Audience Reviews for Elvis Gratton: Le king des kings

Pierre Falardeau's Elvis Gratton is a staple of Quebec films. The character itself is very popular in the province of Quebec, and the film has been THE film to watch from Quebec cinema, but that is just an opinion on many who enjoy him. However, the fact is, there several far better, more refined comedies from Quebec. This film serves for one purpose only, and it's to preach the Quebec Sovereignty using the character of Bob "Elvis" Gratton to prove his point. The jokes are at times funny, but they quickly run out of steam. The acting is nothing very good either, and it's one of those movies that doesn't stand out because it's a poorly acted and directed film that fails to make its mark. I really wanted to enjoy this, but Elvis Gratton is one of those films that just fails to really grab your attention and it uses the same joke over and over again, which in turn just doesn't satisfy. This is a mediocre comedy that could have been better if the jokes would have stood out a lot more, unfortunately, there never is anything going on, on-screen, and most of the time you're bored. Falardeau should have focused more on writing very good jokes, but instead he focused more on his lost cause of Quebec Sovereignty, which in turn makes the film look pathetic and really not worth your time, as well as making the director look like the Quebec Spike Lee due to the fact that he only has one trick up his sleeve to make films. Elvis Gratton is a bland film, and there are better Quebec movies out there for you to watch. Notably Les Boys, Cruising Bar, Bon cop, Bad Cop and of course the works of Denis Villeneuve. This on the other hand is just an empty comedy that is at times humorous, but falls flat due to the lack of great jokes and effective performances.
