Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson. With Kit Harington, Emily Browning, Kiefer Sutherland, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. A slave-turned-gladiator finds himself in a race against time to save his true love, who has been betrothed to a corrupt Roman Senator. As Mount Vesuvius erupts, he must fight to save his beloved as Pompeii crumbles around him.
Probably interesting in 3D when it came out, but ultimately just a somewhat interesting disaster picture. It had a little bit of heart, but has a plot as completely predictable as the historical one we already knew was coming. Some reasonable special effects, but mediocre looking in high def on television.
