MTV Review: Percy Jackson Sea Of Monsters
Logan Lerman takes on a Cyclops in his latest adventure as Percy...
Monday, August 5, 2013 - 10:40
Percy Jackson (Lerman), the son of Poseidon, and his quest to save his home, Camp Half Blood. The Camp is guarded over by Zeus’s daughter who was incarnated as a tree when she sacrificed her life to save the camp. When the ancient tree protecting the fortress is poisoned Percy and his friends along with his Cyclops half-brother must retrieve the mythical Golden Fleece to cure the tree of the poison and save their home.
Percy runs into trouble when his best friend is kidnapped and taken to the Sea of Monsters. The half bloods learn that a traitor is among the camp trying to resurrect a powerful evil.
Best Scene: A fire-breathing mechanical bull breaks through the camps protective force field and charges. An epic fight scene follows as the half bloods try to tame the terrifying beast which causes mayhem and burns everything in its path.
Best One Liner: “You’re a dude, that explains a lot”, proclaims a giant Cyclops when he realises his kidnapped half-blood is not a housemaid.
Date Movie or Mate Movie: If your date has a thing for ancient mythology, the apocalypse or both then you’re probably in.
Scene Stealer: The giant Cyclops is a comedian in his own right and delivers some great one-liners in the midst of destruction.
WTF Moment: Poseidon resurrecting a mythical Sea Horse from the sea to transport the weary travellers to a yacht in the middle of the ocean.
Summary: Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters is a white-knuckle ride where Ancient Greece meets the modern world. The plot is original but if you haven’t seen the first film you’ll have to work out the storyline pretty quickly.
