THIS MOVIE WAS OUTSTANDING!!! THE ELVIS ACTOR WAS BEYOND EXCEPTIONAL!!!! TOM HANKS NOT SO MUCH BUT ACTING WAS GOOD. I WILL WATCH IT OVER & OVER!!!! BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS!!!!
Man, I waited to see this on streaming and now there's going to be a release on physical media?! Not fair!!!
A rages to riches true story that will make you cry. See the movie with someone you love
I'm 74 years old and I came out of this movie feeling young. Austin Butler's singing ability and the moves to go along with it did something to me. He is a genius in this movie. He has revived Elvis and I am so grateful. Great Job!
Love this movie,Austin Butler is defitinley Oscar worthy,(whole movie is)..Saw 7 times & ordered DVD..Elvis left his mark on the world & never will be forgotten!Just think he thought nobody would remember him!!Ha was he ever wrong!!Hope he is looking down & singing If I Can Dream.Love you Elvis??
Emmy award for this great movie
Like some of the music-disliked it was partly narrated and jumped around.
An outstanding performance by this gorgeous guy who actually looks like Elvis. The actual story of how this phenomenal talented artist became a legend. I absolutely loved it.
I've seen it three times, and want to see it again. Austin Butler disappears into the role! I'd like to see it in IMAX.
I really enjoyed this movie. I did not know that Tom Parker treated Elvis's mom and dad so mean. I didn't know Elvis's mom drank either. The whole movie was wonderful.
I've seen it 10 times. I'm going to c it again as long as it's at the theater !!! Austin Butler and Tom Hanks THE WHOLE CREW WAS GREAT !!
I saw Elvis 6 times I can’t wait to buy it!!! SO well done! Austin Butler deserves an Oscar so does the director!! Thank u for giving us such a wonderful movie. Elvis was a gift to us now I know for sure he loved us too. I can’t wait until the Oscars! Girl if u want to hear more of his songs buy the cds. His music will never grow old. No way the director could have played more of his songs. Stay for the credits. Each time I saw this movie I was drawn into it more than before. The casting was so perfectly done. I will always love Elvis now more than ever
Austin Butler was phenomenal as Elvis; I couldn't believe that he actually sang many of the songs also. He looked so much like Elvis; it's hard to believe he could sound like him, too. The energy of the performances takes you right back to Elvis. It's hard to stay in your seat! If you lived through his career, you will love it and it's a great introduction to why he was such a powerful performer if you haven't seen Elvis before. Tom Hanks was also excellent. Go see it! I would definitely go again if it was showing near me
I loved how Austin dedicated 2 years of his life studying Elvis and reading every book about Elvis. I believe the spirit of Elvis filled Austin giving us such a magnificent, Heartfelt performance! He was beyond AWESOME. Academy Award winning performance for sure.
Exhilarating and heartbreaking. No one will put in a performance as profound as Butler did as Elvis this year. This wasn’t a caricature or an impersonation. He completely inhabits the role. Details and facts are melded and played around with to create an emotional truth that gets to the essence of Elvis the performer and person. You won’t walk away with exact historical recollection, but you will feel like you got to know who Elvis was and what inspired him. The filmmaking is a spectacular accomplishment of filmmaking with vibrant and hypnotic visuals, mesmerizing music and a master talent of editing and cinematography prowess mixing mediums and styles and aesthetics. It’s akin to the editing magic of JFK but filtered through a diamond studded fairytale of good and evil, artist and con artist, talent and deception. The ending is bittersweet as we recognize a tragic ending but also enduring influence.
Austin Butler is absolutely amazing in this movie! I was never an Elvis fan but now I’m an Elvis fan and an Austin Butler fan! Oscar worthy performance!!
I loved the back story and the history of Elvis' rise and his career. I wanted more of my favorite songs like In the Ghetto, Kentucky Rain. etc. I wish it would have been more in depth towards the end of the film.
I have not seen another impersonator do Elvis anywhere close to the job Austin Butler did in this movie. From the voice to mannerisms Uncanny! Laughed cried got angry. Good movie!
Loved this movie, may see it again. Austin played a wonderful Elvis.
Loved it. Showed Parker for greedy, manipulative person he was. Also, Butler really pulled it off as Elvis.
Austin Butler is a god!!
Austin Butler was outstanding in his role as Elvis & deserves the Oscar !! Elvis would be proud !! Tom Hanks was excellent in his role as Colonel Parker.
Total Elvis fan from the 50's
Loved this movie! It was so well done.
it was tasttefully done and it was a new view of Elvis
This movie was so wonderfully done, I can't wait to go back and see it again in the theater. It was a movie of his life and it was tastefully done. Austin was excellent, absolutely terrific, as Elvis. Job well done. This will forever be a favorite movie of mine, I can tell, it has brought Elvis back. The random one star reviews are crazy, considering Priscilla and family love it and how well Austin portrayed Elvis. Austin better get an Oscar!
I like this movie 100%. A "must see" movie to Elvis fans. Austin Butler's performance is incredibly and amazingly brilliant , "second-to-none". He is more an an Oscar Star ! I simply couldn't help watching this movie four times, each time gave me a new discovery and additional pleasure .
Too much focus on Colonel Parker whose voice I found to be irritating however Austin Butler is amazing, just amazing. He is most likely the only person in the world who can impersonate Elvis as he did. Just beautiful
The acting was spectacular.
This was such a well done portrayal of the King and his career.
Is this meant to be a parody...?
Great movie, very educating for the entertainment industry. A must see movie. Will be buy the dvd
Great film about the greatest entertainer ever and deserves several Oscars
It’s a great movie. It should get lots of awards. I’ve read some of the bad comments. One person said, Austin Butler didn’t look like Elvis—they need an appointment with Ocala Eye😃. Also, Tom Hanks did a great acting Colonel Tom Parker. It’s definitely an entertaining movie for us normal people😃
It’s a great movie. It should get lots of awards.
The story of Elvis...can't believe there are negative people only looking for the bad stuff. He was a human being, and he said in a press conference he was an image and it is difficult to live up to an image. A very important man once said, Let him who is without sin cast the first stone. Well, I lived through those times; Elvis was awesome and so is the movie.
Outstanding, Oscar worthy performances by Butler and Hanks. So much more detail about Elvis' life and trials. Makes me love him much more than I did as a teenager. I must see it again.
Good performance by Butler, Hanks was ok as Parker. I found the story a little bit too concentrated on colonel Parker, would like to have seen more of Elvis’ personal life as ugly as it may have been (falling in love with a 14 year old, his drug addiction) That said, it’s definitely worth the watch
I loved the entire movie it truly was great acting & well put together .Missed the showing in Duncan last week but saw it in Nanaimo .Going to see it again in Duncan now & will also buy a DVD when available. Elvis will never ever die or be forgotten. He & his legacy shall live on forever & ever Amen .Thank you Yvonne..
Some things were not totally true, but it's a very good movie in memory of Elvis!
