I watched this movie at the cinema with my 11 year old daughter, and it was an enjoyable enough flick in the style of Gladiator (Ridley Scott/Russell Crowe). This movie is basically a love story between a slave named Milo, who possesses formidable fighting skills (think Russell Crowe in Gladiator), and a beautiful noblewoman, Cassia. Kit Harrington (famous as a result of his role in Game of Thrones) has the lead in this sword and sandals epic, and makes the most of a role which is taken over by the CGI in the second half of the movie. He is made a Roman slave and taken to the arenas of Pompeii, during which he becomes romantically involved with Cassia. Cassia's father, a Roman general named Corvus (played with a toe-curling English accent by the fish out of water Keifer Sutherland), disapproves of his daughter's choice in men, and determines that Milo needs to be removed from Cassia's life. The last half hour of the movie, when the volcano erupts and the city is hit by a tsunami, is a very impressive exercise in CGI. You watch Milo and Cassia fight for survival against rivers of molten lava and the ocean when it gets whipped up by the tsunami. Of course, the big final showdown is between Milo and the baddie Corvus, and I won't let slip how they resolve their differences. Keifer Sutherland is a charismatic and great actor, but his attempt here at an English accent unfortunately lends an unintended comical aspect to the film. Kit Harrington is a solid and worthy, if slightly uninspiring hero, reminiscent perhaps of L.A. Law's Harry Hamlin in the original Clash of the Titans. Suffice it to say, the film has its drawbacks, with just a little too much hokum to let you keep a straight face.Read more ›

A very enjoyable film. Wonderful scenes in the arenas and with the volcano bursting. A great performance from Kit Harrington (Game of Thrones).
Well worth seeing.

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.

I really liked it, people these days are too quick to criticise, to say it wasn't realistic is like saying...Gone with the Wind and Ben Hur are not, but still great films, films are supposed to be about entertainment and it was, I think if some of the great films of the past were released today they would be slagged off for the same reasons this was, its good to see an old style epic for a change

OK so it's Spartacus meets Gladiator, whilst not being as gory and visceral as the former and not as epic as the latter, but Pompeii is still a thoroughly entertaining movie. The fight scenes are very well choreographed and the disaster scenes are truly spectacular. There's an impressive use of 3D here, with a few genuine projection effects which just may make you duck. Surround sound is also worthy of note and, if you own a decent 5.1 system, you are in for a treat. The plot is almost incidental to the eye-candy, but does throw up an unexpected moment or two and the love theme I found genuinely moving. Having visited Pompeii, I was also impressed by how accurately the streets were recreated.

Obviously not Oscar material, but Pompeii is well worth adding to your collection if you're a sandals 'n swords fan and are looking for something that show-cases the 3D Blu-ray medium.

not the best film ever, but nevertheless worth a watch. nice family entertainment - not too much sex, not too much violence and not too much gore and no swearing! just a good clean love story with a nice bit of history thrown in and some amazing special effects.
Also thought Kit Harrington was great in it, but then I also loved him in Game of Thrones
