What do you get when you combine Titanic's callous exploitation of a major historical tragedy with the acting talents of vegetable Kit Harrington? This insipid piece of garbage. At least Titanic managed to make the sinking of the titular ship exciting and spectacular. This film, on the other hand, is given a great big sodding volcanic eruption and it managed to make me yawn!

Okay the director of this movie ripped off titanic and gladiator. Just before the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, a slave bound for Naples works to get back home to save both the woman he loves and his friend who is a gladiator trapped in the coliseum. This movie is bad and I mean really bad, I don't get why critics are saying that this film is not as bad as people but this movie was terrible and dull.

“Only death is freedom for a gladiator.”
The movie “Pompeii” isn’t really a disaster. Of course, it is not in favor of this film that the unraveling is already known in advance. So it’s not so that you are going to look up surprised as the end credits are scrolling over the screen and you look stunned at the screen, stammering and muttering in yourself “Damn, I really didn’t see this coming !”. If you are going to enumerate the disaster movies, you get a long list . Of course, the content of such films is already known in advance. In “The Poseidon Adventure” and “Titanic” the ships in the respective films run into some trouble. In “Twister”, the twisters made a mess. “2012” was about the year 2012 when the world is experiencing a major flood. …

Since the brilliant spartacus tv series there seems to be quite a few gladiator movies disguised as other things. i.e the legend of hercules and this one. ,This is basically a gladiator movie centred in pompei, kit harrington( game of thrones) plays the slave gladiator with kither sutherland as the evil roman. cue emily browning as the love interest that he tries to save when the volcano erupts.
You can tell this is a bad movie within a few minutes. kit puts on a decent performance but elsewhere the majority is bad cliche acting bad casting, stolen scenes from other movies . bad dialogue. bad direction and fight scenes and . to many close up wonky annoying camera shots.. they should of hired the spartacus series crew to help and show them how its meant to be done.
saying all that , …
