[5.25/10] Pompeii [3D] (2013)

Pompeii [3D] (2014)

Quick Review: Everything this sword-and-sandal epic wannabe offers in its first hour is a clumsy narrative, questionable acting, lots of cheesy dialogues, a decent fight or two, and luckily some remarkable CGI backdrops to help you forget its inconsistency, but as soon as the volcano erupts, “Pompeii” instantly transforms into an eye-popping 3D spectacle, that is truly worth-seeing on the big screen. Too bad all the cool stuff comes a bit late.

I had a feeling the special effects would be the only good part of this movie.

Alex, you're pretty much right. There are a couple of good fights too.

LOL This movie is a total ripoff of an 80's miniseries entitled The Last Days of Pompeii, in which a gladiator falls for a slave girl and fights to save her when Vesuvius blows. I refuse to pay to this unoriginal piece of garbage.

Mel, you might be right, but I still don't regret seeing it in the theater. The special effects alone were worth it. ;)
