REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

2.5 of 4

“..this franchise is starting to feel slightly less derivative. Eye-catching effects help hide the cribbing..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
2 of 4

“..the whole cast is enjoyable, in fact, with good chemistry. They're capable of entertaining us. Unfortunately, Freudenthal and writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski never really let them..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

“..is a lot like a certain bespectacled young wizard - sans the lightning-shaped scar. It's too bad his adventures don't have the same enchanting quality..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
1.5 of 4

“..Freudenthal succeeds in focusing on the characters and not overdoing the CGI stuff. The problem is that there's not much to the characters..”
by Andrew Wagaman [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
“..an epic showcase for mediocre CGI and slapdash screenwriting..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

“.."Sea of Monsters," unfortunately, is a clueless and bland follow-up featuring an uninspired quest and a startling amount of cheap-looking CGI..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

by Hal Boedeker [Orlando Sentinel]
