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 ›

Given Hollywood's long-standing tradition of producing sword and sandal epics including highlights such as Ben Hur, Spartacus and Gladiator, this genre has continued well into the current century, fueled by the success of especially the latter at the turn of the millenium. As a result, many more films have been made, some good such as Alexander (Revisited), others mostly sub-par though, such as Last Legion, The Eagle, Centurion and to an extent King Arthur. All the while I had been wondering why nobody had touched the most popular material from this historic era, specifically thinking about two topics: One, why no real several-hundred-million-dollar blockbuster about Julius Caesar had been made (I know several B-movies exist), and two, the same regarding Pompeii. Almost every educated person on the planet had heard about Pompeii, or specifically the Fall of Pompeii, having read somewhere how a bustling Roman city and its inhabitants became victims of a natural disaster, the most famous byproduct of which are the plaster casts of human bodies whose original presence had left voids in the ash layer.

So naturally, a movie about Pompeii would have all the elements necessary to please a 21st century filmgoing crowd without having to borrow anything from fiction. And despite this, the film exaggerates by adding in Return of the King's Mount Doom or "2012" style magma meteors pummeling the city and more starkly, a tsunami wave carrying a trireme into the heart of the city. However, these are still not my main gripe about the film as they are very impressive.

What my main gripe about the film is, is the fact that the performances are sub par, the dialogue is even worse and some people feel miscast. Let's address them one after the other:

To begin with, the cast.

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.

The best thing about this film is Kit Harrington, he is great in action scenes and you get to see him with no top on quite a lot :)
Other than that the main focus of this film is a flimsy love story - Kit and Emily have no chemistry between each other so their relationship was unrealistic and boring - it really brings the film down. There was more chemistry, a believable camaraderie between Kit and the other slaves/gladiators such as Atticus, an interesting character I would've liked to learn more about.
The special effects were pretty good too. Don't watch it for a great story, just watch for the visuals.
