Talk about a horrible way to die.
I was lucky to catch this movie in theaters and yes, it looked very impressive. For the historical fan, Pompeii was the story about what happened when Mount Etna blew its stack several hundred years ago and killed off scores of the population of Pompeii. The story is also about one man’s quest to keep his girlfriend safe, even when the chaos is everywhere.
But I wasn’t exactly “blown away” by the movie. Not until I rewatch this one with my friends.
Now,, I’m banking on Divergent.
