  • I REALLY ENJOYED THIS HISTORICAL FILM

    I didn't get to watch from the beginning of this movie but shortly after it had started. As others say, Basil Rathbone is great in this movie - at first very selfish and commanding, but later on more reflective and humble. I enjoyed his character's developement. The other acting isn't great, but I still really love the story itself - it's a film of spiritual redemption. One man's greed (Marcus) for riches so that he can give everything to his son, and his son not wanting riches, but instead wanting to help the poor and down-trodden. I do enjoy seeing the father's change of thought when he sees that he has inadvertently caused his son to be among those in the Arena who might be killed. And when Mount Vesuvius erupts, his forlorn wandering from the destruction realizing what a fool he's been and that it has all been for nought. He begins helping others to escape to the harbor and his boat, and in this selfish change of heart, he then sees his injured son and is able to ensure his escape on the boat, while he himself risks his life to save others. It is a very good story, and one that I wish I could watch over and over on DVD. Please put this movie on DVD soon.

    Not trite. Dialogue is not terrible. Main issue is with the chronology between @33 AD (Crucifixion) to 79 AD (Vesuvius).

  • Basil's film entirely!

    Basil Rathbone enhanced every film he was in and he absolutely saves this one from a trash heap! This is a very trite film with terrible dialogue. The destruction of Pompeii is very, very good and frightening but that's about it.
