really bad portrayal
5 November 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I could not believe how bad this movie was, first- the guy who played Elvis looked and sounded nothing like him, second- why wasn't his weight gain preceding his death portrayed- when they showed his death in 1977 he was the same size as when the movie begins 1969. third- why is Elvis only referred to as "Boss", could they not get permission by EPE? fourth- why have the names of his entourage been changed, red and sonny west are referred to as Jeff and Frank and who I presume to be Joe Esposito is referred to as Ronnie. Don't waste your time on this piece of trash. Elvis would be ashamed that his one time stepbrother would do such a poor job portraying him. 0/10.
