The original cast is back with the exception of Pierce Brosnan who does not return as Chiran. Instead British Actor Anthony Head joins the cast as Chiran and he fits in nicely. This time Percy Jackson son of Poseidon God of the Seas played by Logan Lerman is once again on a quest to save the world along with Grover played by Brandon T. Jackson his trusty protector and Annabeth played by Alexandra Daddario daughter of Athena Goddess of Wisdom. Some new faces have also joined the cast. Stanley Tucci joins the cast as Mr. D one of the heads of the half blood camp, Leven Rambin as Clarisse daughter of Aries God of War, Paloma Kwiatowski as Thalia daughter of Zeus King of the Gods and Douglas Smith as Tyson also the son of Poseidon and Percy’s Cyclops half brother. These new characters blend in nicely and the addition of the new demi-gods make for one interesting adventure.
The special effects once again do not disappoint, however the 3D effect does not make or break the film. The scene where Percy and the gang ride the hippocampus which is a mythical sea horse sent to them by Poseidon to carry them to Luke’s yacht is simply beautiful! The detail on the animation of the creature is amazing! It looks so real! The beautiful vibrant colors of the sea and the creature combined is simply breath taking! It is truly a beautiful rare cinematic moment! A definite must see!
This time Percy and the gang are on a quest to find the golden fleece and it proves to be quite an adventure! Luke played by Jake Abel once again is the villain. This time he goes too far in his hatred for the gods and gets more than he bargained for. This film has something for everyone. It is entertaining and fun to watch. You will definitely want to add this film to your DVD collection. It gets 4 out of 5 popcorn bags.
