5.0 out of 5 stars Robo-Scorpion Smackdown!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! May 23 2004
Format:DVD
Every once in a while a movie scence comes along that is so epic in proportaion of greatness that it changes the way we view cinema for all time. All of this and more can be said of the opening sequence of this movie. Imagine this. The desert, outside Las Vegas. Suddenly the ground trembles. Its time for a clash of the titans. Two roboscorpions appear over the horrizon with one purpouse in mind-DESTROY EACH OTHER! What happens next is one of the great movie scenes of all time. Two collosual, grinnin scorpions batlle in battle in which there can be no winner. WHO WILL WIN?!?!?!

1.0 out of 5 stars had to huff gas to get through this one June 10 2004
By W. Wade
Format:DVD
Maybe someday when I'm running out of room on my amazon site and need more space, I'll take this review off to make room for my review on how much I like pears--yeah, I'm talking about the fruit. 3000 miles was the most craptacularly written movie since Gigli, which came after it, yeah, it's that bad- it's even worse than a movie that hadn't been created yet. Can you grasp that? Do you realize what a metaphysical can of worms that is? The movie opens with Kurt Russell going to a bar in the desert and meeting Courteny Cox, banging her a couple times, then dressing up like Elvis with Kevin Cosner and robbing a casino. This sounds funny right? Yeah, it quite possible could've been, but it kind of turned out to be the opposite, horrible. Some parts are entertaining, like where a kid in the movie goes to the bathroom and the guy in the stall next to him farts. If the best part though is a guy farting, you need to ask yourself this question: Would I be spending my time more wisely learning all the lyrics to theme song for Captain Planet, the cartoon?

4.0 out of 5 stars "Either quit smoking or get a new lighter." May 14 2004
By Meesha
Format:DVD
This was still a good movie, but it could have been so much more, if they'd maybe toned the violence (which wasn't that bad), and given Christin Slater some actual lines to say, instead of having him in the background until his final moments. Same goes for David Arquette.
The director managed to rake in the big name stars to attract people to come and see the movie. Kurt Russell, Kevin Costner, Courtney Cox, David Arquette, Jon Lovitz (seriously underused), and many more, which people may recognise.
Why was I attracted to watching this movie? It comes across as being a movie about Elvis impersonators who rob a casino, and has some great stars in it. Not only do the four Elvis impersonators never perform together (now wouldn't THAT have been a sight), but Kevin Costner is quite dreadful. And I normally like him too! It's safe to say that I liked him in The Bodyguard and Robin Hood Prince of Thieves (apart from the hair!), but I get put off by the constant chain smoking! I just don't like guys (or girls, ruining their good looks) who smoke. It's a complete & utter turn off. I also like Mel Gibson - apparently I'll hate him if I ever see Payback.
Courtney Cox does little more than flaunt her body and 'get it on' with Kurt Russell. And speak with what I think was supposed to be a bad Southern accent.
Apparently there could have been another version of this. Kurt Russell had a version, which was more comedy orientated, and focused more on his relationship with Courtney Cox. Kevin Costner's version was more action orientated. And guess which one was put out to the viewing public? Kevin Costner's version. The guy has a serious of flops under his belt, yet keeps churning them out. And we're supposed to trust this guy when he brings out a film? Whatever.

3000 Miles to Graceland was advertised as a very different movie. I have to say, if I could just watch movies made by the guys who put together previews, I'd be a lot happier.
The preview emphasized the whole Elvis angle. To wit: a bunch of crooks decide to rob a Vega casino dressed as Elvises (Elvi?). Kevin Costner plays Thomas Murphy, the bastard child of Elvis. Actually, there's possibly two bastard children of Elvis in this movie. Ya see, there were 35 claimants stating that Elvis was their pop, but 33 of those DNA tests proved false. So who is the other Elvis-spawn? We're never told.
Anyway, that's all besides the point. That whole Elvis thing? That's not what the movie's about.
In fact, at first I thought the movie was about giant robot mecha. It starts with two computer generated robot-like scorpions battling each other to the death. Only they have big, grinning maws for faces. The black scorpion fights the silver scorpion. One of them is probably supposed to be the good guy. It doesn't matter, the movie seems to say, because they're both mean scorpions and you shouldn't be rooting for either one.
The first half hour of the movie is the aforementioned heist of the casino by the Elvis gang. The potential for entertainment is ruined by weird, stuttery camera shots and a total lack of rhythm. Interspersed between images of Elvis-impersonators firing machineguns are Broadway shows of elvis. But none of it gels quite right.
When we're not seeing Elvis with a gun, which apparently the director thinks is absolutely hysterical since he shows these shots over and over, we're seeing women do naughty sexual acts. Courtney Cox, in the first role as a sexual plaything that I can recall, acts as...well, a sexual plaything (unless you count Ace Ventura too).

How can a movie with this good of a cast be this bad? It was a little more than 2 hours of mind numbing boredom. It was very predictable too. Read more
