Sofi Lester: The books are definitely scarier than the movies even though there 9-12
books they are much scarier. These movies could have been a amazing if they
were done properly. Rick riordan is a genius. The people who made this
movie however, are not.
trippleblah: I don't even associate the movies with the books. The movies are horrid and
everyone who had read the series would agree.
Faye Stiffler: The books are awesome but the movies are TERRIBLE! Don't get the characters
looks right, adds stupid stuff to it, and some of the acting is terrible.
Fabulously~TJ: Love the books and for some reason the books have NOTHING to do with the
films WHY !!??
NaiTaiDai: Wanna know what makes this movie worse? The scene where Chronos eats Luke
and is then defeated completely renders the implication of a sequel
pointless. They beat the main villain of the books. You don't bring the
main threat into the second movie just to have him killed off minutes
later, otherwise there was no point to Luke reviving Chronos at all!
Musketeer.Inc: I found this movie fun. I'd give it a 5.5 because like Matt Atchity I found
myself losing interest by the 45 minute mark. As a classical civilization
graduate I found the references (brief as they were) decently appealing.
HOWEVER, these references are far too removed from ancient Greek mythology
to teach a child anything. If a child did begin to pick up classical
mythology and find it cool because of these movies then great, but the
movies weave a confusing take on the subject matter. Conclusion. If the
protagonists had to travel to Greece or through time to ancient Greece,
that would be much more endearing. Does America always need to make itself
the centre of the universe? I've not read the books, is it also set in the
Kes Eylers Stephenson: Love the books, but these are awful! Made with no passion at all!
Elmer Kappell: this movie sucked! Do you people know anything about greek mythology? Have
you read the book?
Bob Hontios: The people giving the review dont know anything about the books. They
wouldnt say such stupid comments. Not trying to be mean, but to bash
something before you have even given it a chance is really stupid and
uncalled for considering theres a lot of people that like it. And also, the
first movie didnt do so well and thats not why the second movie was
created. The second movie was created because the books were so great and
the Director is trying to give the fans what they want. Fans of the book!
paperstarjar: I find that movies based on books I read usually fail me. Books are always
better, and seeing the movie first sometimes gives me more enjoyment
because I haven't set up my own thoughts on the characters before hand.
11RVDfan: Hate to be that guy but..... read the books.
bazookabubblelgum43: There's a bunch more flaws yet I still can't wait to see it :P
lakergal07: I laughed so much in this movie. I wasn't supposed to but I did. If you're
a fan of the books please understand something, there's no way they could
have all that content from the books in the movies. First of all, some of
the things in the books aren't relevant to the plot. Secondly, the things
that are relevant to the plot but were kept out of the movies wouldn't
translate well on screen. I didn't care much for the acting and CG sucked
but I thought that the writing for this movie was great...
Christopher Buckley: Review of Elysium?
Marcio Cervantes: Percy Jackson sucks, Elysium was awesome!!!
bazookabubblelgum43: OK soooo..... I haven't seen it yet but I hope its good. I read all the
books and from the previews it looks like its WAAAAY off from the book like
the 1st one was. Don't get me wrong I loved the 1st one ands am looking
forward to the new one. Grover would barely be in this a one. *spoiler
alert (for the book)* the way they find the fleece is grover sends an
empathy link to Percy when he's stick on the island with Polyphemus (the
cyclops). In the movie it seems Grover's with them the whole time
prkprkprk2: It shouldn't matter if they've read the book or not. A good movie should
stand on its own, not requiring any reading before watching it.
OelendraNiakotuk: Scary? Seriously? This movie is not a good adaption of the book. The first
sucked and this is worse. Hey parents instead of watching this movie buy
your kid the book. The acting is poor, special effects are laughable, sets
and pacing are dull, and most of all this being an adaption fails. Don't
waste your money on this bore fest.
WINZ0W: lol, it's a sequel?
thelen72: fillin the void of potter poorly
ranwolf76: most of the time, yes
Juliana031498: Loved the books, hated the movies... So sad :(
TheAfroGuyCleo: i liked the books the movies are okay but the books are way better.
Toughnut: Water hero's are not exciting. Enough said.
D2 TheAcademik: ... If you read these books in your childhood, guess what, you're not quite
out of your childhood yet, you still have a chance to build new memories!
rnstl68: Percy Potter and the Chamber of Sea Monsters
Sc2mapper117: It's too bad, the books were really great :/
BottleConcreteBlond: You shouldn't have to read the books to enjoy a movie.
Cyanidesin: Either way, it bombed in the theaters.
Nikki Dussault: My kids really liked this movie. My 10 yo loves Rick Riordian's books. That
being said, I totally agree with Matt. The acting was too campy and the
action sequences weren't that great, but a good job with the effects.
Eddie Flores: U guys are stupid read the book then u have the right to judge
Mikkel Mowinckel: What's up with the horn blasts in every single movie coming out lately??
OcihEvE: Limited release. 1 theater in the Greater Toronto Area and it was out in
butt freak nowhere. fail out of the gate,
patchestheshark: good they SCREWED UP THE BOOKS
bazookabubblelgum43: They changed the 1st movie so much I really didn't expect another one
though.... I do wish it was more accurate. They're all in they're mid to
early teens in the book but all the actors are in they're 20s. The actor of
grover is 29
TheStealthPrince: I was like "don't spoil it" and then realized I had already read the books.
sanchezdude123: Kronos not cronos xc smh
Astral Frost: I really like these movies. I will see this one for sure.
rawrisiloveuindinify: i hated this movie it didnt even remotely try to follow the books
BbbradiCP: The movie was just so bad. So bad. Awful
Bertram Krogh: It's incredible how often Alonso gives these cheesy blockbusters a pass,
but doesn't acknowledge a lot of the more artsy, and masterfully crafted
films. I just think it's weird.
Nmkareti: Why so many spoilers?
BbbradiCP: Movie was bad
The Concise Statement: Good. He could learn a thing or two.
