A total farce to Elvis fans everywhere!!!
5 May 2000 | by MovieMarauderSee all my reviews

I haven't seen this film since 1993 when I was only nine years old, but I still remember every bit how much of a flagrant travesty it was to The King, and to the story of his life. This movie has the audacity to suggest that Elvis Presley's drug problem was already beginning to develop in the early 1960's, when everyone who knows about Elvis also knows that he had no REASON to do his perscription sleeping and awakening "upper and downer" drugs at that time, because he was never on tour and the only thing occupying his career was his movie-making period. In fact, from 1961 to 1968, he had no public appearances at all, except for his films. Also, the movie portrays Elvis in 1973 as already beginning to gain some serious weight, when in fact, no significant change could even be perceived on Elvis' body until late 1975, when he was becoming more and more frequently hospitalized for digestive disorders. And any true Elvis fan would be angry at the way the film portrays Elvis, as a slothful, short-tempered, childish prima dona. Take it from me, folks. If you want to see a good Elvis documentary, wait for TNT to air Elvis: The Early Years, a very thorough and accurate peice focusing mainly on Elvis' childhood all the way up through 1955, when his noteriety was about to reach its peak.
