When the gods are away; the kids will play. Or in Percy Jackson & The Olympians: Sea of Monsters, maybe go to extra lengths to make a difference. Continuing the adaptation of author Rick Riordan's young readers book series into films, Sea of Monsters follows the 2010 film Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, which is about Greek Myth of gods and monsters.
The adventure involves children of the Greek gods. Percy (Logan Lerman), who has a mortal mother, has only recently learned he's the son of Greek sea god Poseidon. Yet as he sticks his hand in a body of water and beckons for a sign that his father hears him, Percy gets no such response.
Percy is training at Camp Half-Blood along with other children of gods, but it's a dark mood there. Many are still mourning the loss of their friend Thalia. In a previous episode, she was turned into a tree. With the help from a couple of silly teachers Percy gets his training and his position in society.
Mr. D. (Stanley Tucci) swiftly walks around teaching the kids certain things, but he's often leaving off the end of the conversation leaving the kids to mostly decide their own course. Meanwhile, Chiron (Anthony Head), who is a Centaur (half-man, half-horse) provides more educational aspects to the campers and options when they must face some huge battles.
The Camp is no longer safe as monsters are invading and Thalia's tree, once the barrier gate to the Camp, has been poisoned. During the Camp games the young people battle to be the leaders. Percy always seems to come in second place behind Clarisse (Leven Rambin).
