Elvis | Ratings & Reviews

Musical biopics tend to be fairly rote affairs, but Baz Luhrmann's take on Elvis is sheer energy and spectacle, with a sensational performance from Austin Butler as The King. This is mythology, not biography – and it’s all the better for it.

"It’s all a bit much, which means it’s just right."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"A spangly pinwheel of a movie that converts the Elvis saga we all carry around in our heads into a lavishly staged biopic-as-pop-opera."


"The affinity the director feels for his showman subject is both contagious and exhausting."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"It’s not a movie so much as 159-minute trailer for a film called Elvis – a relentless, frantically flashy montage, epic and yet negligible at the same time..."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"The problem here is that Luhrmann’s Colonel Parker... is possibly the most insufferable movie character ever conceived. The guy makes Jar-Jar Binks seem like Elliott Gould in The Long Goodbye."


"A hip-swiveling profile loaded with risk and reward."

Entertainment WeeklyEntertainment Weekly

"Elvis is the Baz Luhrmanniest film Baz Luhrmann has made yet..."

Slash FilmSlash Film

"Baz Luhrmann’s sweaty, seductive biopic makes the King cool again."


"Baz Luhurmann’s trad but terrifically enjoyable (Elvis) has swagger to spare, and a star-making central performance from Austin Butler..."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Luhrmann has never been an accomplished dramatist. He has the instincts of a pop video supremo. And in pop god Elvis Presley he may have found his perfect subject."

The TimesThe Times

"(A) loving, kinetic chronicle..."


"Austin Butler is the only thing that works..."

Vanity FairVanity Fair

"A larger-than-life, energising and wildly entertaining anthem to the King..."

Time OutTime Out

"Whatever flaws the film has, Butler’s Elvis is mesmeric."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"You can’t help falling in love with Baz Luhrmann’s jukebox epic..."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"Elvis is an exhilarating, maddening spectacle - but one made with love."
