In 79AD a gladiator slave (Kit Harington) and a nobleman’s daughter (Emily Browning) kindle an unlikely passion, hindered by social station, a corrupt Roman senator (Kiefer Sutherland) and an exploding mountain (Vesuvius).
Over-reaching and unintentionally amusing, this is straight-to-video quality inexplicably delivered at blockbuster scale. A thunderous volca-NO.
