All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

Vice, a muddled, disposable crime thriller, has modest merits.

You've see this movie before, but you haven't seen it filtered through Madsen.

Writer-director Raul Sanchez Inglis tries to do several ambitious, honorable things with Vice, but for much of the action, they cancel each other out.

Vice has the bargain-basement production values and indifferently plotted narrative of one of those cheesy Z-grade pictures that clutter up cable networks after the clock strikes midnight.

Film Journal International

Walker's histrionic voice-over meditations on guilt, destiny and life's fundamental injustice are painfully juvenile, but the film overall oozes an all-too-convincing atmosphere of despair, resignation and bitter self loathing.

Audience Reviews for Vice


Micheal Madsen stars in this crime thriller about a task force of cops that make a huge drug bust just to have themselves taken out by someone one by one of course they all point fingers at each other when they find out the reason behind there partners getting killed and its up to Michael Madsens character of *Walker* to put it all together pretty decent small budget movie shoots high to be like *Street Kings* with a twist does fall short but worth a watch for fans of crime thrillers and Michael Madsen
