Let's start with the positive: the movie looks great, the visuals and effects really work. Little else does, though. The cast acts wooden, the story is predictable and boring, borrowing many elements from Gladiator and the end is cheesy as hell.
Overall a real waste of time. Jens S Super Reviewer. Dec 25, Carlos M Super Reviewer. Aug 24, If you don't know the story but seen the trailer then you will probably guess how it all ends, It did feel like a B-movie version of Gladiator, With some poor acting and dialogue, It plods along with some ok action scenes nothing new, I must admit when the volcano erupts it got better, The effects were pretty good and entertaining, I can't comment on the 3D as I watched the 2D version but I would of thought it wouldn't of made a great deal of difference, It's an ok film with some ok action, Great special effects but nothing more.
Jamie C Super Reviewer. Aug 15, The volcano ain't the only disaster vying for screen time in this block-bust of a flick.
Chief among the disasters is Kiefer Sutherland, who puts on ill-fitting airs and an absurd British accent that seems to have been developed to entertain the minions at a children's garden party in North Hollywood.
Kit Harington has lost any luster rubbed off from the Game of Thrones series, deadpanning his way through the muddle. The script is silly and defies probability.
However, the special effects are pretty awesome with lots of hell fire and explosions to entertain the otherwise bored audience.

Pompeii was the fourth time that director Anderson used 3D cameras in his films, the first being Resident Evil: Afterlife in Resident Evil producers Jeremy Bolt and Don Carmody reunited with Anderson for the film.
FilmDistrict bought the distribution rights in the US, and because of Sony 's relationship with the filmmakers, they chose to release the film with TriStar Pictures.
Pompeii grossed ten million in its opening weekend, finishing in third, against strong competition from The Lego Movie. The film won the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television 's Golden Screen Award for as the year's top-grossing Canadian film.
Some critics were rather favorable as shown by Vulture. And whether it's elaborate gladiatorial battles or a chariot chase through a burning city, Anderson directs with precision, rhythm, and ruthlessness — he has an eye and an ear for violence, for the visceral impact of a kill.
At his best, he creates action sequences in which you feel anything might happen, even though you usually know how they'll turn out.
And the ones in Pompeii are more engaging than those of any superhero movie I saw last year Meanwhile, the disaster renders the villains even pettier, and the devoted lovers even more romantic.
That is all as it should be. From Bulwer-Lytton to Leone, the Pompeii story has never not been schlock: It ain't the Bible, and it ain't Homer.
In this gorgeous, silly, exciting new version, it finds its level. Pompeii 3-D wants merely to entertain. And it does, proudly.
Harington later joked about the film's reception on Saturday Night Live , remarking that the movie was "more of a disaster than the event it was based on.
The film relies for its reconstruction of historical events on two letters from Pliny the Younger to the Roman historian, Tacitus.
It opens with the quotation from Pliny: "You could hear the shrieks of women, the wailing of infants, and the shouting of men; some were calling their parents, others their children or their wives, trying to recognize them by their voices.
People bewailed their own fate or that of their relatives, and there were some who prayed for death in their terror of dying.
Many besought the aid of the gods, but still more imagined there were no gods left, and that the universe was plunged into eternal darkness for evermore.
The depiction of the eruption is based on eruptions which occurred all over the world over the last ten years. Anderson cites the volcanic eruption of Mount Etna in Italy and various eruptions of Japanese volcanoes as specific examples of volcanic eruptions which the production crew observed through footage which has been captured on film.
The animation team was so concerned with realism in the eruption that they would always have real photographs and footage of real eruptions visible to them on separate screens as they put together the eruption of Mount Vesuvius for the film.

The Mask of Zorro Jul. Descendants 2 Jul. It was watchable, but don't be expecting a fabulous plot that you haven't seen dozens of times in other better movies.
The bad writing had most of the actors come off sounding like lifeless wooden statues that would say and do very unbelievable things just to keep the story going.
Everything was very predictable. So predictable, in fact, there were a couple of moments I could have sworn I did see it before! This was a good example why I typically do no like 3D movies.
Having some good 3D effects is not a valid excuse for making a bad movie!! This definitely could have been much better! This was a complete waste fo time.
Here are the main reasons: 1. The performance by the main characters was very poor and artificial. The director did a bad job, as did the editor.
The main story is weak and uninspired. Dialogue is poor and boring. The whole story is completely dubious and it is hard to take the movie seriously.
Historically speaking, the film sacrifices the real events that occurred for the sake of extra special effects. The fact that two cities were destroyed before anything got to Pompeii is ignored completely.
The 'fire rain' on Pompeii also never happened, as did the tsunami. It simply made no sense to add everything but the kitchen sink into this movie.
This film claims to be based on real events, when it clearly isn't in the most important aspects of what happened that day. In Pompeii, people died because they inhaled the smoke, not because fire rained down on them or tsunamis washed them away.
The arena stadium was never destroyed by the earhquake and it still stands in Pompeii to this day. Dubious to the extreme. Overall very very poor.
Many people are out there saying it's "historically inaccurate", it's "a remade of gladiator WITH A VOLCANO! And in many aspects this is better than , Volcano, or other movies like these.
For starters, there is an actual plot to the movie before the volcano erupts. Other things I liked: The gladiatorial theme is well presented.
You can see people who hate being a gladiator, people who are just waiting for their freedom, people who believe they are gods in the arena, and so on, and you can watch how the majority of Romans loved these shows, but some didn't.
You can make yourself an idea of the weather of that theme. The romance is believable. I mean, it happens very fast, but it's not Disney's "Real Love" They are just two people who LIKE each other caught in the massive chaos of a volcano, not much more.
Not only the gigantic explosion and lava bombs, and tsunamis. Also the small things, like the views of the city in the background, and the aerial shots.
The city was amazing. People complain "Pompeii is not a port city" Well, actually it WAS, but the eruption changed the shape of the coastline.
And the fact that THAT city shown in the movie WAS Pompeii. They actually shoot in place and then recreated the city out of the remainings using CGI.
So the grid shape, the walls and everything is in place just as it was years ago. Archaeologists have in fact praised the director for his recreation of the city the volcano.
It's the star of the movie without a doubt. It seems to have almost a personality. The way the eruption happened was very close to what actually happened.
Some artistic liberties were made for the sake of entertaining. The ending. It was amazing. I can't spoil it for you, but making it in any other way would have damaged the quality of the film.
The acting. It was really good for what I was expecting. Milo surprised me a lot, because I could really believe him as a lead man.
The girl also. She seemed so plain in photos, but once the movie started I could say she nailed the part perfectly and was by no means just "miss fanservice", as girls in these kinds of movies tend to be.
The real surprise was Atticus. The actor totally stealed the movie for himself in every scene, something that was perfect for an invicted champion in the peak of his gladiatorial career.
What didn't I like? The fact that the other famous city in the vicinity of Vesubius Herculaeum, I think it's called wasn't showed in the aerial shots.
I mean, obviously the movie would be to complicated if we include it in the plot, but an aerial cameo of this other city would have been a fine addition to the movie, and would have improved the accuracy of it.
What a piece of crap wannabe blockbuster. Well, my time was wasted anyway The plot is the epitome of stupidity: shallow characters and a predictable story made me wonder what the director was thinking.
The history of Pompeii and its fate was completely ignored I have visited Pompeii myself - the tsunami scene was only one of the non sense historical goofs.
The movie end is absolutely stupid and I was relieved it finally ended. Pieces of a Woman Drama , Canada , Hungary , USA. Lucky Chan-sil Drama , Fantasy , Romance , Korea.
