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)
