Pompeii Micro Movie Review

February 23, 2014 Leave a comment

Pompeii: Saw it last night. I love historical fiction set in the classical world or in a world before gun powder; Gladiator, 300, Troy or something like Lord of the Rings. I also pay to see these movies in the hopes gaining grist for the mill of my imagination relating to my book, if not through visuals at least imagining how people lived in ancient times. It’s a bonus when the movie is actually fair to good.pompeii-movie-promotional-poster-hdwallmov

Pompeii, although a joy to look at, was one of the cheesiest cliché riddle jokes I’ve ever watched. The story had potential but was so poorly executed it felt watching a football team apply a ridiculous game plan in great uniforms. Lines delivered throughout the movie are worthy of giggles though not the intention. Many of the action scenes are impossible or incredibly cheesy – a poor man’s Gladiator. I begrudgingly give this movie 2 Stars out of 5 because it was so nice to just look at.
