Rigo + Elvis = El Gran Triunfo
9 April 2005 | by (houston, texas) – See all my reviews

This movie was made in Mexico at the height of Rigomania, while its not a great film it is filled with some terrific music. It was basically a movie built around a soundtrack. It parallels Rigo's life with him hitting the big time. Rigo always an admirer of Elvis Presley knew that making movies was good career move, at least financially. It is good to see him as still a young man and his music at peak form. The movie is fun, mind-candy. Great scenes of him in concert accentuate it. The dialogue is almost a word for word description of Rigo Tovar's success up to that time. A good film to see considering his recent passing this year.
