Celtic slave Milo (Kit Harington, aka Jon Snow from Game of Thrones) is shipped to Pompeii to fight in the arena. En route his path crosses that of the governor’s daughter, Cassia (Emily Browning), and they’re soon hot for each other, the earth moves etc etc, as you’d expect with a volcano up the road.
Unfortunately Cassia’s dad betroths her to beastly Roman senator Corvus, the man Milo saw slaughter his family. What are the odds?
Vesuvius erupts while Milo is busy gladiating, and things get pretty predictable from there. 6/10
