The shoot-outs are big and brassy, and there is much collateral damage to be had. In fact, I thought he was being kind. We were then presented with an hour and a half of forced lines and inconceivable actions of 4 shallow characters. I was really surprisedbecause of negative reviews. After hearing a lot of bad reports on this movie I was pleasantly surprisedwhen I finally saw it.
The thing is, though, it works as mindless, forgettable trash. Yes-- but only if you don't take it too seriously. You will see this movie and after you weredone with it you will say this movie was different than I thought -guaranteed. But Thomas Murphy decided to keep all the money for himself and shot all his partners, including recently-freed ex-con Michael Zane.

Nothing thought provoking, nothing funny, nothing fun.
The way Costner portraits the lunatic actually believing himself to be one of Elvis' illegitimate children is just fantastic and worth watching the movie. Russell's cut was more comedy oriented and focused on his character's relationship with Cybil while Costner's was more action oriented. Cybil, the single mother played by Courteney Cox, likewise seemsconflicted between genuine love and emotion and the excitement of easywealth and a life lived on the edge. There is a huge shootout and security guards and innocent bystanders drop dead by the dozen. I mean, look at this cast: Kevin Costner from The BodyGuard, one of myfavorites; Kurt Russell from Grindhouse; Christian Slater and HowieLong from Broken Arrow; Kevin Pollak from Hostage; Ice-T as the tokenrapper; and the best part of all, Courteney Cox, in a role that is sofar from Friends that it is a classic.

The violence is not well done - just shooting of endless bodies with big guns. The only question in my mind is why I didn't get up and walk out during that unforgettable opening credits sequence? From my view, both vehicles were ghastly but entertaining. Like True Romance, and Pulp Fiction this film is movie junk food thatIlove to eat.

Well, let's go back a year or so when Russell and Costner both made Wyatt Earp films, playing the title roles. Film purest will classify this film as crap, and so it is;butthis is crap that the masses want and the movie elite hates. But Thomas Murphy decided to keep all the money for himself and shot all his partners, including recently-freed ex-con Michael Zane. I gave it pointsfor the style and the fast-moving story, but it's too unpleasantoverall for me. A film is advertised as Elvises robbing a Las Vegas casino during an Elvis convention.
Une convention de fans d'Elvis Presley s'y déroule ; le parfait déguisement pour passer inaperçu parmi la foule d'aficionados est donc celui du King. Russell is also wonderful to watch, as the ex-con who just wants to get enough money to settle down on his boat nice twist there and who doesn't share the enthusiasm of the others for killing. It could have been a really satisfying package if they'd wrapped things up a good half hour sooner. The story centers arounda band of ex-cons, united by their almost obsessive love for the King ofrock'n'roll, who decide to knock over a Las Vegas casino dressed as Elvisimpersonators. Then it turns into a road movie. 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.
If that is the sort of thing that offends you than don't see thismovie. This movie is one of the worst I've ever seen. This is a perfect example of critics killing a great movie itwas the violence and language. Well, after the big Las Vegas heist and shortly thereafter when we gota full look at the wild characters and even wilder action scenes, thefilm settled down and the dialog took over. 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. There was absolutely nothing likeable about Kevin Costner's character and yet at the end of the movie the comments the cops made about him made it seem like he was supposed to be a folk hero to the viewer. I went in hoping for lots of shoot outs and cheesy one liners.
He makes for a truly soul-cringing villain. Costner is always on the leafy edge, whether he's dancing with wolves, building baseball fields for ghosts or water-skiing as bait for sea monsters. Sure hope he does it again, maybe in a tighter movie. But it is Kostner as Murphy who sets the real tone for the film. Written by Trivia When the film finished shooting, and disagreed about the way the film should feel.
It is one of those guilty pleasures of mine. He also described a few plot points that I had trouble believing. A gang of ex-cons rob a casino during Elvis convention week. I gave him another chance. In terms of plotting, the film follows a pretty traditional route for thiskind of film. Stay attheend of this film for they have a bonus with the credits, an Elvis videoand afunny out take from the film. Well, not above the title.
The climax is predictable, unfortunately, and doesn't leave us with much to chew on, but the overwrought stylings are the thing. The acting is good, Kevin Costner's bad guy isgreat, it's well filmed with a lot of excellent cinematography, combinedwith absolutely perfect use of the soundtrack from minor audio cues rightthrough to the explosions. For one thing, the violenceoften seems excessively brutal, graphic and mean spirited for a movie thatseems to want to be a lark of sorts after all, a movie featuring robbersdressed as Elvis impersonators can't be bidding to be taken too seriously. On the plus side, I have to say, this is my favorite Kevin Costner performance. What I finally saw is one of the best action movies I've seen in a long time.
