It was the best movie I have seen in a long time. Austin Butler. Did an outstanding job
MUST SEE!!! From a completely different perspective, you’ll have such a better understanding of his musical story.
Very fast pace at the beginning..just like a circus..66 years of being an Elvis fan and there was still lots to learn and discuss .yes not all the facts are correct but it’s a bio pic and not biography.seen it twice and still need more.. Amazing job done by all.
I have been an Elvis fan since I was able to talk. One of my first words was Elbis. This movie did not disappoint. Austin Butler transcends into Elvis, and he did a magnificent job! I am watching it again. Great movie!
BRILLIANT….this movie transported me back in time…there were times I thought it was EP himself. Austin Butler had big shoes to fill and fill them, he did. I think Elvis would approve…he thought we would forget him….45 years later, his fans still love him…hope this movie lays to rest all the mistruths and brings in a new generation of fans.
Austin Butler did an AWESOME performance as Elvis! I suspect even Elvis himself would be proud!!
If the story is all true just wish Elvis father would have did more to protect Elvis
The acting, the way the director cut the movie, flashbacks, etc. Great acting, yes, 5 stars!
Great movie; great performances; great music!! Will certainly see it again! Loved it!!!
This movie was sooo good. Austin Butler and Tom Hanks should win at the Oscars.
Best picture of the year. Oscar winner and the truth behind it all. MUST SEE!
Would have liked to seen more in his younger years, but then again it was already pretty long-went by fast! Maybe the 4 hour version will have more on his youth and maybe less songs cut short. One movie can never do the Elvis story justice, but this one was really done well. What I didn't like was the sound volume-I could barely hear the words and neither could my date. Hopefully it was just the one theater I was in. Have to see it again, but in a different theater with better sound for sure.
Well I must say I have always wondered about the soul in Elvis swagger. I love the movie absolutely brilliant. I have a new outlook and Respect about the man and his music.
Exciting and the music was great never a dull moment the movie rocked It was very entertaining gotta go see it again
Flashy, empty whitewash. This is mediocre at best.
ELVIS IS BACK IN THE BUILDING! FANTASTIC FILM LOT'S OF HIS MUSIC TRUE STORY AND OSCAR PERFORMANCE.
Maybe I sat too close in the theater or had enhanced concentration because I lacked a bucket of popcorn…but this was the best singer biopic I’ve seen thus far. AUSTIN BUTLER. Who is this thespian?
FANTASTIC movie! The acting was superb, especially Austin Butler - he was nothing short of brilliant!! An Oscar deserving performance for sure! This movie took you through a roller coaster of emotions and truly transported you back to the Elvis days. This one is one I would see again.
Amazing! Austin and Tom….no words! Amazing!!
Austin Butler nailed it!! Elvis would be proud & the movie brilliantly showed the Kings love for his fans which is why we loved him so
An honest portrayal of an amazing person and life.
Austin Butler did a awesome job of acting as Elvis and great makeup job. Loved it. :)
Austin Butler or Tom Hanks, or maybe both of them, should get an Academy nomination for their amazing performances. Butler became Elvis in this movie, his voice, awesome singing, and those unforgettable moves he did while performing were spot on. I also liked that Elvis's family all approved of this movie and the realistic acting by Tom Hanks and Austin Butler. You'll want to see this movie on the big screen.
Movie only paints Elvis as a product of blues music. But Growing up in the 30s & 40s he also listened to BigBand (Glen Miller); and the singing cowboys of the cinema (Roy Rogers & Gene Autry), as well as. Country Music (Hank Snow & Hank Williams), He was a big Bluegrass fan ((Flatt & Scruggs, Bill Monroe). Check out Foggy Mountain Breakdown Finally his biggest influences were pop ballad crooners like Dean Martin & Bing Crosby). Listen to Deans sing Memories are Made of These American popular music morphed from these other genres.
We will be seeing more of Austin, he did a great job as Elvis. How can someone dislike Tom Hanks? Remember it's not Tom, it's a rotten character he's playing. Elvis was and is the King of Rock & Roll.
