Movie Reviews

Good Overview of The King
Rocky Raccoon | Boise, ID | 04/17/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"(3 1/2 *'s) 'Elvis: King of Entertainment' is more of a documentary than it is a compilation of performances. It is an overview of the highlights of his life, his career, his performances, and his movies. As a sampler it works well. Interspersed with television performances and interviews, it is a testament to the phenomena that Elvis is and was. The only drawback is that the brief touches of each highlight will only be teasing and never really satisfying. Seeing footage of his army induction, his wedding, and early as well as Las Vegas performances are an interesting draw.

(Avoid by all means the companion video 'Elvis: Rare moments with the King,' which is published by the same company, is shorter, and repeats the highlights here. With almost no musical samples, the latter is almost more an archive of only sociological importance.)"
More doumentary and little substance
B. Moffatt | Wisconsin, USA | 01/06/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Not bad for a 'history of elvis' type program. Not much at all in the way of any performing. It moves slow and tends to lose you in the first 15 minutes or so. If you want to learn about how elvis got to be "Elvis" then this would be a good disc. If you are looking for simply his shows & songs, this is the wrong DVD."
Very Good Documentary on Elvis Presley
Ernie R. McHone | Carlisle, Ohio | 08/02/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If your looking for a reasonably priced, and entertaining overview of Elvis Presley's life and career, this is the DVD that you should buy.

I was surprised at some of the rare footage that I had not seen before, such as Elvis on the Milton Berle show aboard the USS Hancock, and Uncle Milty playing his twin brother, Melvin.

Suprisingly for a low priced DVD, the picture quality of the documentary and sound is top notch as well. I was suprised at the many performances and interviews that you will see throughout this documentary.

Pick this one up ladies and gentlemen, it is well worth the price! TCB"
Incredible account of the Life of a King
Viv Dear | South Africa | 03/29/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is one of the most comprehensive documentaries of the King's history. It starts during the war years and documents the influence the local charismatic churches had on his life. A great deal of the video coverage is a first for Elvis fans. The account then continues on through his meteoric climb to fame, shows TV footage not seen before and continues on through his movie career to his return as a live entertainer enchanting the world. A tuely worthwhile account for all you Elvis fans out there."
