After squaring off in 1995 with competing movie biographies of frontier lawman Wyatt Earp, actors Kurt Russell and Kevin Costner co-star in this action crime caper as former cronies engaged in a series of double-crosses over some stolen loot. Michael Zane ( Russell ) and Thomas Murphy ( Costner ) are the leaders of a gang of ex-convict thieves using an Elvis Presley impersonator convention to pull off a daring heist in a Las Vegas casino. The gang also includes Gus ( David Arquette ), Hanson ( Bokeem Woodbine ), and Franklin ( Christian Slater ). Although they manage to retrieve the money, the crooks turn on each other in bloody fashion and Murphy (who believes he's actually the illegitimate son of Elvis) makes off with the illegal funds. In hot pursuit are the police and Michael, who's encumbered by his girlfriend Cybil ( Courtney Cox-Arquette ) and her young son Jesse James. Written and directed by music video creator Demian Lichtenstein , 3000 Miles to Graceland also stars Kevin Pollak , Ice-T , and Howie Long . — Karl Williams

Story Synopsis:
Teetering on the edge of the TMP (Too Many Producers) Factor, 3000 Miles To Graceland stars Kurt Russell and Kevin Costner as ex-con pals who cook up a plan to rob the Riviera casino during the International Elvis Week festivities. After the successful heist, Costner’s character pulls a fast one on Russell and the rest of the gang and makes off with all the loot. Complicating matters are gal-pal Cybil (Cox) and her young son, Jesse James (Kaye). Despite what you saw in the trailers, this movie is not funny or clever; it’s violent and cruel. (Laurie Sevano)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.40:1 DVD exhibits exciting images that are nicely rendered throughout. Colors are rich, with well-balanced fleshtones, vibrant reds, bold blues, and deep blacks. At times, fleshtones touch a slightly orange hue, but colors are quite solid with no apparent smearing. Contrast and shadow delineation are nicely balanced throughout. There are a few distractions in the way of edge enhancement and pixelization, but overall this is a picture that should surely delight. (Suzanne Hodges)

Soundtrack:
This is a very intense, entertaining soundtrack presentation, for which the music and effects completely fill and energize the listening space. This superb Dolby® Digital 5.1-channel discrete soundtrack features impressive fidelity and natural tonality. The soundstage is fully engaging throughout, with an uncanny, holosonic presence that benefits fully from creative, aggressive usage of split surrounds. The use of back surround decoding will further enhance the sense of spaciousness and envelopment. If you’re looking for a soundtrack that will fully absorb you into the surround soundfield, this could well be one of your best bets. Sound effects have also been impressively crafted and selected for this soundtrack, most notably the distinctive-sounding gunshots and ricochets. The .1 LFE is engaged prominently, and the music has a deep, penetrating low-end presence, as well as certain effects (such as explosions) and the poignant rumbles that occur on occasion. The dialogue is also impressively natural sounding and with very good integration with the on-screen action. This soundtrack is an absolute winner and a creative stand-out for its very compelling, aggressive spatial characteristics and remarkable fidelity. (Perry Sun)
