Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: This big-budget sword-and-sandal adventure lacks the energy and storytelling heft to amount to more than a guilty pleasure.

Common Sense Says
Historical epic is light on plot, heavy on carnage.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Pompeii is a gladiator tale set in the last days of the doomed Roman city, and is very heavy on combat and carnage. Gladiators fight to the death, soldiers massacre villagers, prisoners batter each other over petty slights, and numerous scenes end with piles of corpses in the background. There's hardly any swearing, sex, or drinking to interrupt the fight scenes, just lots and lots of death.
