Critic Reviews for Love Me Tender
Without The King, Love Me Tender is a decent horse opera that has more stand-and-talk moments than shoot-'em-ups....But Elvis really does add interest.
one of Elvis' most compelling works, despite a forced, artificial ending.
Elvis' debut in movies, and not a bad production. Set in Civil War with nice title song.
...in the long run of things, his performance transcends the material.
Audience Reviews for Love Me Tender
I don't know why anybody thought "1865... hmm.. Oh I know, Elvis" but they did and that became Love Me Tender- Elvis' first film. And not a great one, mostly because Elvis is so out of place and bizarre... also kind of a bad guy. The music is insanely out of place, Elvis is overacting and the story is some kind of weird "the South was defeated but we still have morals dangnabit" sort of plot. I mean, it's watchable but mostly not worth it.
going in with low expectations definitely improved my enjoyment of this movie--c'mon, it's Elvis, right? the story's actually a pretty compelling western--solid characters, solid conflict....overall very watchable. for a first-timer, Elvis didn't do a half-bad job. was he great? heck no. could this have been a higher-quality movie if somebody else played Clint? probably. was his singing and dancing unnecessary and a tad anachronistic? you bet. all in all, though, the King's presence just adds a bit of novelty to an already entertaining movie.
This is Elvis' first movie, so if you're a fan you wont want to miss it. I saw it a long time ago, so I don't remember it very well, but I do remember liking it. I'll have to see it again.
