do NOT hesitate....I went from major skeptic to major enthusiastic supporter!
on August 17, 2007
I hate biopics...the stars are never as interesting or charismatic as the artists they portray and they just come across as second class...TV!
well...I passed on this when it ran on the tube...and I WAS WRONG! This is off the hook good...the star gets Elvis...the shyness, the enthusiasm, the desire for fame....the naive little boy in the ever evolving sex symbol package, Randy Quaid is dead on perfect as the Colonel..and the rest of the cast does not dissapoint.
I am telling you...the recreations are breathtakingly cool.. these producers GOT IT...and GOT IT RIGHT...
this is from a very very hard to please skeptic...
Elvis fans will love it...casual fans who may be interested because of all the press on Elvis this week (30th anniversary of his passing)..this would be a great place to learn about The King!
