While the premise sounds promising, the movie turns out to be a tedious and unnecessarily violent heist movie that's low on laughs and leaves no cliche unturned.

Lichtenstein grooves on bullets and blood and bedlam, but there's no grace, no drama, no sense of honor to the violence.
Too much of the film is pure filler, visuals manipulated for onanistic purposes.
The picture feels longer than Presley's career and as irrelevant as he was by the end.
Fast-paced but dumb.
It should be banned from theaters on the grounds that anyone unwittingly seeing it is being subjected to cruel and unusual punishment.
The film borrows lavishly from Oliver Stone's oeuvre, only it borrows the wrong things.
Extremely violent Elvis-based robbery for 17+ only.
The Tarantino effect is very much in evidence in this trashy, senseless, and excessively violent actioner about a casino heist that goes uproariously awry.
...an incoherent jumble of images...
Russell and Costner deliver up some of the most amusing portrayals of their careers as casino-robbing Elvis impersonators
It's a shame the movie is ultimately so worthless, because the acting isn't half-bad
Like a needle jumping around on a scratchy old piece of vinyl, the movie skips aimlessly from raunchy comedy to blood-spattered thriller to gooey male-bonding drama without ever finding a groove to settle into.
A big fun heist piece fed on nada but actors' charisma and man, there's plenty here to go around. The writing's a little "ehh" and maybe (just maybe!) there's a little too much of a copycat Tarantino vibe, but past that there's some nice time at the movies action here. Courtney Cox. You know how you hear somebody's famous but can't figure out why? That's how me and Courtney go, until this. She didn't annoy the crap outta me for once, and was even sexy in parts. Wow. But its Costner's film, hands down, no contest.
Kinetic, energized action / heist film, 3000 Miles to Graceland is a far better film that what has been initially said about it. With a great cast of actors, an effective script, this is a film that delivers an entertaining two hours for viewers that want a mindless action picture to watch. The film is not great, but it's much better than what most reviews have said about it, and there is enough going on-screen to make this a worthy film to watch. I quite enjoyed Kurt Russell's performance as well as that OF Kevin Costner's. The way the film goes into the heist elements is very well done, and in turn the thrills mount up afterwards, and it's a satisfying affair for those that enjoy films like these. I found this one to be underrated, and it's a fun film to watch if you're in the right state of mind. However, the film does have a few shortcomings, and it does leave room for improvement, but it's not a bad film by any means. At times the film is darkly humorous, and those elements, don't really work in the story, and it's what brings down the film slightly, but the idea is very good and it's an entertaining heist picture that deserves another chance. The cast do fine work here, and the story is entertaining enough, even if it's not perfect, it's a worthwhile picture to watch if you have nothing else better to watch. 3000 Miles to Graceland is an average film of course could have been better, and you are left wanting more, but overall, it's a pleasant film to watch for genre fans looking for an entertaining genre film to view.
Probably one of the most interesting and quite cool team ups I've seen in a film for some time, Costner, Russell and Slater although we lose Slater early on. Unfortunately the casting also included Arquette and Cox who both seem to star in the same films as if its a contract requirement, thing is both of them are useless, and Ice-T pops up at the end with a really dumb character but luckily he kicks the bucket quickly.
So basically this is Costner being a muttonchopped badass and killing virtually anyone who stands in his way! Reviews and box office performance were poor but personally I don't get why as I believe this is a rip roaring king of action that is miles better than most gun totting action flicks.
Sure its pretty silly but the Elvis impersonators convention robbery set piece at the start is worth the ticket admission alone, bullets fly and police officers get blasted from here to next Sunday whilst Costner struts around in leather pants and Russell's hairs would make Elvis himself proud. Add to this a rocking soundtrack, some decent car chases and some nice camera work and you have a pretty smart film.
Plus side, Arquette dies early, we do see Cox in a thong (sneak peek shot) and Costner makes a better bad guy than good, its just a shame Slater wasn't in longer.
Crime Is King.
Pretty good film! I was very entertained and the story really kept me guessing, excellent script and writer. Kevin Costner really acted very well and nailed his role. Nice supporting cast. Lot's of action and twist and turns, you will enjoy it.
Hardened criminals Thomas J. Murphy and Michael Zane lead a gang of five using an Elvis impersonators convention as cover to violently rob the Riviera Casino. The others get eliminated either during the heist or infighting (allegedly?) over the way to divide the loot and launder it. Zane returns to the desert rat hole 'last Chance' sleazy diner run by divorced Cybil Waingrow, who makes a second income of seducing and robbing men with and for her smart cheeky rascal Jesse. Once she knows about the laundering, Cybil dumps Jesse of Zane so she can try to steal it, but Murphy, who already left a bloody trail including dead cops, recruits a new team, just like the police. Fortunes and betrayal keep shifting while the victims pile up.
