"Its fantastic. Exciting. Thrilling. Gets it right!"
Mark Kermode, Kermode & Mayos Take
"Luhrmann has the instincts of a pop video supremo. And in pop god Elvis Presley he may have found his perfect subject." ★★★★ Kevin Maher, Times (uk)
"[Butler's] keen instinct for melodrama and burn-the-screen-down charisma give his Elvis a midcentury Method-acting rawness." ★★★★ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
" The Australian filmmaker has delivered something far more compelling: an American fairytale." ★★★★ Clarisse Loughrey, The Independant
"Never anything less than a feast for the eyes."
★★★★ Jayne Nelson, Radio Times
"Luhrmann’s colourful house style can be frantic and shallow, but his desire to get our knickers in a twist, here, feels honest-to-god urgent. This is the most substantial thing he’s done since Romeo + Juliet."
★★★★ Charlotte O'Sullivan, London Evening Standard
"When Austin Butler shakes his hips in Elvis’s first gig as a full-blown rock ‘n’ roller, it’s like watching two stars being born."
★★★★ Philip De Semlyen, Time Out
