Synopsis

Set in 79 A.D., POMPEII tells the epic story of Milo (Kit Harrington), a slave turned invincible gladiator who is known as “The Celt." He is forced to participate in an arena battle with a noble fighter, Atticus. Milo crosses paths with Cassia (Emily Browning), the daughter of a wealthy merchant who has been unwillingly betrothed to a corrupt Roman Senator. Milo offers to free Cassia who refuses to put him in danger.

As Mount Vesuvius erupts in a torrent of blazing lava, Milo must fight his way out of the arena in order to save his beloved Cassia as the once magnificent Pompeii crumbles around him.

  • 1 star "horrible - tried to be a Titanic and Gladiator mix - it went horribly wrong."
  • 4 stars "On my earlier review, I forgot to mention; the acting on this movie was really good. The 2 protagonists are a good match. The gladiators matches are, YES, bloody but so where the matches in the arenas of imperial Rome."
  • 3 stars "I used to live about 40 mi. from Mount Vesuvius before moving to Canada. Every time it made noise, our grounds would ramble and we would get a layer of ash everywhere. I have been in Pompeii (the excavation) many times. It is eerie walking the grounds already uncovered. About the movie... The special effects are amazing. I was disappointed this movie's script doesn't even touch upon the fact that Pompeii had become a city of corruption, a city of many sins, a city of perversions for the Roman elites. While watching this movie, I couldn't help but make comparisons to the Big Flood, Sodom and Gomorrah and other calamities that have plagued our planet throughout history. Neverthel"
