Family films have been the story of the summer. Well, family films and sequels. In some cases, family films that are sequels. Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters falls into that category.
A sequel to 2010's Percy Jackson & The Olympians, this new film surely hopes to find the same kind of success that Despicable Me 2 and Monsters U have had.
Before we can see how they do at the box office, let's check out what the Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters reviews have to say. Then you can compare them to the We're The Millers reviews and go from there!
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. -- Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
For kids, Percy and pals are good company and the special effects are often fresh and eye-popping. There are further benefits for the few older fans on hand who love mythology. -- Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
You might think it would be endlessly awesome being the offspring of an Olympian god, but it seems like kind of a drag, really, for young Percy Jackson. -- Bruce Ingram, Chicago Sun-Times
Lerman is adroit at looking eager and battle-worthy but not too cocky in a film as much about character development as sword play. -- Marsha McCreadie, RogerEbert.com
In Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, choosing the dumbest character is a colossal task. -- Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
Tweens and young teens should be sufficiently distracted by the movie's brisk pace and heroic mayhem - if they're not too unnerved by its at times nightmarish imagery. -- Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
