I am as guilty as the next man, but every now and then I get bored in Walmart while my wife who is shopping, and to kill time I stop and look at these "delights." Sometimes I laugh at the plots or "drool" over the covers and go on, but every now and then one of them catches my eye and I stop. I have found some jewels here, Pawn, Stark Raving Mad, Possums, and this one.
The cover is the first thing that catches your eye. If you can ignore the girl, you will notice that you know these actors. There's Christian Slater, Gary Oldman, and Dane Cook? Next the plot, cowboys, Indians, Elvis, and a stolen artifact? Hmmm, ? Interesting, no?
Guess what, this is a very well made movie with good acting and the plot.......oh yeah!!! This movie has a goal to entertain and NOT bore the viewer. It, unlike many well "known" movies, does it job, and does it well. It entertains and it keeps your attention, and I dare you to say that you figured out how it would end. This movie is quirky, funny, and above all not a time waster.
I truly wish I could tell you more about the story, but I can't. It would spoil the movie for you. If you are into a "hair off" movie with dark humor, and a variety of Elvis impersonators and one impersonator Elvis impersonator then this is it.
"The Blonde" (Helena Mattsson) recites Edgar Allen Poe poetry and rather badly as she too hunts for the mask. This grindhouse aspect of Poe reading was done rather well by Daryl Hannah in "Eldorado in 3D." The fact is that they stole the idea and could not improve upon it.
Be warned that Christian Slater performed as well in this one as he did in "Hatfields and McCoys: Bad Blood" and "Soldiers of Fortune."
The film has some twists, but lacks any serious clues, so don't look for any. The dialogue and jokes become stale as we get a constant barrage of Native American vs. Indian or midget Elvis vs. little person Elvis humor. The Asian listing the stereotypes wasn't funny either. It is a film for those who will watch anything grindhouse, even those that don't measure up. Wayne Gretzy's daughter Paulina has a minor role as "the deputy."
Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Heather Roop).
Did this ever go to the movie theaters? i don't remember it so i'm assuming it's direct to video. But on the other hand, it's got a number of well known actors so maybe it had a big budget. Either way, it's fantastic. Super awesome fantastic.
What's it about? All the other reviews already tell you that. The chief of an Apache casino loves Elvis impersonators. He holds contests for them. He lets them play 5 card draw in the back room. And that means they're past the main security, making it a lot easier to steal a ceremonial mask stored in the chief's office. The next day, the mask is gone and all they know is that someone dressed like Elvis took it. And from there begins the movie - everyone is looking for every Elvis they can. The casino owners send out their best men. The Rancher, who owns everything that isn't on the reservation and wants the mask just because he hates the Apache, sends out his best men. The cops want it. The neighbor wants it. Some drop dead gorgeous blonde assassin who acts oddly and keeps throwing out red herrings wants it. Asian Elvis. Midget Elvis. Gay Elvis. Everyone. And poor Christian Slater, a down-on-his-luck nobody who loses all his money and enters an Elvis impersonator contest to impress a girl, is in the middle of it, getting beaten up by every single person in town.
The official review i read said it's like Snatch, Pulp Fiction, etc. i read that it's grindhouse or Tarantinoesque. i have no idea where those ideas come from.Read more ›

Although I thought it was funny, it is not a movie to watch with your grandmother. There are only a couple of scenes that, if not offensive, would be at least awkward. Read morePublished 14 months ago by M A Brown
