Another bombastic, action-packed explosion of a film from the director of The Three Musketeers and the Resident Evil series. In ancient Pompeii, nobleman's daughter Cassia (Emily Browning) is intrigued by The Celt (Kit Harington), the latest of a batch of fierce warriors to be enslaved and forced to fight for the amusement of the public. He is also quite taken with her and makes an impression when he helps her with a horse-related problem. However trouble is brewing as powerful, vindictive Senator Corvus (Kiefer Sutherland) wants Cassia for himself. While The Celt prepares himself for a difficult arena battle, the foundations of Pompeii begin to tremble. Nearby Mount Vesuvius begins to erupt, promising a fiery end for all of Pompeii's oblivious citizens.
