|Paul W.S. Anderson|
Pompeii will be set in 79AD and will not only bring us the spectacular eruption of Mount Vesuvius but also the story of a lowly slave who dreams of escaping and marrying the daughter of his master. Trapped on a ship headed for Naples, the slave attempts to return home and rescue both his love and his best friend. Total Film
summarised this one as 2012 with togas. For me though the story sounds engaging and I doubt it will be as disappointing as the aforementioned end-of-the-world film.
In Paul W.S. Anderson the film has a director who has no problem working with big budgets and who can deliver stunning visuals but perhaps lacks the ability to bring us moving drama. Lets hope it has a good mix of both.
Will this one work out or just be another 2012?
