A great movie to check out if you haven’t is 3000 Miles to Graceland. The movie stands out as a cult classic with a diehard following of heist flick lovers and Elvis lovers.
3000 Miles to Graceland at its heart is a heist movie with a lot of action and a touch of dark humor. Kevin Costner and Kurt Russell lead the cast. The rest of the crew includes Christian Slater, David Arquette, and Bokeem Woodbine. The movie is directed by Demian Lichtenstein, who also co-wrote the screenplay.
My fondest memories from this movie include the Soundtrack, with a song I was obsessed with and still am to this day called Angel Dust by …Bender
The movie has a lot of fun with its Las Vegas setting, and the neon-lit casinos provide a colorful backdrop for the action. The heist sequence is well-executed, and there are some clever twists and turns along the way. To add to the oddity of the movie and what cements it as a cult classic is the fact that several of the characters are Elvis impersonators.
One of the movie’s strengths is its cast. Costner and Russell are both veterans of the genre, and they bring a lot of charisma to their roles. Slater and Arquette are both great as well, and they provide some comic relief in between the action. Woodbine is perhaps the standout of the group, with a menacing presence that makes him a memorable villain.
Overall, 3000 Miles to Graceland is a fun, entertaining movie that delivers on its promises of action and thrills. If you’re a fan of crime movies with a touch of dark humor, you’ll definitely enjoy this one.
Murphy – We’re the only two people in the world, kid. The rest of them are all just extras.
