Pleasantly Surprised
9 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

I Watched Part 1 of Elvis last night, and was BLOWN away. Jonathan Rhys Meyers did an EXCELLENT job portraying The King. Everything down to his lip curl and southern drawl was displayed perfectly. Surprisingly, because JRM is Irish-born and didn't know much about Elvis in the first place.

The appearance is what got me at first. Sometimes I would look up at the TV screen and actually believe that Elvis himself was grinning back at me. They have really chosen a great actor to play him this time. Rhys Meyers' face, smile, hair, voice and demeanor all SCREAM OUT Elvis to me.

Both my mom and I were googly eyed during most of the 2 hours, and we were begging for more by the time 11 p.m. rolled around. I give this mini-series BOTH OF MY THUMBS UP and I can't wait, (and have no doubt) that Part 2 will be as intriguing as the first.
