If you weren't an Elvis fan before this you will be. Seeing his story unfold makes his music so much better. Austin Butler was amazing as The King Of Rock & Roll. Tom Hanks is amazing as Parker

Austin butler was amazing and i love luhrmann’s style i wish we could get a longer cut with iconic scenes from other Elvis movies but so far for me this is better than bohemian rhapsody the style of luhrmann goes well with Elvis and i didn’t mind the new school music in some parts because it attracts younger audiences that listen to that type of music like myself i am a 18 year old Elvis fan ever since i was 12.

Austin Butler did an outstanding job as Elvis. It’s a must see if you are an Elvis fan especially a Baby Boomer and grew up beside Elvis. It did however, bring back all the sadness I felt at such a tragic loss.

Tom Hanks was the best part of this film. Baz Lurhmann delivers. Elvis and Priscilla could have been better cast.

Great reminder that No man is self made. Though I'm sure Elvis would have been great even if he partnered with a different promoter, it still stands that he couldn't have done it in his own.

I thought it was long and depressing to be honest. There were some good parts for sure and Austin and Tom Hanks, were phenomenal. I felt some of the information disclosed should have remained private, even though I knew certain things that were revealed. 45 years after he is gone, why tell those things to the public now?

Seemed very on target regarding what really transpired based on what I remember when he was alive. Priscilla and Lisa Marie claimed it was on the money. Austin Butler was amazing! Movie is a bit long.

Put aside any inaccuracies (that I don't know about and don't much care about), put aside any shortcomings in Austin Butler's performance (which was extremely challenging for a young actor, even a very good one), and put aside the fact that it's a movie made for a generation with a five-second attention span, and you'll find yourself engrossed in this hypnotic celebration of a man and of music. Rarely are we shown the origins of Rock N Roll, the music that still lives on in the colloquial form of the term "rock star," or what it once represented and still does in the hearts of many. But Baz Luhrmann tries and succeeds at shining a much-needed light on an American tradition, and on the dangers that come with commercializing everything, even a man's soul.

Elvis seems perfectly content being a glitzy, bejeweled extravaganza, even when the film’s nearly three-hour runtime leaves its energy — which never fully recovers after the first half — waning by the end.

Unfortunately, what audiences get from Luhrmann is simply excessive: his fast-cutting super-montage style overpowers the subject matter, and the result is an impressionistic, jumbled highlight reel of Presley’s many accomplishments, despite vivid recreations by actor Austin Butler as The King.

Elvis is the Baz Luhrmanniest film Baz Luhrmann has made yet, a compilation of his greatest filmmaking hits, all employed for a film as excessive and grandiose as Elvis himself. Though the framing device doesn't always work, Austin Butler's stunning performance, lavish production design, and comic book-like editing make for a movie not unlike one of Elvis' own — full of personality, kind of empty, but undeniably enjoyable.
