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 enjoyed the movie all the way through. I am not a big advocate of 3D movies as I think they are rip off for getting more money out of us, but this is a movie I would pay to watch in 3D. The visual effects are beyond stunning. I also think they managed to capture the cruelty and prejudice (to the point of genocide) of anyone who was not a Roman. The first half of the movie seems to concentrate on the gladiatorial slaves fighting for their freedom; we hear the angry rumblings of Mount Vesuvius in the background. Being the most famous eruption in history we all knew it was coming, but when the actual eruptions start the movie effects and tension step into high gear.

Watching his whole family/people killed by the Romans a young boy escapes just to be place into slavery and raised as a gladiator. Skilled at killing and with horses his is brought to the city of Pompeii (along the way of course he meets the girl of his dreams), where he is to fight their current champion who is one victory away from earning his freedom. The two form a bond through mutual respect and mutual hatred for the Romans. Now is a twist of fate they must stand together, but how can any mortal stand before a force of nature. I was entertained all the way through the movie either with lots of action and fights or incredible visual effect in the second half of the movie.

If Pliny the Younger saw this he'd turn in his grave. This was not about the suffering of the people of Pompeii. It was standard Hollywood clichéd, corny nonsense made at the expense of that suffering. In fact the people of Pompeii didn't seem to feature at all. The special effects were good, the story was wooden and the acting the same. Gladiators rarely fought to the death as it took far too long to train them and there were a very expensive investment - but this film has little to do with true history. The longer the film went on the more I yawned. The worst bit was when our hero outruns the 450 mph pyroclastic flow. If a Porsche couldn't do it then I'm sure a horse couldn't. This film could of been great. But it ended up being infinitely forgettable and really rather silly.

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.
