I received this title free for the purpose of review through the Fox Insiders program. All view and opinions expressed here are my own honest evaluations. Sponsor is responsible for prize fulfillment. See Disclosure.Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters was exciting since I had watched the first movie Percy Jackson: The Lightening Thief in the theater. My mother used to work in the youth department at our local library and she had read the Percy Jackson series and told me they were good books so the movies would be worth watching. Having never read the books myself, I wondered if I might get lost watching the movie. The first Percy Jackson movie jumped right into the action, and Sea Of Monsters is no exception it's fast paced and no prior knowledge is required.
My Thoughts: No Spoilers
It had been a while since I watched the first Percy Jackson so a refresher would have been nice, but it wasn't necessary to understand Sea Of Monsters. Opening with a scene to explain "Camp Half-blood" and give the foundation for the need to the upcoming quest you'll get introduced to Percy and friends.There are some new characters introduced this go around and you might find yourself being charmed by a cyclops. Who won't charm you in this film is the eyeless witches who drive the "Chariot of Damnation" this scene could have been cut and I wouldn't miss it. My favorite scenes were any that involved the beautiful "Sea-horse" a horse with fins that comes to help Percy and his new found brother thanks to their father Poseidon. It's like my child-hood fantasy on screen. I could watch a whole movie about them and the "Sea-horse" it's just fun. There are many silly scenes along the way and a few that might scare younger viewers so I think this is the perfect mix for any tween.
