POMPEII (2014) – My rating 6.5/10

PompeiiThis was a romantic love story set in Pompeii.  It’s a story most know well.  Like Titanic, a romantic twist make the story more likable and more interesting.  However, it seems no matter how hard Hollywood tries, they cannot produce another Titanic.  Pompeii tells it’s own story about the love of a former slave turned gladiator and a woman of royalty named Cassia (Emily Browning).  The gladiator (Milo) is played by none other than the gorgeous Kit Harington,  who plays John Snow on The Game of Thrones.  Keeping true to form, Milo is a bad ass gladiator who is undefeated.  Like the movie, Gladiators with Russell Crow and Djimon Hounsou , Milo meets another gladiator named Atticus (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) who, in the end, is pitted against him for the kill.  Together they must find a way around this or be killed.  One is facing freedom and the other is facing true love, both facing a volcano.  It’s interesting to see what kind of decisions they make regarding their friendship and future.  In the meanwhile, Mount Vesuvius  is rumbling and threatening everyone’s future.  A slight problem with Cassia is the senator named Corvus (Kiefer Sutherland) who is hell bent on marrying her.  She does not love or like him.  It’s a nice story but sad.  It’s on DVD and is worth your time to watch it.
