3000 Miles to Graceland Blu-ray Review – Awesome & Entertaining!

It’s time for my 3000 Miles to Graceland blu-ray review. This is a heist film from 2001 about a group of men dressed in Elvis costumes that intend to rob a casino. It stars Kurt Russell, Kevin Costner and Courteney Cox. It’s yet to receive a proper UK blu-ray release so you need to obtain an imported version. Is actually any good though? Let’s take a closer look.

Plot

Four men arrive dressed in Elvis costumes at a Las Vegas casino which is holding an Elvis convention. Their intention is simple, to rob the casino.

Style / Direction

The film was directed by Demian Lichtenstein whilst David Franco was the one responsible for the cinematography. I found the film to be exceptionally well shot with the story switching perspectives it always felt like the story moved along at a high tempo. That said the film definitely has a comedic tone.

Music / Audio Effects

The music is provided by George S. Clinton & Richard Meijer.

Acting / Characters

The acting in this action heist is excellent. Kurt Russell and Kevin Costner are two of the robbers dressed in Elvis costumes. There’s a tension between them meaning things aren’t going to end well. The two work brilliantly off one another.

Then there’s Courteney Cox as Cybil Waingrow a women just looking for the right opportunity to fall her way. Will she double cross one these Elvis impersonators ? You bet she will and even using her son in the process. She delivers one of her best performances to date in the movie.
