SATUR­DAY PERCY JACK­SON: SEA OF MON­STERS

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

6.30PM, TDT ★★★

In the first Percy Jack­son movie, this oh- so- mod­ern teenage son of an an­cient Greek god seemed like too much of a home- brand Harry Pot­ter for his own good. As played by Lo­gan Lerman, Percy re­mains as blandly charisma- chal­lenged as ever. How­ever, the se­cond set of ad­ven­tures ripped from the books of best­selling au­thor Rick Rior­dan of­fers far more fun and fizz. Though you’ll never be hang­ing on the edge of your seat, Percy and his posse of earth­bound higher be­ings – hunt­ing for the fa­bled Golden Fleece in the Ber­muda Tri­an­gle – are quite OK to hang out with for a while.
