Soulsurvivor543: Love the books and for some reason the books have NOTHING to do with the
films WHY !!??
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.
isaak8162: I don't think that's what WildcatDiana was saying, I think she meant that
they would have more negative things to say because it strayed so far off
from the book as well as sapping the personality's out of the characters,
but I do agree with what you said about a movie standing alone though.
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.
Kity 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!
Ryan Steele: 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
jacklanting: 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.
scratchfg212: really Alonso? 7.8? thats crazy
Patrick J. McKenna: i did too
chosuriki: Norse Twighlight.
Zomn: These books deserved a better movie. They turned something cool into a
tween thing when it wasn't that at all.
Brad Stephens: It was nothing like the book that should have been a deal breaker
Slay3rPr0: I bet they haven't even read any of the books. If they did, they would've
gotten all the thigs that were presented in the movie. They bash it to all
hell, when they most likely haven't even read the books
Benght B: My little brothers are in love with this series, so I read it when they
asked. I though it was a fun, interesting series of books. Then when I took
them to this movie...all I could think about was that episode of south park
where the writers/producers "rape" the Indiana Jones story. One of my
brothers walked out of the theater and said: "They must really hate the
books to change the story that much!" I had to hear him complain about the
movie the whole ride home!
