Kurt Russell did well
11 August 1999 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

Kurt Russell played Elvis very well, he didn't over do the voice like those bad vegas impersonators either! This movie had so much depth to it that it doesn't matter if your an Elvis Presley fan or not. Although chances are after seeing it, you will be.
