POMPEII (Theatrical Release USA 2014)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Pompeii—despite the special effects lacking high quality—has a solid storyline. Actors have been well chosen with Kiefer Sutherland, the strongest actor, playing a ruthless senator. Kit Harrington plays his character with exceptional realism. Be aware that this film begins with scenes of burned victims from the Pompeii eruption and the later gladiator fights are violent. Overall the movie portrays, in good detail, how life stories are interrupted as a result of volcanic eruption.
