Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters Review: Demigod’s Second Coming

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Logan Lerman is perfectly cast as Percy Jackson. At first when the casting was announced for the first film in the series based on the books by Rick Riordan, it seemed like an interesting choice for Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.

Words cannot describe how awful this movie was. Saying it was bad would be generous. The people behind me got up and left saying this was, "F***ing stupid!". But I have to agree. At no point in time did the action scenes have me falling out of my seat or keeping me on my toes. Everybody who exited the theater were either laughing, like I did when Annabeth died (horrible acting), or just quiet and disappointed. P.S., They messed up big time on Clarisse, because that girl is hot, when she's supposed to be an ugly brute!

I just came back from the movie theater and this is the WORST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!!!!!!! I am just about the biggest fan of Percy Jackson i can be and ive read the books 5 times each. I was expecting this movie to be amazing because it was a new director and the first one got so many bad reviews. BOY WAS I WRONG! here is a list of things that sucked about it: (spoilers) -percy looks like he is 20 not 13 (the age he is supposed to be)
-Percy does not go to school in the movie
-Percy never is introduced with Tyson before camp half blood at the school
-Percy doesnt play dodgeball with monsters and blow a hole in the side of the school (at school)
-The dont wear camp half blood t-shirts
-you dont see the cabins
-chiron is supposed to be white
-PERCY IS SUPPOSED TO BE A CHILD DELEQUIT NOT A PRETTY BOY!!!!!
-annebeth is supposed to be cooler
-grover is just… not right
-Percy is supposed to meet Hermes a camp half blood at night outside his cabin
-hermes is supposed to make percy do the quest
-Hermes gives percy vitimans at the lake
-the gang is supposed to have 3 hippocampi not one
-the princess anddromadon is supposed to be a cruise ship
-percy is supposed to have dreams about grover and kronos
-the people on the cruise ship are supposed to be ghosts
-luke is supposed to be hiding in one of the rooms there with kronos
-They are supposed to fight a crab
-WHERE THE HECK IS CERCES BEAUTY RESORT
-WHY DIDNT GROVER AND PERCY TURN INTO GUINEE PIGS??? (MY FAVORITE PART)
-where is the beautiful island with the sheep and the fleese?
-where is the cave?
-where is the wedding dress grover is making
-Kronos forms back to life
-Kronos forms his own body
-annebeth gets stung with a giant scorpian
-luke is forshadowed to have died at the end
-Percy just stabs kronos and sends him back to the tomb
-thalia
-The backstory of Thalia and luke and annebeth and grover
-WHERE IS ALL THE AWESOMENESS THAT I AND OTHER PERCY JACKSON BOOK LOVERS LOVE???? I AM VERY UPSET!!! the only thing i really liked about this film was the name, the tomb of kronos, and the hippocampi.
Anyone who watches this just be aware. When Kronos was constructed outside of luke i started crying because it was just to much. :(
Anyone who wants to remake all of the percy jackson movies i would love you and so would all the percy jackson fans and it would turn into a harry potter franchise. But then again we wouldnt want that cause its our book and we (well i) dont want anyone liking it but not seeing it as anything but the movie. Thanks :)
