Movie Info

In the year 79 A.D., the ancient city of Pompeii was transformed from a thriving community to a wasteland in little more than a day when the massive volcano Mount Vesuvius erupted, raining billions of tons of lava, stone, and ash upon the nearby city. Pompeii: The Last Day is a docudrama which though state-of-the-art special effects recreates the destruction of Pompeii while depicting the human drama as the people of the city must either flee their homes or face certain death. Originally produced for broadcast by the BBC, Pompeii: The Last Day stars Jonathan Firth, Neji Nejah, Rachel Atkins and Jim Carter. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Pompeii: The Last Day

I really enjoy most educational documentaries about Pompeii. This docu-drama was good, but didn't shed any new light on things. Basically they fabricated some storylines from some notes the tried to piece together. There are far better things to watch on Netflix.
