I don’t remember the book exactly, but I remember tyson being a pretty nice guy, and yet they just made him an idiot in this, which I can kind of accept, also they skipped past the way they made the psyclops with the fleace drunk to steal it. But the worst part is that I’m pretty sure Kronos never gets resurrected, so, like wtf?

Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters review: it was good and all but it was NOTHING like the book: 1) Luke didnt have a scar like in the book 2) Luke was in a ship, not a yacht 3) Kronos never rose in the book, but he did in the movie 4) the sea of monsters’ mouth had no junk like an orthodontic’s nightmare like the book 5) Tyson was more mature while in the book he was more baby-ish 6) percy is supposed to uncaps his pen, not click it 7) at the beginning there should have been a dodgeball scene where the other team was some sort if monsters like the book 8) the taxi stuff was at the beginning, but in the movie it was kinda into it when it happened 9) that was not the way percy defeated Luke’s ship, he was supposed to confuse the crew, not one on one battles 10) weren’t there 3 hippocampus? (idk I may be wrong) 11) percy was supposed to be 12 or 13, not a teenager 12) and the one that bugged me most of all was… IT WAS ALL SO FAST!! It left out so many details!

I think you have pretty much everything right, except for the part of where you called it good.

Tyson was one of my favourite characters, they made him an idiot in this. Doesn’t tyson kill the bull at the start? Could be wrong there and all the stuff where they’re talking in the dorm, Lastly there where definitely 3 hippocampi, and I’m pretty sure tyson could talk to them.

They just have percy doing everything, and skip past the whole premise that he would do anything for his friends, but that he needs their help.

Reblogged this on Jay Ar Decenella's Blog and commented:
Sorry Thor, but 1 out of 5 for Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (aka Bermuda Triangle) for its lack of thrill, dumb characters, grating Greco-American cultural amalgamation, and thrifty visual effects, though I must admit the Kronos is first-rate. Overall, it wasn’t worth it. And it wasn’t as epic as an Olympian-inspired film should be, only in its own respect.

Kronos may have been “first rate,” but he wasn’t ressurected in the book, about half the story is about foiling lukes plan.

The movie is good. It actually followed the book more compared to the first one. Sadly they cut the part about the spa :( but still a good film.

This is a letdown. I liked the first movie and though i never read the bools i still thought this wasn’t that great. Plus i’v seen so many comments on reviews saying that they stray from the book alot

I agree. I read the book half of the movie never even happened. If you like the movie its because you never read the book because you probably cant READ!!

“Not at all like the book”?! Of course it is! But most of the parts aren’t even part of it. The one who messed it up in the first place, and the director who had to interfere this movie was Chris Colombus. So that in order to continue the next film, they had to change the story a bit because the first movie ended wrongly. Now shut up and stop acting like a brat, or I’ll throw you to the depts of the tartarus!

Kronos was never resurrected. Why does no one seem to remember this?

This was the worst addaption to a book ever! I’ve you wanted that to happen in the movie just write your pwn book, in stead of taking Rick Riordans book and twisting it grotesquely!!!!!!
