Movie Info

This made-for-TV movie depicts the life of Elvis Presley. Beginning with his poverty-level beginnings and climbing through the halls of superstardom, Kurt Russell's portrayal of the "King" proved him quite capable of emulating the mannerisms, speech patterns and performance of one of American's most recognized and internationally acclaimed superstars.

[John] Carpenter... puts the dramatic focus on the relationships and tricky social dynamic with the male friends who became Elvis support group and entourage.

Full Review… | March 25, 2010

A performance de Russell é impecável; é como se víssemos o próprio Elvis. Porém, o fraco roteiro se limita a retratar momentos da vida deste, sem procurar conhecê-lo melhor.

Audience Reviews for Elvis


John Carpenter and Kurt Russell's first team-up is this thumbnail overview biopic to Tupelo's baritone bomber and his ever-so-fraught-with-rumor behind-the-scenes relationships: his Ma, his manager, his monkeys, and his wife. Though Russell's King is disconcertingly spot-on still the piece plays exactly how it was intended to: like a TV movie.
