Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters is all about Percy and his bunch of friends – all half–bloods head to the Sea of Monsters to find the mythical Golden Fleece.
The Camp Half-Blood, a summer camp for demigods and half-bloods managed by Hawaiian shirt-clad Dionysus (Stanley Tucci) and decidedly stern centaur, Chiron (Anthony Head). Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman) and his friends Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario) and Grover Underwood (Brandon T. Jackson) along with other half-bloods stay in the refugee camp which is protected by a magical barrier created by Thalia, daughter of Zeus, who sacrificed her life to save her friends. Percy and the camp is introduced to the unwelcome surprise to his half-brother Tyson ( Douglas Smith). Adding to the shock is the fact, Tyson is a cyclops (son of the Sea God, Poseidon).
Suddenly, evil breaks through their protective barrier. The camp is attacked by Luke Castellan (Jake Abel), who for no reason wants to destroy Mount Olympus. A rampaging mechanical bull with steam punk innards and flame thrower in its mouth causes a rampage in the peaceful camp. Chiron discovers that the magical tree has been poisoned, destroying the protective barrier. Annabeth suggests that the Golden Fleece can restore the tree. Soon PJ and his friends set on their adventurous quest to seek the healing powers of a Golden Fleece and destroy the evil forever. And as all fairy tales go, the movie concludes with celebrations and happiness.
Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters is the screen adaptation of Rick Riordan’ novel of the same name weaving the Greek mythology with modern updates. The movie clearly features a mythical mishmash of Harry Potter’s Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Chronicles of Narnia and similar movies with Greek mythology. Adding to this not-so-good mythical mash-up movie are the various strange elements like the mechanical bull, dragon-styled sea stallion, ugly scorpion dog, weird one-eyed Cyclops to helpful smiling Zombies. Flashback depicted through crude animation with a stained glass technique adds to the plot of the movie. Guess nothing else was left to be added to the movie.
More than the plot of Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters, the CGI is more entertaining. But the 3D doesn’t add much to it. Logan Lerman as "Percy Jackson" is too bland and ordinary. Even the other characters are no better and that special charm is missing. The movie isn’t perfect in several ways as big parts of the book are missing yet is an enjoyable and harmless tween-centric outing.
