Protecting the King Reviews
The acting is forced; the narrative is forced and choppy. Elvis doesn't exactly [i]look[/i] like Elvis in this one. The movie is so bad that it's comical.
One scene that make this movie worth stomaching is when David's young wife is duped into giving him a ride to the airport so he can 'just say goodbye to' Elvis before he goes on tour. After she drops him off, only to see him kiss some groupie and jump into the jet to go on tour, she [i]doesn't get mad[/i].
There were no Elvis songs.
But, it was better than 'Vanilla Sky".
you should rent it...no you should BUY it...
This film isn't all about Elvis actually. It's the tale of his stepbrother David Stanley who at the mere age of sixteen joined Presley on the road, later serving as his personal bodyguard. It's about the harsh realities of life on the road and how it eventually took it's toll on both of them.
Never expected anything from this, not being a fan of Elvis and all but this turned out to be quite a good film with a good cast and it's pretty well acted, specially Matt Barr, who played the lead role as David.
