      Critics Consensus

      While the premise sounds promising, the movie turns out to be a tedious and unnecessarily violent heist movie that's low on laughs and leaves no cliche unturned. Read critic reviews

      Movie Info

      It's International Elvis Week in Las Vegas, where the strip is flooded by a sea of King wannabes decked out in jumpsuits and sideburns. But five of the impersonators swaggering into the Riviera Hotel are toting heavy weaponry in their guitar cases. It's the heist of a lifetime, orchestrated by ex-con Michael (Kurt Russell) and his cunning former cellmate, Murphy (Kevin Costner). The crooked Elvises steal away with $3.2 million, leaving the hotel in ruins and a high body count in their wake.

        A big fun heist piece fed on nada but actors' charisma and man, there's plenty here to go around. The writing's a little "ehh" and maybe (just maybe!) there's a little too much of a copycat Tarantino vibe, but past that there's some nice time at the movies action here. Courtney Cox. You know how you hear somebody's famous but can't figure out why? That's how me and Courtney go, until this. She didn't annoy the crap outta me for once, and was even sexy in parts. Wow. But its Costner's film, hands down, no contest.

        Kinetic, energized action / heist film, 3000 Miles to Graceland is a far better film that what has been initially said about it. With a great cast of actors, an effective script, this is a film that delivers an entertaining two hours for viewers that want a mindless action picture to watch. The film is not great, but it's much better than what most reviews have said about it, and there is enough going on-screen to make this a worthy film to watch. I quite enjoyed Kurt Russell's performance as well as that OF Kevin Costner's. The way the film goes into the heist elements is very well done, and in turn the thrills mount up afterwards, and it's a satisfying affair for those that enjoy films like these. I found this one to be underrated, and it's a fun film to watch if you're in the right state of mind. However, the film does have a few shortcomings, and it does leave room for improvement, but it's not a bad film by any means. At times the film is darkly humorous, and those elements, don't really work in the story, and it's what brings down the film slightly, but the idea is very good and it's an entertaining heist picture that deserves another chance. The cast do fine work here, and the story is entertaining enough, even if it's not perfect, it's a worthwhile picture to watch if you have nothing else better to watch. 3000 Miles to Graceland is an average film of course could have been better, and you are left wanting more, but overall, it's a pleasant film to watch for genre fans looking for an entertaining genre film to view.

        The neo-noir crime thriller 3000 Miles to Graceland is a fun film that's packed with high adrenaline action. The story follows a group of criminals that rob the Riviera Casino during an Elvis impersonator convention, but the escape plan quickly falls apart as the group starts to turn on each other. The cast is quite impressive, and includes Kurt Russell, Kevin Costner, Courteney Cox, Christian Slater, and David Arquette. However, the story is a bit uneven and doesn't follow very well. But the action sequences are exceptionally well done, and bring a lot of intensity and energy to the film. There are a number of problems with 3000 Miles to Graceland, but it still manages to be an entertaining thriller.

        3000 Miles to Graceland' isn't quite as dopey as the cover art featuring Kurt Russell and Kevin Kostner clad in Elvis regalia would suggest. Although it breaks little new ground in its already overworked genre, the film does emerge as an efficient crime drama thanks to a gallery of interesting characters, some impressive performances and Demian Lichtenstein's flashy directorial style. After a shaky first half hour or so, in which the film seems to be struggling to establish its direction and tone, the movie miraculously hits its stride and, thereafter, never really lets up. The story centers around a band of ex-cons, united by their almost obsessive love for the King of rock'n'roll, who decide to knock over a Las Vegas casino dressed as Elvis impersonators. Predictably, the heist serves merely as the pretext for one of them, the obviously psychotic Murphy (Kostner), to cold-bloodedly eliminate his accomplices. The fly in his ointment turns out to be Michael Zane (Russell), the most principled one of the group, who survives the holocaust and spends his time, along with a pretty single mother and her precocious child, trying to keep out of Murphy's way. The film is not, however, a total success. For one thing, the violence often seems excessively brutal, graphic and mean spirited for a movie that seems to want to be a lark of sorts (after all, a movie featuring robbers dressed as Elvis impersonators can't be bidding to be taken too seriously). Moreover, the plotting, which far too often relies on unlikely coincidences to keep it rolling, also borders frequently on the incoherent. Finally, the morally ambiguous ending doesn't really sit well with those of us who find a couple of thieves, no matter how charming they may appear to be, unlikely candidates for heroism in the context of a `happy' ending
