No warning. No escape.
Set in 79 A.D., POMPEII tells the epic story of Milo, a slave turned invincible gladiator who finds himself in a race against time to save his true love Cassia, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant who has been unwillingly betrothed to a corrupt Roman Senator. As Mount Vesuvius erupts in a torrent of blazing lava, Milo must fight his way out of the arena in order to save his beloved as the once magnificent Pompeii crumbles around him.

It all depends on you. If you want to watch an original and profound movie and learn something about the Roman Empire, just forget it. If you want to watch a effect ridden action adventure, you are going to like this. It is not the movie of the year but I surely had a great time watching it.

Someone should start a Kickstarter to raise money for Kit Harington to get acting lessons.

Special effects are amazing, ok, but it's a bad and fair copy of Gladiator, mixed up with a poor plot and lovestory. I hate they adapted history to special effects needs (that fucking fireballs, seriously?! c'mon!!) People died buried in the ash, the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum were obliterated and buried underneath massive pyroclastic surges and ashfall deposits, but not fireballs.. even director said it.
Soundtrack is really good, 'tho.
But overall it's... meh....
