After 95 computed reviews, 79 of which were positive and 16 negative, Elvis received his Fresh certificate at Rotten Tomatoes. The feature film appears at this time with 83% of approval from international critics, while the average rating is 7.1/10.
Achieving a Fresh certificate is the highest point production can reach on the site, as it needs to be universally praised to earn it. The overall score must be greater than 75%, with five ratings for large vehicles.
The site’s consensus reads: ”The standard biographical formula is shaken up in Elvis, with Baz Luhrmann’s dazzling energy and style perfectly complemented by Austin Butler’s outstanding performance.”
In Brazil, the premiere is scheduled for July 14.
