Review: Pompeii retells the story of when the volcano, Mt. Vesuvius, erupted and left the entire city in ashes around 79 AD. In this version of the story leading up to that event, Milo (Kit Harington) is a Celtic slave who is constantly thrown into the gladiator arena to fight for his life. The combat scenes are amazing with skillful choreography and visuals that put up close and personal with the buff warriors and their rippling abs and muscles!! When he catches the eye of the princess of Pompeii, it sparks the start of their romance. But will their newfound love help them survive the erupting volcano?? See for yourself.
I give Pompeiione thumbs up.
