Director: Paul W. S. Anderson.
Running Time: 104 minutes.
Synopsis: Slave-turned-fighter Milo (Kit Harington) is shipped to Pompeii to take part in a Gladiatorial battle. Whilst there he encounters Corvus (Kiefer Sutherland), the man who butchered his family. Meanwhile Mount Vesuvius, which overlooks the city, decides to reclaim the land.
Paul W. S. Anderson isn’t a director synonymous with critically acclaimed films; that’s the other Paul Anderson, the one with a ‘T’ in the middle. He does, however, know how to make guilty pleasures (who doesn’t love Mortal Kombat?), and there’s a reason why so many Resident Evil movies get made. Pompeii has all the makings of the director’s calling-cards, but it won’t get any plaudits for originality. We all know about the real-life destruction of Pompeii, and the film showcases the devastation really well. »
