Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters Review - Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters Movie ReviewSep 1, 2013News Purely on a concept level, Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters had so much going for it: A postmodernist 3-D film with a cyclops who, because of his one-eyed nature, can’t perceive visual depth - something that would’ve had Jean-Luc Godard salivating; an inquisitive look at the Bermuda triangle which to me, personally, is a subject of tremendous fascination; and a plethora of curiously fanciful characters and themes, something that a filmmaker like Guillermo Del Toro would’ve made gold out of. This is essentially an adventure film. There is little by way of character development, the film plays around with itself shuttling between typical tropes of adventure-cinema and deconstructive gags on the same. This isn’t really a superhero film although it does evoke the what-it-means-to-be-superhero notion in just one scene, but the eponymous character’s (and his half-brother’s) existential crises; the relationship between them considering that they learn about each other’s existence after almost crossing their teenage here is played out so matter-of-factly, not even making an effort to make sure that we care. Where the lack of “drama” could and should have been one the film’s strengths considering that the pastiche portions work a lot better, here is a film that wants us to empathize with the characters, be invested in their emotional journeys and for that, it’s too superficial and silly. As for the adventure bit, a sense of wonder is what one seeks from such films and even today’s 3yr-olds have seen better stuff than this. That may be partly because one can’t see anything at all in this film, thanks to the monstrously darkening 3-D.Mohit Patil Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters Review - Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters Movie Review Sep 1, 2013
