Percy Jackson: sea of monsters
Direction: Thor Freudenthal
Actors: Logan Lerman, Alexandra Daddario
Rating: **1/2


The second Percy Jackson film is strictly for the kiddie brigade. This time, the titular demi-god (Lerman) must find the legendary Golden Fleece and restore the barrier which protects their safe haven.

So he embarks on a perilous journey over the shark-infested waters of the Bermuda Triangle. Among the new characters, there’s Percy’s half-brother who also happens to be a Cyclops. The script provokes unintended giggles at times but its family-friendly flights of fancy just about pushes it to see-grade.
