Synopsis: In order to restore their dying safe haven, the son of Poseidon and his friends embark on a quest to the Sea of Monsters to find the mythical Golden Fleece while trying to stop an ancient evil from rising.

Reaction: The movie plays out a bit more blandly than the book, but there's still plenty of fun to be had here.
