I wasn't sure what to expect of this - I hadn't seen the original. I was really quite surprised that this was as good as it was. Elvis is look great, songs are a bit cheesy but, hey, it's an Elvis movie, it's what's expected! His acting is not bad and this has a great supporting cast. It's beautifully shot and really is quite enjoyable.
What a shame Elvis didn't get more of this kind of thing - instead he got Harum Scarum (but we won't go into that). If you're an Elvis fan, then you will thoroughly enjoy this - if you're not then give it a try - you'll be pleasantly surprised.
