BLUE HAWAII Elvis - tHe MaN wiTh The GoLdEn VoiCe
on 22 December 2002
If you've got the video and think you've seen the film -think again! Unlike the video this DVD has perfect picture and sound quality. The colours are vivid, the image is pin sharp and the sound is in n 5.1 surround sound. Also with it being in widescreen you get all the side action and get the full effect of the beautiful locations used. Its an audio-visual treat.
The film itself was ELvis most succesful. There are some great songs including Can't Help Falling In Love with You and some great one liners and a light romantic storyline with Elvis in top form as a light comedy actor.
Blue Hawaii is pure escapism and it established a formula that would be copied in other Elvis films. Think of the Bond films; Girls, locations, vechiles, action, Girls, throwaway humour with Elvis having a license to sing.
A first rate film and a top notch DVD - had there been Extras I'd have given it five stars. A minor minus point is that they've used a still from Paradise Hawaiian Style rather than Blue Hawaii on the back cover but thats hardly going to spoil you enjoyment of the film or DVD.
