'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters' is a step down from the first movie in the series, 'Percy Jackson & the Olympians: the Lightning Thief.' 'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters' doesn't do anything unique with its 3-D format and makes poor use of its Greek mythology source material.
The sequel to 'Percy Jackson and the Olympians' will be directed by 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' director Thor Freudenthal. Christopher Columbus, who directed the first 'Percy Jackson and the Olympians,' will be the film's producer.
