Bad, very bad

APOCALYPSE POMPEII is your usual trashy disaster movie that comes courtesy of Asylum, who released it as a rip-off of the not-much-better POMPEII. This one sees former HIGHLANDER Adrian Paul escorting his family around the ruins of Pompeii when Vesuvius erupts again, plunging them all into danger. The whole story sees various characters assailed by the usual heat surges, ash clouds, and lava, and it plays out in a shlocky and cheap-looking way with a maximum of cheesy CGI effects. The old-timer of the cast is none other than John Rhys-Davies, playing the same military role as he one he had in 100 DEGREES BELOW ZERO, and it says something that even his presence doesn't raise a smile.

Not the Asylum's Worst

Despite negative press, the film isn't a total disaster. This direct-to-video disaster film was released by the notoriously cheesy independent film group The Asylum on home video on February 18, 2014. The unrated film follows a Special Ops Commando on a trip in Pompeii who attempts to rescue his wife, his daughter, and a group of other people after the infamous Mount Vesuvius erupts once more, trapping them inside the ruins of Pompeii. The film stars Adrian Paul, Jhey Castles, and Georgina Beedle as the aforementioned family, who attempt to reunite with one another in the midst of all of the chaos. Also starring is John Rhys-Davies reprising his role from previous Asylum picture 100 Degrees Below Zero as Colonel Dillard, and, frankly, he's the best performer here by a long shot. The rest of the struggling group are rounded out by Dylan Vox, and Dan Cade among others. The 88-minute long film is stretched out just enough to reach a feature-length running time, making it feel like an episode of MacGyver, only with cheesy effects as a result. Now, I really don't have a lot to say about the movie. It's your typical movie by The Asylum with bad effects, alright acting, and stretched out pacing. But then again, this is why we watch these films: for ironic enjoyment. Honestly though, the film isn't as bad as some of The Asylum's disaster films such as Airplane vs. Volcano. Instead, it's just your typical, comfortably paced low-budget movie, acting well in a "watching a movie while you fall asleep" situation. Despite the fact that the movie is one of The Asylum's better films, it's still exactly what you expect: A short direct-to-video film with cheesy effects. But the movie is still not all bad. I thought the film was just Meh...

Perfectly okay for a Sunday afternoon

Nothing wrong with this film, okay some of it doesn't make any sense, for example why are they the only ones in pompeii, when I can imagine if it lousy with tourists the whole time, and why is the guy out of indiana Jones in charge of an Italian army helicopter. For those who dis this film remember what channel it's on, how cheap it probably was and how much worse most of it's ilk are. it moves quickly, has a pretty girl in it and a good number of explosions. the effects are okay and it sort of makes sense. It's a cheap and cheerful disaster movie, if that's the sort of thing you like (and I do), then cool, watch it, otherwise don't
