Joey, do you like movies about gladiators? Hollywood is still hoping that gladiators and other ancient warriors are hot this year (see for example: The Legend of Hercules, 300: The Rise of an Empire). Here's the latest attempt to revive the sword-and-sandal genre. Paul W.S. Anderson (Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil, AVP: Alien vs. Predator) directs this special effects extravaganza about a slave-turned-gladiator (Kit Harington from "Game Of Thrones") trying to escape the titular city with his rich ladylove before Vesuvius goes boom. You'll probably end up rooting for the volcano. 102 minutes PG-13.
