sense of recognition
12 May 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

In general an entertaining movie, though definitely not great. However a strange feeling of deja vu possessed me when watching. It seemed to me like some story parts have been borrowed from great titles like Spartacus and Ben Hur.

Also to obvious sometimes the city parts (like the arena for example) look a bit fake. The acting is average, sometimes below average. The relationships between slaves and Romans sometimes look a bit unhistorical.

However, the great pictures of the Vesuvius volcano lift things back to a more entertaining level. This movie is nice for an evening of uncomplicated watching. If you don't expect too much, you may appreciate this one.
