Summary: this blu-ray will show great on a standard TV or HD, the color is so great! (even though you're looking at the sixties) this is one of his better movies! "blue hawaii" is also. most elvis movies are great...but w/ann margaret..it's even better. she was his equal. really. and she still looks fabulous. you could watch this over and over!! a great movie!
Pros: Broad Appeal, Catchy Songs, Good Story, Great Cinematography
Summary: Eye-popping transfer of Elvis' ode to Las Vegas, so sharp and colorful you feel like you could almost reach into the screen. Elvis and Ann Margaret at the top of their game, belting out catchy high-energy ditties and dancing across every inch of the widescreen frame. A top-notch supporting cast only adds to the fun-fun-FUN of VIVA LAS VEGAS. If only all of the Elvis features were as much of a blast as this one!
Pros: Catchy Songs, Gorgeous Colors, Great Cinematography, Prime Elvis, Unique Choreography
Excerpt: Just got this yesterday at Best Buy for $9.99 canadian. I know it's an old release but I'm happy I picked it up. It's fun listening to all the old songs. The Dolby TrueHD really picks up during the songs with some nice front speaker separation. The video is clean with beautiful colors. Elvis and Ann- Margret are almost impossibly good looking. Although you can see some of Ann's facial blemishes behind her makeup courtesy of blu-ray. She's still gorgeous.

Excerpt: Like most of Elvis' films from the 60's the plots are pretty lame and the cheese factor is really high but who cares they're fun to watch. Seeing these two ridiculously good looking people in HD is a total blast from the past and even some of the songs are pretty catchy too!! Warner did a maginifcent job with the transfer. Seeing Vegas in the vibrant 60's with the styles and fashion of the day on Blu is the only way to go!!
Excerpt: The plot's nothing special but just the same, watching Elvis and Ann Margret is very entertaining. They make the film special and make it a film that is easy to watch again and again. I enjoyed all the musical numbers. The improved sound quality was very nice. The picture quality was stunning.
