Consensus: It's pretty and packed with action; unfortunately, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters is also waterlogged with characters and plots that can't help but feel derivative.

Whiny, listless and repetitive.

There are plenty of bad films to get riled up about in the summer. "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" isn't one of them. This is harmless tween-centric fun.

A slight but fun romp through Greek mythology with a modern twist...Grown-ups will hate it, but tween-age kids will have a blast.

Precious little about this is particularly memorable, but it's the odd touch of local color that makes these routine acts of derring-do a bit easier to bear.

Even for those missing their Harry Potter fix, this is some weak, watered-down stuff.

CG spectacle trumps character but, as engineered market-fillers go, it's at least cheerfully cheap and not unlikeable: a Poundland Potter, as it were.

Lerman is adroit at looking eager and battle-worthy but not too cocky in a film as much about character development as sword play.

Yes, this is the point in the summer when I outsource my critical judgment to my kids.

For the majority of Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, the titular character spends his time moping over the uncertainty of his heroism.
