Rating: 4/5 -- Embora Presley fosse um péssimo ator, seu carisma e sua intensidade nos números musicais transformam este em seu melhor filme, já que, além de evitar as fórmulas que viriam a dominar seus longas, ele estabelece uma ótima química com Tyler.
Cinema em Cena
[JAILHOUSE ROCK] features a lot of dynamic musical numbers. -- Grade: B+
Rating: B -- Just a notch above the average Elvis vehicle (which is not very high), this early b/w effort (Elvis' third feature) suffers from a silly prison yarn but is ultimately saved by the rendition of some good rocking tuners like the title song. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- An early, lively Elvis musical, aesthetically light years from the tacky one-offs, such as Spinout that followed. The title number... well, it rocks.
F5 (Wichita, KS)
Rating: A+ -- Jailhouse Rock (1957) is a prison-related, rags-to-riches musical-drama (and biopic parable of a predictable downfall and recovery) from director Richard Thorpe. It was the most influential black-and-white rock musical... Full Review
Rating: 7/10 -- Even if the plot is thin, the characterizations are solid, and the music is some of Elvis's best. Full Review
Rating: B- -- singing carries the day, just as we'd expect in an Elvis movie Full Review
Old School Reviews
After learning to play guitar and sing during a stint in the Big House, a minor-league punk kid becomes a rock star, with a little help from a beautiful agent. But the pressures of fame wear him down. Considered by many to be Elvis Presley's best film because of its eerie narrative prescience, noirish setting, and quality songs, especially the poolside performance of "You're So Square."
After a barroom brawl, young Vince Everett is sent to prison for manslaughter. With a little help from his hard-nosed cellmate, Everett begins developing his singing talents. After his release, the bitter but determined Vince spares no one as he climbs his way to the top of the music charts.
