Good CGI, otherwise pretty flat
The CGI for the character Kronos was imagined in an interesting way. Other than that, this film sort of limps along. Kind of fun, but just needs a bit (OK , a lot) more zip to make it work.Reviewed by bukster

Diverting enough - the director, Thor Freudenthal, is savvy with effects and keeps his young cast on point.Click to read full review.

There’s really nothing to recommend ‘Sea of Monsters’: the young cast are smug and forgettable; the action sequences barely get going before they’re over; and the whole affair is riddled with product placement and pop cultural references – one girl even seems to possess a magic iPad.Click to read full review.
The final showdown whisks up the requisite excitement, but the open-ended coda feels like an optimistic throw of the dice from the franchise showing meagre signs of Harry Potter longevity.Click to read full review.
An epic showcase for mediocre CGI and slapdash screenwriting.Click to read full review.
