McClatchy-Tribune News Service - Roger Moore
What Anderson delivers this one time is a genuine spectacle, a gladiator movie with a volcano in the middle of it.

Variety - Peter Debruge
While more coherent than much of Anderson’s recent work, the film proves less successful at combining destruction and damsel-in-distress storytelling within the same frame, serving up blurry images of Milo trying to rescue Cassia while the city crumbles around them.

Miami Herald - Rene Rodriguez
The movie is so grand in scale that you can’t help surrender to the spectacle, even if the stuff that’s going on with the people in the film is often close to risible.

The Dissolve - Keith Phipps
Pompeii just feels like an excuse to rain digital terror on screaming extras. There’s much to see here, but little to feel, and even less to remember.

Film.com - Jordan Hoffman
The first sixty minutes of Pompeii are awful, bordering on unwatchable... The final forty-five minutes of the movie however are, by sheer force of will, irrefutably entertaining. At least there’s raining death in the form of fireballs smashing up the place.
