Here we go with the second chapter of this popular series, based on the book by Rick Riordan, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters. This time directed by Thor Freudenthal ("Diary of a Wimpy Kid") whose main job here seems to be producing Computer Generated Images... A movie based on a book this fantastical HAS to include CGI, so I'm not complaining...this time. Plus I appreciate the fact that kids refer back to Greek mythology to read about the Golden Fleece.
The invisible shield that protects the half-bloods' safe haven has evaporated because the tree that created it is dying. Their only hope is the Golden Fleece because of its restorative powers.
Here they are again:
This has a PG rating, so expect no nudity, no profanity, a bit of vehicular mayhem in a taxi (three hags driving it share one eyeball), lots of swordplay and fisticuffs but no blowie uppie stuff. There is a great storm at sea, though, and I liked the Greek myth depicted with animated stained glass figures.
