    Marc Guggenheim's script is capable and funny, but the film's finest wit is vehicular.

  • Adam Markovitz

    Sarcastic quips and cynical attitudes abound, maybe as a way for the movie's makers to telegraph that they know this is all just so much kid stuff. But if the characters can't muster genuine awe for their adventure, it's a tall order to ask us to do it for them.

    It’s the odd touch of local color — like the backdrop of an abandoned amusement park, or the arrival of a Civil War steamer crewed by Confederate zombies — that makes these routine acts of derring-do a bit easier to bear. Full Review
  • Marsha McCreadie

    This "Percy Jackson" is a gentler-spirited, less flashy enterprise, though it still presents a natural world that can morph at the whim of a god. I like that. Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    Director Thor Freudenthal (“Diary of a Wimpy Kid”) finds his groove with a succession of flashy 3-D renderings... They’re digitized riffs on the Sarlacc pit from “Star Wars” and the finale of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” — but as with the “Potter” cribbing, when it’s done well, it encourages “Percy” audiences to forgive the derivative chunks and thin emotion.

  • Gary Goldstein

    Skippable 3-D aside, it's a serviceable, limber follow-up to 2010's "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief."

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Here and there, some of this starts to feel a little less like homework and more like fun. Though part one used up many of the good monsters—like Medusa and the hydra—part two is a fleeter entertainment, free of origin-story requirements.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    In the films at least, there's something so naked about the Potter/Percy story parallels that's it's hard not to sit there as a viewer and get distracted playing connect the dots.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Bruce Ingram

    The big action set pieces fizzle. And that’s not good for a fantasy adventure movie, especially when the fantasy component is frequently undercut by sub-standard special effects.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    The Thor Freudenthal-helmed sequel lacks the energetic zip of its predecessor.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Nathan Fillion is the movie's brightest spot as Hermes, re-envisioned as a UPS manager. He makes a quip about how the best TV series always get canceled, in a nod to Firefly, the iconic sci-fi show in which he starred.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    An epic showcase for mediocre CGI and slapdash screenwriting.

    Variety Full Review
  • Andy Webster

    “Sea of Monsters” is diverting enough...but it doesn’t begin to approach the biting adolescent tension of the Harry Potter movies.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The quest, which takes our heroes to the Sea of Monsters, aka The Bermuda Triangle, is generic in the extreme. The fights/escapes all lack any sense of urgency and peril.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    That first movie was obviously a calculated grab for Harry Potter-type movie success but didn't feel like a rip-off. This one skews younger, to an easier-to-please demographic, closely resembling other fantasies since.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    There are plenty of bad films to get riled up about in the summer. Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters isn't one of them. This is harmless tween-centric fun.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Gabe Toro

    The little action in 'Percy Jackson' wouldn’t be out-of-place in a superhero film, which is to say it’s mostly functional, and sometimes quite diverting.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    The final showdown whisks up the requisite excitement, but the open-ended coda feels like an optimistic throw of the dice from the franchise showing meagre signs of Harry Potter longevity.

    The kids are charmless, the adults bemused.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Ian Nathan

    The CG does its part of the bargain, but even more than the brighter, breezier original this is a pale imitation of Potter.

    Empire Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    This is some weak, watered-down stuff.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    The stakes in this latest, disappointing Harry Potter wannabe never feel as high as they should, or as important as its characters seem to think they are.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    What makes mythology so great is its sense of danger, the threat of real loss. This version of “Percy” has none of that.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    Despite the usual end-of-world crisis and Mount Olympus MVP characters, there’s no sense that anything’s truly at stake; rather, it feels as if the filmmakers are coasting on the fumes of teen-angst fantasy and making up their fairy-tale rules (Cyclopes are fireproof!) as they go along.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters continues a tradition of adequacy that could be described as “epic-ish” or “majestic-esque.”

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    In Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, choosing the dumbest character is a colossal task.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Sea of Monsters most bizarre and apropos-of-nothing moment comes when the half-blood kids find themselves stuck on – I kid you not – what appears to be the Civil War ironclad ship Monitor, captained and crewed by a host of Confederate zombies.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    Before it descends into Percy Jackson and the Things That Happen in Movies Like This, the adventure at times clicks into the inventive groove of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson novels, which at their best are touched with the high strangeness of the ancient tales that inspire them.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Jen Chaney

    Even likable actors can’t obscure the fact that, holy gods on Mount Olympus, this thing is a slog, a movie that dutifully hits its plot points involving prophecies and fleeces without evoking a whiff of spirit or imagination.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    Like some hybrid beast out of Greek mythology, this young-adult sequel has the body of a “Harry Potter,” the head of a “Twilight,” the feet of a “Hunger Games” and the tail, oddly, of a “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”

    New York Post Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    There’s really nothing to recommend ‘Sea of Monsters’: the young cast are smug and forgettable; the action sequences barely get going before they’re over; and the whole affair is riddled with product placement and pop cultural references – one girl even seems to possess a magic iPad. Keep the kids at home

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    There isn’t even an actual sea of monsters in “Sea of Monsters,” unless you count some fish guts.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    I'll tell you what's insane: the probability that folks will go easy on this dreck because it's aimed at younger viewers, who are being distressingly trained to expect little from their art.
