Jon Snow and Babydoll deserved better than Paul WS Anderson

Excerpt: Not sure how the same hack that made the Resident Evil movies got to make a movie about Pompeii, are there really so few talented directors in Hollywood that this is who has to be settled for now? This movie, aside from a couple decent visual effects near the end and Emily Browning looking cute as ever, was pretty much a big waste of time. Also Kiefer Sutherland was horribly miscast, the dialogue was crap, the storyline was as basic as it gets.
Excerpt: Bad action, bad actors, bad story, bad photography. Video with quality of a DVD. These can´t be a Blu-ray !!! But it is !!! I don´t think that here in Brasil they are producing pirates Blu-rays ! I lost my time renting these movie. Obs: Here in Brasil the movie was presented in 1.85:1. Is these sufficient to ruin the video ??? Someone can tell me?
Summary: Kit Harrington from Game of Thrones delivers a performance worthy of the big screen. It was always going to be difficult to stick with history and at the same time keep the audience happy, I think the director has achieved this. Combining action sequences worthy of a Gladiator sequel and with a hint of romance to equalise the revenge stakes that grow between Sutherland's character of the Roman Legion and Harringtons Celt.
Summary: Nej! Oh nej..... jösses vilken kalkon. En hjälte med hockey-frilla som kämpar på trots att Vesuvio brakar igång med ett utbrott. Var femte minut får stackars Vesuvio vara med med lite mulller och skådespelarna tittar sig bekymrat omkring för att sedan återuppta diverse svärdviftande. Titeln inbjuder ju till något intressant; Pompeji och dess historia. Men det får vi inte se mycket av.
