‘Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters’ Review

Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters Review
Fox

When 'Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief' came out in 2010, it looked suspiciously as if the would-be franchise, based on Rick Riordan's best-selling teen adventure books, was going to get 'Golden Compass'-ed -- stopped after one installment and left to languish. But the first adventures of title hero Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman) -- born to a mortal mother and the Greek God Poseidon made $226 million worldwide, never mind home video.

So, we get a second helping of Percy's adventures, which mix the home-away-from-home setting and grow-up-fast themes of 'Harry Potter' with some all-American gumption and a little Greek dressing on the side. With a new writer and director -- and what seems like a budget spent more on computer effects than human actors -- 'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters' is exactly the kind of film that was made for me to take my teen and tween nieces to, not for me to enjoy. There's some bloodless peril, not even a whiff of romance and plenty of spirited action.

'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters' is the second film in a franchise that arrived with a shrug back in 2010. Can it grab the audience that ignored the first film? Can it fill the void left by the insanely successful 'Harry Potter' franchise? We won't know until later this summer.

But hey, there's a new poster!
