    Ladies and gentlemen, Elvis has left the building…with $3.2 million in stolen jack.

    As leaders of a gang who pull off a daring Las Vegas casino heist while disguised as participants in the town`s International Elvis Week, Kurt Russell and Kevin Costner are armed, dangerous and sporting hunka-hunka sets of awesome sideburns. Awesome, too, is the film`s supporting cast: Courteney Cox, Christian Slater, David Arquette, Kevin Pollak, Howie Long, Ice-T, Jon Lovitz and more. Get in, strap down, hold on. 3000 Miles To Graceland, directed and co-written by Demian Lichtenstein, is one kicky, volatile, heat-seeking missile of an action thriller.

    A dumb thriller despite the impressive cast. Elvis is probably rolling in his grave (assuming the so-called singer IS dead), since most of the movie revolves around him.
    The video transfer is very good. There are no compression signs and the framing is accurate.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is good. While I cannot stand Elvis` music and songs, the soundtrack is good throughout and the surrounds are used mainly for sound effects.
    The menus are all still.
    There are no extras on the disk.
    Bottom line - let the King rest in peace, please! Give it a miss.

    An excellent action thriller! Tense nailbiting stuff. 5 guys heist a casino with lots of gunplay and bloodshed. And thats just the first 20 minutes! After that theres a lot of betrayal and more bloodshed as greed comes in. There is a cross country race to get to an antiques dealer who will trade the marked money for real money. A really entertaining and splendid movie that is well done and didnt get the acclaim it deserves. The acting was decent but nothing spectacular.Kevin Costner in particular, did well with his role. The movie boasts an all round splendid cast including Kurt Russell, Courtney Cox, David Arquette and Christian Slater. The film also deals with obsession about Elvis but you dont need to be an Elvis fan to enjoy the movie.

    The picture and sound are of good quality but again not really superior. The soundtrack is really good. There is some Elvis stuff but most of it is modern music.

    There is only a mere trailer as an extra which is dissapointing as the movie is good. A real let down.

    On the whole, a good movie that is let down on the dvd release due to a lack of extras. The movie is definetly worth seeing and should prove a good rental. Its not the kind of movie that I`d recommend purchasing cos you only really have to see it once.

    BTW the certificate of the dvd is wrong. It is most definetly an 18 (unrated)
