Percy-Jackson-Sea-of-Monsters-2013-DVD-CoverWhen Rick Riordan says everything old is new again, he really means it. He has taken ancient myth and legend and combined it with post-modern society and brought us the Percy Jackson series of books. This second film from the series is a wonderful take on the second book of the series. I do hope this film franchise keeps running! We are once again brought into the story by the dream team of Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman), a son of Posiden, Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario), and their satyr guide, Grover (Brandon T. Jackson). Annabeth relives her past in a short tale of woe for another child of the most powerful of the Greek Gods, Zeus. As children trying to reach the protective camp, Annabeth, Grover, Luke, and another girl, Talia, were being chased by two cyclops. In the pursuit, Talia tried to stop the cyclops to let the other kids get away, but was defeated. Talia was a child of Zeus, and everyone thought she was killed, but there was a very faint life force left in her, and Zeus used this to create a new life for Talia, as a tree protecting the camp, just as Talia did for her young friends. Also, because of this incident, Annabeth developed a hatred for cyclops.

A fantastic fun ride for the whole family of an ancient Greek classic with a modern day twist. Percy Jackson & The Olympians : The Lightning Thief is based on the books written by Rick Riordan. It is the story of a young boy who finds out that he is the some of one of the three most powerful gods of Olympus. He is an awkward teen who would rather hide at the bottom of the pool then deal with what is going on around him. At least that is the way that he was till he is accused of stealing the weapon of Zeus (Sean Bean) and Hades (Steve Coogan) snatches his mother to the underworld. It is now up to Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman), his junior protector Grover Underwood (Brandon T. Jackson) and his newest friend, the daughter of Athena (Melina Kanakaredes), Annabeth Chase (Alexandra Daddario) to find the weapon and rescue his mother.
