When it’s all said and done Pompeii will be remembered as the movie that reacquainted the world with one of the best actors of his generation. He commanded attention in every scene he was in, even when he had no lines to deliver; and when he delivered his lines it was with precision and force; by the end of the movie his presence cast a shadow over every character, every line, every scene – even the ones he wasn’t in. Yes, I’m talking about the volcano.

Honestly, if you go see this movie for any other reason than to see 3D pyroclastics then you’re in for some disappointment.

I can’t tell you how bad the acting was because the dialog was so astoundingly bad. I think Carrie-Anne Moss and Jared Harris, both of whom are award winning actors, rolled their eyes at their own lines a few times. Kiefer Sutherland, who plays the bad guy, had cringe worthy lines, even for him. It’s that bad.

Case in point, the actor Jared Harris actually uses the word “bloody” a few times, as in “bloody Romans”. Hint, they didn’t talk like that. The shame is that Romans used lots of colorful metaphors. There’s an entire wikipedia page devoted to “latin profanity”. Translating that to English would have given the dialog some interesting quirks, oh well.

Do yourself a favor and wait to see this movie on DVD. If you’re lucky you’ll forget about it by then and save yourself a little time and money.
