Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters
Being the mother of a rambunctious toddler, I don’t get to the movie theater much. In fact, I think I’ve seen one other movie the entire time the booger has been alive.
However! I could NOT wait to see Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters – so when I had a half-day at work, I went that afternoon to the theater (bonus! it’s much cheaper in the daytime).
I am a HUGE fan of Rick Riordan’s books, and I really liked the first film (Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief – which can be checked out from the Library). I was really hoping this second film would live up to the book. I was NOT disappointed!
The film stuck to the plot of the book and followed Percy, Grover and Annabeth on a quest to find the mythical Golden Fleece to heal Thalia (the large tree that creates and sustains the invisible border around Camp Half-Blood). Percy must face his nemesis Luke, son of Hermes, to fight for the Fleece and keep Kronos – Lord of the Titans from rising.
It’s a hair raising adventure with great special effects, casting and of course – plot!
I recommend you get to the theaters ASAP to catch the film! But if you want to wait – the Library will of course be purchasing the DVDs and Blu-Ray when they are released.
