This review is from: The Last Days of Pompeii - 3-DVD Set (DVD)
I have been waiting for years for this DVD to be released in the UK. Finally after two decades I could wait no longer - even my patience wears thin eventually. Germany released this some time ago. Other than the titles you can watch the whole thing in English. Although the production does not compare to Rome from HBO this is still an amazing mini series. The cast are fantastic as are the sets and costumes. The story is far fetched but then this was made in the 80s and it shows. Think Dynasty set in Pompeii with big hair and bigger eye make up not to mention the camera close ups. This is however very enjoyable and a great escape from the drudgeries of life. Watch it on a cold and miserable afternoon. Bliss.
