Editorial Reviews

The movie showed the cultures of the time, politics, and the city itself really well. They even showed how messed up the ruler of Rome was during that time as well as those who servered under him. The graphics were good ninus the whole horse chace in the middle of a volcano.

Customer Reviews

The volcano erupts.
Richard S. Gibson
Most importantly, the movie is wildly, historically inaccurate, to the extent that they changed the very nature of the volcano itself.
Denise Hull
I thought the special effects were very good, and that's why I go to these movies.

Nine Things About the Movie “Pompeii”

1. The only thing that most people know about Pompeii is that it was an Italian city destroyed by a volcano and buried in ash a long time ago. So this movie makes up the rest of the story.

2. The plot of the movie is as generic as you can get. You can almost hear the filmmakers say, “Well, the event happened in gladiator times. And it’s about a bunch of people who can’t escape where they are and they all get killed. So let’s make ‘Gladiator’ meets ‘Titanic’. And even though it’s in Italy, let’s make everybody talk with a vague sort-of-British accent.”

3. And that’s exactly what they did. It’s your basic poor-boy/rich girl story. It’s about a boy named Milo that is captured in war, becomes a slave, and then is sent to Pompeii to fight as a gladiator. While there, he meets Cassia, the daughter of the city ruler. They fall in love. Her dad is upset. The usual.

4. Meanwhile, the volcano starts acting up. For some reason, it only happens at night, like the volcano was some serial killer, and people start disappearing.

5. Besides the love story, there is a half-baked political subplot.. Since we all know how the movie ends, the story is not only silly, it’s pointless. There’s no reason to care much about the characters.

6. The last half-hour of the film is all about the destruction of the city. It’s pretty cool to watch, and the 3D effects are well done.

7. The director did take a lot of time to make the city itself historically accurate, basing it on studies of the actual ruins. Historians give the movie points for this.

8. Scientists who study volcanoes say that the depiction of the volcano is also historically accurate, except for when it rains fireballs.

9. This is a simple, old-fashioned disaster movie that offers nothing special in terms of story, but is fun to watch.

Pompeii is the new disaster film from Paul W.S Anderson about, you guessed it, Pompeii! Following the story of Milo (Kit Harrington), a Celt who was put into slavery after his village was attacked and his parents killed, Milo becomes a gladiator, fighting numerous foes within area walls. But it's in Pompeii where Milo's destiny will come to light, falling in love with Cassia (Emily Browning), the daughter of Pompeii's ruler Severus (Jared Harris), and befriending a rival gladiator, Atticus (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). But when Mount Vesuvius begins to tremble and plumes of smoke and ash fall upon the great city, Milo, Atticus and Cassia must escape the city before they are buried by the mountain.

Pompeii isn't a bad movie; it really isn't. The only reason why i gave it four stars (I would give it 3.5 stars if there were an option) is because of all the poor reviews. Anderson's directing here is actually his best to date, better than his Resident Evil films, The Three Musketeers reboot and Event Horizon. His script, on the other hand, was disappointing. It's not that it was poorly written, it's just that there isn't anything new whatsoever. The visual effects were great, but not award-winning. The acting was a mixed bag. Kit Harrington was surprisingly static in the heroic lead role, being uninteresting and the stereotypical hero, but his acting helped keep the character from being completely lifeless. Emily Browning was good as Cassia, but nothing note-worthy. Kiefer Sutherland was actually great as the secondary protagonist, Senator Corvus, the man who killed Milo's mother. He was truly corrupt in his role, and a character you wanted to die horribly (which is good). But it was Adewale Akinnuoye who stole the show as Atticus.

Format: Blu-ray
INREDIENTS:
1. One parts mildly charismatic, ripped, perfectly tanned action hero. British accent required.
2. One parts token African ass-kicker.
3. One parts puffy-lipped, perfectly coiffed damsel-in-distress.
4. One parts good actor hamming it up as agressive bad-guy. British accent optional.
5. Two cups sloooooooo-motion and ramping. CGI bloodspray optional.
6. One cup Titanic: class-breaking romance on the eve of a terrible disaster.
7. One part Gladiator: because GLADIATORS!
8. Six parts sweaty six-packs. Use liberally.
9. One very, very large volcano.
10. One tsunami. Super-size.
11. One bag of historical accuracy. Discard without using.

PROCEDURE:
1. Ripoff every sword-and-sandals movie ever made.
2. Put in lots of explosions, collapsing buildings, and slo-motion. This is actually cool.
3. Put in a forced, cliched love affair. Season with cheese.
4. Suspend disbelief, then take down the remains and burn them.
5. Be over the top in the least subtle way.
6. BAKE in HOT OVEN. Add side dish of revenge, served cold.

SERVES large audience, entertains during action scenes, is silly in the rest. A very fun experience, but not memorable. Seconds unlikely...

Ok so yes, the movie was the whole I can't live with out my love Titanic thing all over again but come on. Pompeii was a goood movie. The writers really did their research. The movie showed the cultures of the time, politics, and the city itself really well. They even showed how messed up the ruler of Rome was during that time as well as those who servered under him. The graphics were good ninus the whole horse chace in the middle of a volcano. (ok I had many proplems with that scene.) The music was beautiful. The fight scenes where awesome and the ending actully ended like a disaster movie should.
I admit the movie does have some flaws but over all it was still a good movie.
