  • If you think of Pompeii as a ride, a conveyance for special effects, and not anything resembling an emotional experience, indifference can almost be a good thing. show more

  • It’s impossible to find anything that grabs you in Pompeii. This lumpen adventure with a misguided romance buries anything in the disaster-flick genre that might have been a blast. show more

  • While Anderson excels in the film’s many moments of digital doom-and-gloom, he can’t deliver a single authentic emotion between the two star-crossed leads, leaving us with a sooty aftertaste of having sat through one very loud rendition of Titanic in togas. show more

    magnifico! i am so, so glad i saw "pompeii" tonight! this is the finest movie ever made, in my opinion! the story line, the music, the special effects! everyone deserves an academy award, in my opinion. how did they make this movie? how? this is a true story, people! see it!! i want this movie for my own private collection! i have read some of the stupid, idiotic reviews other people have given it! how dare they say the things they say? this movie, mark my word, will go down in history, as one of the most technically perfect, beautiful, well-wrought, absolutely beautiful movies ever, ever made!!