I feel so sad that evil illegal alien manager stole half of all Elvis made!!! Unbelievable!!!!! To think his estate could not get the money from that bastard in court due to him claiming he had NO NAME OR COUNTRY IS JUST UNSPEAKABLE!!!!! TOTALLY UNSPEAKABLE!!! 🤬
Great performances by Austin Butler and Tom Hanks. I would love to see it again. I saw Elvis twice in person. Austin had his moves and mannerisms down pat. Good looking too.
So nice to see a film of this caliber for a change! All entertainment, zero agenda. And Austin Butler is a force in this thing! Go see it on the big screen while you can.
Austin Butler & Tom Hanks were wonderful. Loved the movie. My era. They protrayed Elvis like he was.
Austin Butler is absolutely the best actor to ever portray Elvis. He had big shoes to feel and certainly did so. He brought Elvis’ style and inner self to life. I saw it twice and will watch it again. I will definitely buy it on dvd. Tom Hanks was incredible too as Tom Parker. Austin should definitely receive an Oscar for his acting. Best actor Austin Butler and Tom Hanks best supporting actor.
One of the best movies I've seen in years! I never wanted it to end. Austin Butler is divinely inspired in this role. He has us believing that we're really seeing into the soul of Elvis - really knowing him in a way we couldn't know him when he was alive because there was so much hidden away. Austin Butler show us the innocence of a young impressionable man who became ruthlessly exploited because he was a dreamer who grew up poor. You will hate Tom Hanks for who & what he represents in this role. You will hate what he does to Elvis. This movie is worth every dollar you pay to see it. Use your scene points & see it twice! T
great movie. austin butler was fantastic
As close to the TRUTH as you could get
The movie was great as well as the music. Austin Butler was excellent and Tom Hanks was also. If I had any criticism it would be that there was a little too much of the Colonel making the movie a bit too long. Loved seeing Elvis at the end!
I really enjoyed the movie! Austin Butler did a terrific job! He had all the right moves and looked the part! I did not have high expectations and I was very surprised and pleased with the film. I really liked the footage at the end with Elvis, sad as it was. Great job!
Loved this movie... Don't listen to the critics... Austin Butler's performance was incredible! Tears at the end of this movie. Thanks for bringing Elvis back to life... for a little while anyway.
Absolutely loved this movie. Austin Butler, as Elvis, is phenomenal ! He should be nominated for Best Actor for his outstanding performance. They kept it factional which is probably why Elvis’s family was so happy about it. I will see it again as it was fast moving and I may have missed important dialogue/facts. Don’t miss this showing on a big screen !
Elvis served in the Army with honor, entertain ing troops. Elvis freely gave many cars, lots of money and gifts to perfect strangers. He would not have let them portray his mom and dad as such. Elvis promoted love and fun. People were happy to hear his music and see his movies. We memorized his lyrics, and bought his records. The movie plays a few songs, but the "trailer" was about all that was worth watching. The rest of what is said here was omitted. We were proud of his military service and benevolent spirit. We do not wish to be reminded of the drugs and affairs. A con job and failed attempt at remembering Elvis the right way.
outstanding movie. Austin Butler has one an oscar worthy performance.
I really hope people will go see this film and see Elvis from a different perspective. As a true Elvis fan, I left impressed!!
As a true Elvis fan I loved it because young people will get to see the true Elvis and his influence on culture, and music. I wish they could have included more about his humor, and his generosity. But over all having lived the Elvis years I thought it was great.
Austin Butler was great!
Outstanding performances, incredible costumes, everything you want for an incredible movie experience you won’t soon forget!
Absolutely one of the best movies I've seen, and I see a lot of them! Extraordinary acting, loved it from start to finish!
Austin Butlers portrayal of Elvis was spot on in every way, voice, performances, gestures . he deserves an Oscar as does Tom Hanks. Some of the timeline and information was off but the story was told of what a great music genius and performer he was. There will never be another.
Having been a long time Elvis fan, I was looking forward to this movie but had low expectations. It was amazing! Great acting, story, etc. it really showed Elvis the person, instead of just an entertainer. It’s long - over 2.5 hours, but worth every second.
awesome movie the actors all did their best and deserve trophys for it, very well made ooooh a must see...I will definitely go watch it again and again....dont miss
