  • Why 'Pompeii' Doesn't Blow

    History suggests that it took about six hours for Mt. Vesuvius to bury Pompeii in a thick coat of lava and ash. It took most critics even less time to bury "Pompeii" the movie in volcanic invective, resulting in a woeful 28% "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an only slightly more encouraging 41 on Metacritic. Meanwhile, the vox populi has spoken, leading to a dismal $10 million opening weekend (against a reported $100 million budget). But look closer and, like those flailing limbs jutting out from the real Pompeii's petrified in-situ corpses, a few persuasive dissenters can be heard amid the dismissive din. They douse the violent inferno with enthusiastic praise for the movie's action sequences, for its use of 3D, and above all for its director, Paul W.S. Anderson. And they are not wrong to do so.
