On the reasonable assumption that no movie featuring an Elvis impersonator can be wholly bad, I was prepared for a high old time at 3000 Miles to Graceland, which exhibits a plenitude of Elvi. The exhibition does not last very long, however. Less than a third of the way through, the filmmakers jettison the premise and trash their own movie.
Roger EbertChicago Sun-Times
Here's a movie without an ounce of human kindness, a sour and mean-spirited enterprise so desperate to please, it tries to be a yukky comedy and a hard-boiled action picture at the same time.
Lawrence ToppmanCharlotte Observer
Like the Big E himself. It starts out fast, dangerous, sexy, confident, funny with an edge. It ends up confused, bloated, unable to leave the stage when it should.
Joe MorgensternWall Street Journal
Nothing but miscalculation from clumsy start to chaotic finish, an action thriller with a cynical, shriveled soul.
Courteney Cox is good as a sexy, hard-pressed single mom, but she alone can't redeem the prevailing stupidity.
Shawn LevyPortland Oregonian
A vile, stupid and ugly movie lacking utterly in pep, thrills, humor, finesse or morals, a dissipating waste of time, money and human resources.
Stephen HunterWashington Post
What you get is the V trifecta: vile, vicious and violent. Oh, and incoherent and stupid. A mess. A mean-spirited completely worthless film that can never give back the two hours it seizes from you.
