Critic Reviews for This Is Elvis

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (1)

  • Unlike previous documentaries, this one focuses on the star's life more than his music and gives the best hints yet of why Presley's skyrocket ride to stardom led him to self-destruct.

  • The movie's lesson is brutal, sad, and inescapable: Elvis Presley was a man who gave joy to a great many people but felt very little of his own, because he became addicted and stayed addicted until the day it killed him.

    October 23, 2004 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The biggest issue with This Is Elvis is that it reduces the life of a singer who has become a myth to four biographical facts. [Full Review in Spanish]

    August 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Although the film resembles a child's drawing of a life, it is enlivened by the use of documentary material which, if it does nothing else, at least recreates that era When 'rock-and-roll' was seen as the harbinger of things to come.

    March 29, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The 1981 documentary begins with awkward recreations of Elvis' early life but soon turns into an excellent introductory portrait of the country boy turned rock and roll phenomenon...

    August 14, 2007 | Full Review…
  • Fine documentary/showcase of the King.
