The facts of Cheney's rise to vice presidential power are fairly well known, but Cutler assembles them here with propulsive brevity.

Not a lot new here, but Cheney gets a fair hearing -- even though a tougher one is occasionally warranted.

The World According to Dick Cheney has interesting insights and revealing moments, but for critics who long to confront Mr. Cheney it may prove dissatisfying, because it allows him to make astonishing assertions without direct contradiction.

The film probably won't change anyone's opinion of the man, but that doesn't make Cheney any less of a fascinating figure.

Many expected to see Cheney not just screwed, but nailed to the wall. This documentary comes awfully close.

The World has plenty of dissenting interviews with journalists and lefty policy wonks who say that the measures Cheney employed were neither necessary nor productive. Cheney shrugs off their arguments.

It's hard to imagine who will watch The World According to Dick Cheney and come away satisfied or newly informed; even those prone to froth angrily at the mere mention of Cheney's name will have to work extra hard to get outraged all over again.

One doesn't expect miracles from a film of this sort. But it's as if Cutler and company didn't even try to engage Cheney and draw him out.

Despite the shortcomings of the interview, the film assembles a portrait of the man's life, eventually keying in on his time as vice president to George W. Bush.
