The last days of Ercolano
Another "adaptation" of Bulwer Lytton's famous novel,even if it takes place in Ercolano.Like Pompei,Ercolano was near the Vesuvius ,and the eruption really occurred in 79 AD .But when you visit Pompei today,the guides tell you it's impossible that survivors were able to escape,particularly by boats.

Like Mario Bonnard's "last days of Pompei" (1959) which featured Steve Reeves ,this work is completely incoherent:the plot is couldn't- care- less and the actors ' performances are minimal to say the least:a mixture of gladiators,political corruption,and the rise of Christianity with all the clichés you can think of,none of the story makes any sense.I would go as far as to write it's sometimes hard to catch up with the cock-and-bull story.

Of course ,when the "goods" are to be crucified (why ,anyway, do they crucify the hero who is a Roman citizen??),God punishes the villains as He makes the volcano erupt.As a result ,losses percentages:good guys:0% villains :100%.Anno Domini indeed.
