I must admit, I enjoyed Percy Jackson much more than I expected. It isn’t the sort of movie that will win any awards — however, the craftsmanship was first rate. It’s a good story that is well paced throughout. In fact, I found myself getting lost in the story, which isn’t very common since I’m busy writing down notes for Peetimes.
The special effects were beautiful; the acting was very good. I especially enjoyed Nathan Fillion as Hermes.
There were a few funny moments, enough to keep things light and not make the movie feel weighted down. Even though it’s been many many years since I cracked a book on mythology, I was never lost or bored during this fine movie.
I’m looking forward to re-watching both Percy Jackson movies together when this comes out on DVD.
About The Peetimes: Note: the movie started unexpectedly and so the peetime cues may be off by about a minute.
The first peetime is definitely the best. It is a little longer – 3.5 minutes long – and has very little dialog.
The second peetime comes during a much more involved portion of the movie. You don’t want to use it unless it’s an emergency.
There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters. (What we mean by Anything Extra)
