Game of Thrones‘ Kit Harington stars in the film as Milo, a stave-turned-gladiator who’s trying to save his true love Cassia (Emily Browning, Sucker Punch) from being forced to marry a corrupt Roman Senator … all while Mount Vesuvius erupts, pouring lava and ash over the city.
Critics did not care for Pompeii much, giving it only 24% approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes. Moviegoers liked it only minimally better with 46%. The reviews could be why the movie came and went from theaters, grossing only $23 million.
