I bought this one at Best Buy in Concord, New Hampshire. I really liked this one. A natural disaster movie with a Love story tied in. So glad I bought this one. It is worth the money !
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
A 3-D outing that looks gorgeous!
Pompeii is not the best movie in the world, and it is not the worst. I purchased this movie for a number reasons, one, it cost $5 on sale and two, it's 3-D. And I'm just getting into 3-D, and I enjoyed it. Because it was 3-D, and I did enjoy the characters, and the storyline. I will admit, I'm glad I didn't have to try to write a story about a volcano exploding. But as I said I enjoyed watching the characters and the setting. Very nice period piece.
The disc looked fantastic and sounded great. It has deleted scenes, filmmakers commentary, and ultraviolet digital, among other things.
It was directed by Paul WS Anderson, a director whose work I enjoy. He shot it in 3-D which which gives it that wonderful depth that you don't get with conversion all the time. This look excellent.
So all in all I'm glad I purchased this movie, and I did enjoy watching it, and looking forward to watching it again.
I saw the movie on HBO and liked it. it is really entertaining. The acting is just okay, but special effects and destruction of Pompeii by volcano is superb. This is why I gave it 4 stars. The Blu Ray disc is very good. The video and audio are both excellent. Special features are also good. It also comes with a UV digital copy of the movie which is a bonus. Best Buy had the 3D/2D Blu Ray package on sale at an unbeatable price. Get it if it is still on sale at Best Buy. Recommended. Enjoy.
I grew up on these type movies. I still find them more exciting cause there are no single weapon to destroy your enemies. It's Mano e Mano Only the stronger survive. The plot line is typical for this era of history. Actors played their parts well.
I've seen past movies regarding Mt Vesuvius but this one had more meaning. For one; the movie ends with no one to save. And the couple have a special meaning. I have the opportunity to see the couple in a glass case while visiting the ruins of Pompeii when I was in the Navy.
