Our Score
Three years after Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief, the half-human son of sea god Poseidon pops up again, carried on a wave of the novels' popularity. Working from Rick Riordan's bestselling books, director Thor Freudenthal creates a world where Greek deities, humans and demigods coexist, with Logan Lerman reprising the starring role. His first film adventure was an underrated little gem, ideally designed for pre-teens, but the second is a bit sketchy, barely adequate to fill the void left by the Harry Potter franchise. This time, Percy and pals are away at "Camp Half-Blood" - the secret retreat of the demigods -, but peace is threatened, leading them to the ominous-sounding "Sea of Monsters" (aka the Bermuda Triangle). There, they must retrieve the fabled Golden Fleece, dodging obstacles that include a giant mechanical bull, a cyclops and the great sea beast Charybdis. The story often hits choppy waters and only just about stays afloat.


The modern-day teenage son of the Greek god Poseidon must lead his friends on a perilous journey into the Bermuda triangle. They need to recover the legendary Golden Fleece to save the world, but getting to it means braving all manner of terrifying monsters. Fantasy adventure sequel, starring Logan Lerman and Alexandra Daddario.
