This review is from: Pompeii [DVD] (DVD)
"Pompeii" is a fairly forgettable volcano disaster film set in the last days of Pompeii ,just before Vesuvius erupted. It tells the tale of a British gladiator who is transported to Pompeii and gets involved romantically with a wealthy young woman whose eye he catches while attending to a horse. There are lots of sword fights and gladiatorial battles and toward the end of the film lots of fireballs ,tidal waves and ash clouds to enjoy. Most of the characters were cliched and undeveloped, there wasnt much decent dialogue to be heard and there was nothing in the film that you havent seen before in better films.
