For an Elvis fan like myself, this was entertaining enough but I felt it lacked grittiness. In other words, a Hollywood treatment of a biography. But my only real complaint is that "Elvis" looked the same from beginning to end, and never reflected the significant changes in appearance during his beginning years. It didn't really get to the later years where more dramatic physical changes occurred. But lots of good music, decent acting and dialogue and it kept me amused for 6 hours.
