got some big shoes to fill, Kurt Russells amazing performance and the Excellent TV mini series where the guy who played Elvis was almost a clone, this looks cracking too and has Tom Hanks playing the Colonel

so went to see this with some friends and they loved it, me not so much, the lead had some terrific scenes especially the younger Elvis but my problem was the colonel played by tom hanks who I felt was so overbearing and one dimensional he could have been a Bond villain he was played to be so evil, I love Elvis, was brought up with his music that was full of joy for me, been to Graceland 3 times but this movie from the 1st scene to the last I felt was so depressing, no joy in any of it and the soundtrack was terrific but that's where it ended for me unfortunately it seemed to concentrate on the colonel too much and glossed over Elvis (think meeting Priscilla was about what 2 minutes?) it was just fragmented scene after scene with no cohesion and I think a lot of this is down to the direction, definitely a missed opportunity and way too long , last half hour or so I was just wanting it to be over
