    Theres too much going on in this version, it keeps switching scenes and Baz is trying to be too creative with the effects and angles and it spoils the story and movie

    Way to go Hollywood, you did it again!! Your portrait of Elvis in this film is GARBAGE!! Elvis NEVER disrespected his parents, Elvis NEVER disrespected his fans and Elvis NEVER disrespected Col Tom Parker! Elvis was always in control of his emotions; especially in public! Elvis didn't go into the Army because of a choice of going to jail or going into the military. He served his country PROUDLY and was VERY patriotic. You destroyed EVERYTHING good about Elvis Presely!!! No wonder why Hollywood is dead!!! You will not destroy the memory of him to me!! There are too many people alive today who know who the real Elvis Presley was!! A huge thumbs down from me!! Hollywood sucks!!!

    Basically all this movie said was Elvis got everything he knew from African Americans, even though he took his style from all Genres and mixed it together. 2/5 stars.

    I wasn't planning on watching it, only did because my boyfriend wanted it. And I am so glad that he did. Loved every second of it. Maybe the best movie I've seen this year. Simply briliant.
