Pompeii 3D is a swords-and-sandals disaster epic that contains all the B-movie tropes you might hope for... The only element missing is a decent script.
April 23, 2015
Hammy performances, poor editing, straight-to-DVD special effects, and bland direction.
May 13, 2014
It's entertainingly silly stuff with an 'oh, no - they wouldn't?' finale of the ooziest toasted cheese.
May 4, 2014
Rubbish, then, but laughable rubbish - often more "with it" than "at it".
May 2, 2014
It's all preposterously enjoyable, far more so than those impervious superheroes chucking each other about yet again.
May 1, 2014
Undoubtedly watchable.

Finally, Mount Vesuvius erupts in a fury, possibly in response to the dialogue it has been forced to hear, and all of Pompeii resembles an explosion in a crematorium.
May 1, 2014
Better than it had any right to be.
April 27, 2014
Over-reaching and unintentionally amusing, this is straight-to-video quality inexplicably delivered at blockbuster scale. A thunderous volca-NO.
March 21, 2014
It's an average modern actioner: driven by technology, careless of the past, casually insulting to the audience, mindless in its violence. Vesuvius 1, movie-lovers nil.
March 14, 2014
It never aims at anything more than the most superficial entertainment.

Wherefore art thou, Steve Reeves?
February 23, 2014
Is it wrong to root for the volcano?
February 21, 2014
Parmageddon is nigh in this cheesy action melodrama that feels both overheated with plot developments, yet strangely curdled from a lack of histrionics that might have redeemed it as fun trash.
February 21, 2014
Narrative has never been Anderson's strength; the story here is a corny overhaul of James Cameron's already-corny Titanic.
February 21, 2014
No matter how much lava is afoot, there's always time to impale one more person with a sword.
February 21, 2014
The closing images-of a self-annihilating, all-consuming passion that will be preserved for centuries-[obliterate] the line between the ridiculous and the sublime.
February 21, 2014
A mindless but watchable fondue pot of high-calorie visuals and ready-made plotting ...
February 21, 2014
If you were hoping 'Pompeii' would ditch the lava in exchange for nonsensical political and romantic melodrama, Paul W.S. Anderson's latest is for you - and probably only you.
February 21, 2014
More fun than any civilization's fiery extinction should ever be, Paul W.S. Anderson's Pompeii 3-D is gloriously exciting kitsch - a poor man's Titanic crossed with an even poorer man's Gladiator.
