Interesting storyline but not quite there,
12 October 2007 | by JahReidSee all my reviews

The life of the great Elvis Presley is fascinating and worth a look. The story is alright but the acting falls short. Elvis is not believable and his younger brother's "narrative voice" doesn't help the cause any. The film is probably only suited for fans of The King, and even then don't expect a lot. It's not even clear the true intent of the film. There is no interesting dialog in any scene involving The King. The director never creates any insight into the character, really falling short on what this entire production should have been based on. The more I write the more I realize what a waste of time that 90 minutes was.
