Review by: Russell D’Silva

Making a biopic is always a difficult task, given the delicate line between fact, representing fact with interest and resisting the temptation to distort certain facts to create more interest. The task becomes even more difficult when you make a biopic on a very famous person, struggling to turn it into a biography. And if you’re making a movie on Elvis Presley, all those aforementioned points are multiplied. Thankfully, director Baz Luhrmann not only avoids every single trap, but also makes sure that Elvis is one of the most exciting and fitting biopics one can hope for, certainly two of Austin Butler and Tom Hanks. Aided by scintillating performances.

So, are you excited about what to watch this weekend or what to watch this week and wondering if Vikram is worth your time? scroll down for my full elvis Film Reviews,

what is it about

Elvis traces the journey of the ‘King of Rock and Roll’ from his poor beginnings in an African American neighborhood to his heart-wrenching ascents to the pinnacle of being the most famous person on the planet and the man responsible for both making and breaking him saw. ,

see elvis trailer below:

what’s hot

The best thing about Elvis is how the director baz luhrmann Gives you everything you think you know and love about the legend, plus much more that inspires you to sit down and feel what you know about both his life and music know very little. You revel in each performance, shaking everyone up, while you are completely absorbed in whatever is going on in the background. Of course, none of this would have been possible when Austin Butler made a career-defining, star-making turn, completely metamorphosed into “The King,” and Tom Hanks, which presents another Oscar-winning performance as his Paris manager, Colonel Tom Parker. No prizes for guessing that the production values ​​in the Luhrmann film are top notch as is the editing (Matt Villa and Jonathan Redmond) and camerawork (Mandy Walker).

what is not

While the entire film features Baz Luhrmann’s signature spectacle and style, it’s perfect for any Elvis Presley The biopic, the first part lacks some essence (fortunately corrected in the second part) – the whole episode where conservative and right-wing politicians turn against Elvis and try to shake off his style is detected very quickly . Additionally, his final days also feel rushed and a bit abrupt towards the end (a goosebump-inducing moment from his final stage performance rediscovers the finale).

BL verdict

In appropriate fashion, Baz Luhrmann turns the biopic into one grand Elvis concert after another, where you almost feel the theater turning into his famous stage show and you realize that you are the one and only ‘King of Rock’. ‘ are in the presence. End Roll” made all the more believable by Austin Butler’s star-making turn and another Oscar-worthy performance from Tom Hanks. In some parts of the fist, spectacle and style have substitute substance, but it all comes together beautifully afterwards where you. I’m going with 4 out of 5 stars.

Rating: 4 out of 5
