Pompeii rating: yellow light

Pompeii yellow light Kit Harington Emily Browning

Instantly forgettable but more than passable as a diversion; solid B-movie cheese that’s like Titanic-lite meets Gladiator-lite.
I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of director Paul W.S. Anderson

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

  • You had me at Titanic-lite.

  • LaSargenta

    Aaaand that’s exactly where I don’t want to be. :-)

    No objection to cinematic cheese; sometimes that’s what I’m in the mood for. I can certainly see myself settling down to watch The Towering Roman Inferno.
