The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM - TB

Abs ahoy. Har­ring­ton, bas­tard Jon Snow from Game of Thrones, does not fall far from his tree in An­der­son’s char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally un­sub­tle at­tempt to con­struct a story around the last days of Pom­peii. Us­ing his sad face to good ef­fect, Kit plays a Celt named, of all things, Milo. Trans­ported to the Ro­man city as a slave, Milo falls in im­prob­a­ble love with Emily Brown­ing’s anachro­nis­ti­cally egal­i­tar­ian no­ble totty. Erupt al­ready, Ve­su­vius. 12A cert, gen re­lease, 104 min
