Underwhelming, unentertaining, unfunny
Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters might be passable for the fans, but from a non-reader’s perspective it’s really terrible. Amateurish direction, underwhelming effects, and wooden acting translate into a film whose characters you’ll have absolutely no connection with unless you’ve read the books. It all seemed to be just Logan Lerman and friends heading from Point A to Point B while reading their lines without any motivation whatsoever. So yes, it’s a bad film. And unfortunately, it’s currently the worst film I’ve seen this year….at least until I see After Earth. But that’s not even guaranteed.
