Sword-and-sandal disaster epic directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and starring Kit Harington. Set before and during the Mount Vesuvius eruption of 79 AD, the film follows the plight of slave-turned-gladiator Milo (Harington) who falls in love with Cassia (Emily Browning), the daughter of a wealthy merchant who has recently become engaged to Corvus (Kiefer Sutherland), an influential Roman Senator. As the mountain erupts and quickly destroys the city of Pompeii as well as its surrounding communities, Milo must track down his one true love before all hope of survival is annihilated.

'Pompeii' a 'Mediterranean' Jewel of the vast and indeed all powerful 'Roman Empire'
It's residents totally unaware of the danger close by, the year is 79 A.D.
Seventeen years earlier a young boy 'Milo' see's his parents butchered by order of
'Roman' Centurion 'Corvus's (Kiefer Sutherland) Legionnaires, their paths will cross again.
'Milo' the only survivor of his village, is found then sold on to the Romans, he grows up
in 'Londinium' becoming a formidable force in the Gladiatorial arena.
Admired by spectators the Gladiator 'Milo' (Kit Harington) is taken to 'Pompeii' to entertain
eager spectators of the important Roman City.
Early on, there are signs that go unheeded by 'Pompeii's' inhabitants unknowing of what
is yet to come.
Meanwhile the arena is being prepared for the Gladiatorial games to honour their illustrious
visitor, now, Senator, 'Corvus'
After an incident 'Milo' becomes scheduled to face 'Pompeii's' champion 'Atticus' (Adewale
Akinnuoye-Agbaje) in the Gladiatorial finally of the Games, victory would mean freedom by
Roman-Law for 'Atticus'
However there becomes a change in the schedule, 'Milo' and 'Atticus' along with a handful
of fellow Gladiators are pitted against overwhelming odds in a re-enactment of 'Corvus's
celebrated victory over the 'Celts' 17 years or so ago.
'Milo' and 'Atticus' walk away victorious, however after an outburst by 'Milo' 'Corvus' orders
his bodyguard 'The Champion of Rome' to kill 'Milo' - however an inconvenient interruption
to proceedings occurs, 'Mount Vesuvius' begins to erupt, all hell breaks loose.

Started with some Pliny the Younger Quotes. Good start. First few seconds. In my opinion it is a pity that they did not use the real story of Pompeii (& perhaps even the tragic death of Pliny the Elder, as told to us by Pliny the Younger) along with recent archaeological work which shows us what really happened with that eruption, as a base start point for their (rather depressing & implausible) fictional story. Lots of stuff which seems to me (by no means an expert) to be hopelessly inaccurate about the eruption, including a huge tsunami which I don't think was reported at the time, pyroclastic flows apparently hitting the wrong places at the wrong time, a shortened time-frame for the entire eruption process, no real explanation of the suffocating eruption fallout process which ultimately gave us the tragic plaster-cast body shapes in Pompeii, instead of just bare heat-blasted bones in Herculaneum. This film made it sound like survival in Pompeii was utterly impossible, when actually those who left early enough did survive & even poor old Pliny the Elder might have survived, had he been younger & fitter.

To start off, I thoroughly enjoyed Pomepeii, which is what I film is supposed to do. I am also a student studying ancient history and classical archeology, so I feel like I have a right to comment on the accuracy of the film, unlike many of the negative reviews on here.

The film makers perfectly recreated the city of Pompeii based on photography they took from the remains of the town, so A+ for going the extra mile as far as I'm concerned! The 3D effects worked very well and I actually saw someone in the cinema duck out the way from flaming debris!

The acting was very good and I'm very pleased with the casting choice. I also like the opening scene set in Britannia, showing the origins of the main male protagonist Milo. The story line was a bit predictable, but over all still enjoyable.

As far as accuracy is concerned, it's a Hollywood film. Of course it's not going to be completely accurate. Get over it. The film makers exaggerated the effects of the volcano to highlight the disaster and make a more dramatic film. In truth, only about 2000 people out of 20,000 died in Pompeii. Whereas in the film it looks like everyone does. The also combined the devastation of Herculaneum and Pomepeii, again, to make a more dramatic film.

All in all I loved it and would definitely recommend it to friends. And to those who insist on moaning about the accuracy: go and watch a documentary, not a film.

Format: Blu-ray
I saw this film at the cinema yesterday and enjoyed it so much that I've now ordered it from Amazon. I disagree with the negative reviews here and can only say that I found the acting perfectly adequate, the script workmanlike, the music outstanding, the costumes and staging impressive, the gladiatorial scenes sufficiently violent and credible and the special effects of the volcano's eruption highly convincing. I am not a scholar of Roman history so cannot say to what extent the film is faithful to the facts, but this is supposed to be entertainment not a history lesson and, to that extent, it succeeds exceptionally well. One reviewer criticizes the film for supposedly showing the gladiators' arena being destroyed by the volcano whereas, in fact, it survives to this day but, in fact, the film only shows it being damaged by the eruption, not destroyed as alleged, so it is faithful to the facts in this respect. I saw this film after it had run at our cinema for a week, yet the auditorium was full to near capacity, which would not have been the case if it had been damned by word of mouth. The only reason I am not awarding the film five stars is because -as can be seen from the posters- the actor portraying the leading male character is no Russel Crowe -he's too young for the role, sports a tousle of hair more reminiscent of the 1970s than the Roman period and quite frankly, looks like a biceps-challenged wimp out of physical scale with the manly gladiators and Roman soldiers he too easily dispatches in battle. You can't have everything.
