Performers, Cast and Crew:
Los Angeles Times - 02/20/2014
"Part sword-and-sandal spectacle, part disaster epic, POMPEII accomplishes its ambitious agenda to largely engrossing effect."
Entertainment Weekly - 03/03/2014
"[T]here's plenty of impressive CGI..."
RogerEbert.com - 02/21/2014
"[T]he action scenes are choice, and once the clouds of ash and shooting fire and churning seas start up, POMPEII achieves a momentum that most sensationalist studio fare can't touch."
A.V. Club - 02/20/2014
"POMPEII's second half is tailor-made for Anderson's established skill set...with many scenes set in and under a gladiatorial amphitheatre that recalls the arenas, subterranean tunnels, and cavernous vessels of Anderson's best movies."
Hollywood Reporter - 02/19/2014
"Once Vesuvius blows, it's off to the races....These moments are clearly where Anderson thrives, cutting between distant birds-eye views of the devastation below and action-packed snippets..."
Paul W.S. Anderson directs this period disaster film centered on the story of a Pompeii gladiator who races to save his true love as Mount Vesuvius prepares to erupt in A.D. 79. After rising out of slavery to become a gladiator, Milo (Kit Harrington) falls for radiant merchant's daughter Cassia (Emily Browning), who is being coerced into marrying a nefarious Roman Senator. Meanwhile, as the lava starts to flow, Milo must escape the arena and rescue Cassia before they are both turned to ash. CarrieAnne Moss, Adewa Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jared Harris, and Kiefer Sutherland co-star.
