Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

It's pretty tough to beat Jailhouse Rock in terms of sheer entertainment, but Elvis lovers are particularly fond of this 1964 hit. The Big E plays race-car driver Lucky Jackson, who arrives in Las Vegas for an upcoming Grand Prix race. Lucky's car needs a new engine, so he gets a waiter job at a casino and starts working his crooning charms on Rusty Martin (Ann-Margret). It's their on-screen chemistry that makes this flick a lot of fun; Presley never had a better co-star than Ann-Margret, and their race-car romance is quintessential 1960s fluff. Then there are the songs, of course, including the snappy title tune, a rockin' rendition of Ray Charles's "What'd I Say?" and "The Yellow Rose of Texas". Viva Las Vegas is one of the Elvis movies that stands the test of time, when the legend was still at his peak. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars FUN IN LAS VEGAS 8 April 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Viva Las Vegas is probably one of Elvis' best known songs, covered by many artists, and features in some well known other movies. And this film is one of the reasons.

Your ninety minutes of fun are guaranteed in this 1964 movie. Elvis and luscious co-star Ann Margaret give one of the most believable on screen performances. It is well documented that the pair had a thing going between them during the making of this movie and their relationship translates well onto celluloid!

Though Elvis Presley is probably one of the best looking men ever, this does not come across too well in this movie. Aside from the fact that he is overly and unnecessarily coiffed and made up throughout the film, Ann stunningly glows all over with natural beauty. You cannot help but concentrate on her every move. And even with Elvis trying his best, her dance moves are very natural and sexy whilst Elvis' seem mechanical and at times awkward. But by his own admission, Elvis was not a dancer. Music simply made him shake and move to the music in very natural ways rather than in choreographic styles. Comparing his more natural Viva Las Vegas screen performance and the choreographed C'mon Everybody dance routine with Ann Margaret verifies that.

Oh the plot, I almost forgot. Ummm, Elvis is race car driver Lucky Jackson and falls for Rusty (Ann Margaret) at first sight when her sports car develops 'whistling motor' trouble. So who can blame him when he painstakingly tracks her down and tries his best to charm her into his arms? Now he also has to win the Grand Prix race - racing other cars and another guy for the ultimate trophy, Rusty!

5.0 out of 5 stars Viva This Elvis Movie! 13 Jan 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This one is more fun than it's legal to have at the movies thanks to Elvis, Las Vegas, and the sweet and delectable Ann-Margret. It's a pretty good story about Lucky Jackson (Elvis) trying to enter and win the Las Vegas Grand Prix, which doesn't get in the way of all the entertainment. This was Elvis at his best and Ann-Margret as Rusty matches him scene for scene, making this one something special.
Cesare Danova is the Count Elvis will have to compete with on the race track and off, his rival for Ann-Margret from the moment she shows up at the garage, leggy and gorgeous, and asks, "Can someone look at my engine, it whistles?" She is sweet dynamite in this film and is the only one of his leading ladies to match him. They are magic together, and only years later would she reveal their love for each other, but not revealing any details. She was all class then and she's all class now.
This Elvis film is in a class by itself. There are teriffic songs with no 'throw aways' here. "What'd I Say," "I Love My Baby, and My Baby Loves Me," "You'll Always be My Love," and of course, "Viva Las Vegas," capturing perfectly the excitment of the Las Vegas Strip are all here to enjoy. The most fun though is the back and forth of Elvis and Ann on "The Lady Loves Me, But She Doesn't Know It Yet" that culminates in her pushing him into the pool!
Their first date captures all the fun of this movie as they go skeet shooting (she beats him), water skiing, get to ride mopeds around an airfield, dress up and play gunfight (she beats him again), and get to take a helicopter ride over hoover dam and the marina where her dad (William Demarest in a nice role) lives on a boat. He likes Elvis and knows his daughter does to, in spite of Rusty's fear that he'll get hurt racing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bright Lights City Gonna Set My Soul On Fire 9 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Viva Las Vegas is a cracking film, very easy to watch and with Elvis and Anne Margaret sizzling on screan, this film is a joy.
Releases in 1964, Viva Las Vegas outgrossed Elvis massive 1961 smash Blue Hawaii for box office takings in America. It also outgrossed the Beatles Hard Days night; the King was still more popular than the fab four.
The music is very very good as is the race scenes, but it's the interaction between Ms Margaret and Mr Presley that makes this so good; especially the What'd I Say sequence and the C'mon Everybody sequence; also the scene where Elvis is a waiter, this is so very funny,
Critics and many fans have called this Elvis best film of the sixties and the only film of that decade that should be looked at; this aint true, as this is good fun, it does not in any way come close to his best work: Flaming Star, Wild In The Country, Trouble With Girls, Change of Habit, Blue Hawaii, Follow That Dream etc.....but check it out, it is a fun, feelgood film!

4.0 out of 5 stars Really Enjoyable and Lovely in Hi-Def 3 Feb 2008
By E. Smith TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
I bought this for our UK Playstation 3 simply because it gets good write-ups for the hi-def transfer and I like the theme song, although I'd never seen it before. It turned out to be one of the most enjoyable films I've seen in a long time. The colours are bright and cheerful, most of the songs are catchy and Ann-Margret is just great to watch. What I like most is that she really seems to be enjoying herself throughout the film, particularly in the dance scenes. My favourite scene was the What'd I Say routine, where Ann-Margret just seems to be having a whale of a time. We watched the film in 1080i and were very impressed, especially in the close-ups. Even the neon scenes of the Strip looked very clear, with no noticeable bleeding of the colours. I played it in True HD sound, but to be honest didn't hear anything from the surrounds, although there was plenty of direction from the fronts. As a film, it's definitely one for cheering you up on a wet Sunday afternoon, and as a Hi-Def purchase it's well worth the money for the extra clarity of the bright colours. Hard to believe it's now 45 years old.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best featuring Elvis.
The on screen chemistry between Elvis and his female co star is there for all to see. The story line is not bad either.
