By Tom Russo
Anderson’s stab at rendering the Mount Vesuvius catastrophe with a 3-D “Titanic” gloss.
By Roger Moore
What Anderson delivers this one time is a genuine spectacle, a gladiator movie with a volcano in the middle of it.
This is a surprisingly old-fashioned disaster movie. In point of fact its old-fashioned-ness is really the only surprising thing about this...
New York Post
By Lou Lumenick
A campy guilty pleasure that serves up a “Gladiator’’ knockoff as an appetizer to the impressively flame-filled main course.
By Rene Rodriguez
The movie is so grand in scale that you can’t help surrender to the spectacle, even if the stuff that’s going on with the people in the...

I don't know who writes the critic reviews!! Four of us (60+) just returned from seeing Pompeii and we all liked it very much (not for young children as it might be too frightening). The graphics...
This was a great story line and the 3D effects were great !! It was more of an action packed romance and that works out great for a couple of bikers like my wife and I. I am considering purchasing a...
It was worth the watch
I went in with no expectations and was pleased. The acting and FX were very good, plot was predictable although well written, and the ending was okay. There were some really good scenes of dramatic...
An Entertaining Look
It's an entertaining attempt at telling the story of the people devastated by this historical event. How they (may have) lived, loved and died. Found it a bit lacking, since this attempt was focused...
