. I just really loved them, and you can see that they tried their best (even Rick Riordan sees it :p)
Should you see Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters?
Meh, not really. I mean, as I said before, the actors are still great. But if I were you, I would just read the books and wait for the TV Show to come out on Disney+. (Which BTW, I just can’t wait!!)
