Set in 79 A.D., POMPEII tells the epic story of Milo (Kit Harrington), a slave turned invincible gladiator who finds himself in a race against time to save his true love Cassia (Emily Browning), the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant who has been unwillingly betrothed to a corrupt Roman Senator (Kiefer Sutherland). 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.



  • Not as bad as all that

    By Johnnui
    I thought the movie was not too bad but then again I'm a sucker for a sword and sandal epic. Really the biggest drawback, if you can let the anachronisms slide, is Kiefer Sutherland's acting, which for this movie alone deserves a lifetime achievement Razzie.

  • Must watch

    By christinalittle
    I am not an action movie enthusiast but I felt this movie had enough action/romance/thrill in it to keep you entertained the whole time. I will watch it again with my husband.
  • Really Bad

    By ¢$
    The best part for me was how it portrayed the city of Pompell, which was accurate. Everything else was terrible. It was pretty much a rip off of Gladiator, except this was much more corny and romanticized. A lot of the time when there was random explosions and buildings falling, they were just standing there staring at each other. Don't they know that they should clear the area as fast as possible? It was also extremely predictable. In the end, it made me laugh at its atrociousness.
  • entertaining!

    By DokAllan
    The movie was one of the most entertaining movies that I watched. It was a good diversion from a stress.
  • Love the romance in this movie😍

    By Grace L Munslow
    This movie is one of my favorites with mainly the romance in it. The director, writers, producers, and just everyone who made this amazing movie, has an incredible sense of romance. I love how milo and cassia looked together deeply into each other's eyes and saving each other's lives, and their special ending kiss of their last moment together. It was just a perfect kind of romance in any movie and this one had it. That's what got my attention to watching this movie when I saw the trailer :)
  • Worst movie ever

    By No live games
    I am easily entertained but this movie was as bad as Her. Stupid, no surprises, horrible acting.
  • No Regrets

    By Bella787
    I was iffy about watching this movie and saw it on a whim while traveling and I have no regrets about it. Not a movie I'd watch twice in theaters, but definitely a storyline that visually brings the real tragedy to life and a movie I will never forget. Definitely a romantic action movie that my boyfriend and I enjoyed and would rent to watch again at home. Some people say parts of the disaster were not scientifically on par, but the movie is still enjooyable none the less and a story worth re-living through a movie.
  • The BEST movie ever

    By Emily diacont
    Pompeii is a must see movie it has action and romance in it I think everyone should love it yet some people think it's all about having to find all the problems in it I'd like to see those people make a move and when it does terribly I will laugh in there faces
  • Deserves 5 yawns: a total waste of film and time

    By 747whaledriver
    First, the film is strictly a come-on to those who are/were interested in seeing the eruption of Vesuvius — which was a pyroclastic eruption, not the lava-spewing extravaganza depicted. Total waste of a CGI budget, it was that bad... Totally ignoring actual history, the stories weaved together were simply too predictable and utterly unbelievable because of the way historical fact was ignored or abused. Yuck. What an insult — particularly at the prices charged to see this bilious waste of time. The actual historical account of the eruption as witnessed by Pliny the Younger was far more interesting than what Hollywood bulldozed together, and would have been a superior screenplay than what was utilized for this film. Sutherland should sue his agent for defamation of character for sending him this script. This movie should fall into the same category of films such as "Myra Breckenridge,” “Howard the Duck," and "Plan Nine From Outer Space” — quite possibly the worst movies ever made. As it stands, it is elegant proof that if you chain a trillion chimpanzees to sit in front of computer keyboards, one of them is likely to write a movie script this bad. Reading the reviews, it’s not hard to see which reviewers do good recreational drugs. Or watch too much Oprah. Please do yourself a favor and miss it.
