Watching the first Percy Jackson movie for the second time, together with the new Sea of Monsters sequel, I find that I fail to understand why the almighty gods do not help at all, or at least interfere, when the villain does something that threaten the world and the gods themselves.  If this is explained in the books, it is not shown in the movies.  Anyway, this sequel is more of the same as the first one – those who liked the fast-paced adventure and monster battles of the first movie, without requiring it to have more depth, richer world, or unique characters, should like this one as well.  The climactic battle seems too easy though.  Those who did not like the first movie would not like this either.
