PERCY JACKSON SEA ON MONSTERS - Review! TOMORROW'S NEWS - The Latest Entertainment News Today!

Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman), son of Poseidon, destined to save Olympus… Again! With the help of his old friends Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario), the daughter of Athena, and Grover (Brandon T. Jackson), the Satyr, his new Cyclops brother Tyson (Douglas Smith), and the Clarisse (Leven Rambin), daughter of Ares, he succeeds!
 

I enjoyed the first Percy Jackson film, and so thought I would thoroughly enjoy the second. I enjoyed the concept but I just think I was a bit too old for it. The film seemed to go really quick, and they didn’t dwell on anything for too long. It was like, we’ve got this plan, let’s do it, all hell breaks loose (quite literally), and Olympus is saved again for now. It seemed rushed. It was definitely made for a younger audience than myself; I’m almost 20. Normally I enjoy sequels to films I watched when I was younger (I had no problem watching ‘Monster’s University‘!) but something about Percy Jackson was weird for me, and I couldn’t put my finger on it. I think it must have been my age.

However, I did particularly enjoy the special effects. The centaur, Chiron, played by the familiar face, Anthony Head, was one of my favourites, but I also enjoyed Grover’s goat legs, and Tyson’s one eye. My favourite, and probably the funniest character, was played by Stanley Tucci, who played the funnily forgetful Mr D, or Dionysus, the god of wine and madness, forced to be the director of Camp Half-Blood by Zeus as punishment. He is already a favourite of mine, but I feel that he made the role, and it suited him extremely well. Logan Lerman also gave a great performance as the awkward Percy Jackson, the boy thrown into a world which he must save every now and again. You’d think it’d stay saved!

As much as I thought it was made for a younger audience than myself, I still want to watch the next one, I want to read Rick Riordan’s books, and I want to find out more about Greek Mythology. The filmmakers must be doing something right!
