This was a very eye opening to his life and to the struggles he faced while he lived. Was great to watch and sad when you think. The man loved to sing and loved his family so much.
Really shallow. Insultingly simplistic. This is more interested in myth-making than truth, and there's far too much myth about Elvis already. And Elvis was NOT such a great human being. The movie glosses over how Elvis groomed his future wife Priscilla and had sex with her when she was only fourteen years old; and his infamous union with Richard Nixon. Elvis asked Nixon to target The Beatles, calling them "Anti-American." It's funny how Presley was even more paranoid than Nixon! Elvis then asked Nixon for a DEA badge and pledged his support for Nixon's war on drugs, even though Elvis was a pill popping drug fiend himself! And it all added up to an ignominious death on the toilet. Perhaps someone should make a film about the parallels in the lives of Elvis and Lupe Velez.
Awesome movie I saw it last night and it was great a little over hyped but still one hell of a show
This movie was amazing. Auston Butler was AWESOME. I recommend going to see the movie.
Loved Elvis! Saw him perform twice. Great human being. The movie was outstanding and very true to his life. Austin Butler did a great job as Elvis. Movie was wonderful and very well done. Elvis would be proud of it.
It was incredibly entertaining which is the number one goal of a movie. Elvis’ legacy will hopefully continue to shine He was the greatest entertainer of the 20th century with a fabulous singing voice and spectacular charisma. This movie is amazing !!!!
This movie is brilliant. It is great entertainment. We are going again next week. The theater was state of the art. Austin Butler was superb: as were the supporting cast. Applaud the professionalism and work ethic of this high end biographical movie.
I really appreciated how tasteful it was done, I wasn't sure how I was going to like Austin Butler or anyone else playing Elvis, but he did a great job!!! If you are an Elvis fan...you must see this movie, and if you are not, you still should see it, you might appreciate what Elvis did for Rock and Roll!!!!!
Having loved Elvis and seeing him in concert several times, must say Austin Butler did an amazing job as Elvis, to the point that I forgot he wasn't! Tom Hanks as Colonel Parker was excellent! This movie movie was very emotional for me at times, as I lived it! Going to see it again ! My Grandson took me along with other family members, so three generations!
Well structured and cast!
This movie is a big Miss. It is from Parker's point of view and to me, the movie's name of Elvis, is just another abuse inflicted by influence of Parker. First Tom Hanks movie that makes me cringe and not in a good way. Disjointed. The trailer has more substance and emotional impact than the actual movie. Waste of money.
it was pretty interesting take on the story of Elvis and his life and is crook of a manager the film was a little too emotional in some scenes other than that it was a great film
Can't wait to see it later today. Lisa Presley said it really captured her father's essence. The actor who plays Elvis is awesome and a very intelligent and articulate man (from an interview I watched). The singing is that is the actor which is spot on for Elvis and not dubbed in.
HE'S STILL THE KING
I have not seen it yet. I wish they had more stars for the ratings, because I would give the movie the highest amount of stars!
I cant wait to see this if anything like the Greatness of Elvis, his music and his Legacy that shall forever live on and be respected as the greatest singer entertainer of all time and a Biopic of his life that we sadly lost him too soon but lives on in our hearts forever like no other human being or any Star Ever! The critics and stupid Rotten Tomatoes crap will eat their shorts when the awards go out Peoples Choice, Academy or whatever... Dont know why Hanks chose to do a weird accent bu will take as his version of the infamous and diabolical manager... The so called " Colonel " But being about Elvis and the trailer I can hardly wait to see, especially with family endorsements from the Presley ladies... Wish Benjamin was here to see he might have recovered and lived a happy life... Sad when the good die so young. May he And Elvis Rest in Peace and be, respectfully loved and remembered forever...
Haven't seen the movie but I'm giving it a five just because I'm so happy someone is still remembering Elvis!! I read the other reviews and the last one said they wouldn't go see it cause of Parker's accent dumb not to see a movie about Elvis cause of that just saying!!
THE BEST MOVIE EVER MADE ABOUT ELVIS...THE MAN. IT'S GOING TO BE A HUGE HIT!
Watched all the movie trailers, and KNOW that they FINALLY made a movie in good taste, that really respects Elvis Presley, the man! Baz is a genius to say the least. Austin and Tom from all the clips I have seen so far,,has done an exceptional job.
Looking forward to this .
I hate Tom Hank's accent in the movie, I won't see it because of his accent.
