REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..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..”
by Jordan Mintzer [Hollywood Reporter]
“..when not focused on Vesuvius, Pompeii is dull sword-and-sandal campy theatrics..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..this team-up between the director of "AVP: Alien vs. Predator" (Paul W.S. Anderson) and the star of "Sucker Punch" (Emily Browning) is as awful as you feared it might be..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]
