Movie Summary

Director:
Demian Lichtenstein
Released:
2001
Rating:
R

3000 Miles To Graceland is a delightful 2001 crime caper with a star-studded cast and an endless supply of Elvis impersonators. Murphy (Kevin Costner) heads a five-man crime ring for an ingenious and profitable Las Vegas heist. The thieves will land at the Riviera Casino during Elvis Presley week, carrying their guns in guitar cases, and dressed like The King to match the crowds. The gang includes ex-con Michael Zane (Kurt Russell), Hanson (Christian Slater), Gus (David Arquette) and Franklin (Bokeem Woodbine). The plan, of course, goes awry but they manage a daring helicopter escape and get away with $3.2 million. Grabbing the money turns out to be the easy part. The robbers quickly begin to fight among themselves and federal marshals Quigley (Thomas Haden Church) and Damitry (Kevin Pollak) are on their trail. Director Demian Lichtenstein supplies plenty of gunfire, foul language and sexual content, so this frolicsome robbery flick is best suited to mature audiences.

Metacritic Score

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    If drive-ins still existed, this film would rule there for weeks.

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    This bloated spectacle has all the get-up-and-go of one of the legendary late-era Elvis Presley concerts. The picture feels longer than Presley's career and as irrelevant as he was...

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    One of those movies that makes you want to throw up your hands in despair, disgust, or maybe both.
