Movie Reviews

‘Elvis’ is a wild ride clearly made with a big hunk o’ love for its subject, and that zeal for capturing Presley’s humanity, both by its director and its star, outweighs the film’s excesses.

Jim Vejvoda: IGN

A fizzy, delirious, impishly energized, compulsively watchable 2-hour-and-39-minute fever dream.

Owen Gleiberman: Variety

If the writing too seldom measures up to the astonishing visual impact, the affinity the director feels for his showman subject is both contagious and exhausting.
