What to know

critics consensus

Vice takes scattershot aim at its targets, but writer-director Adam McKay hits some satisfying bullseyes -- and Christian Bale's transformation is a sight to behold. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Vice

  • Mar 03, 2020
    Vice begins with a scene of a young and inebriated Dick Cheney erratically driving his car down a country road. The movie proceeds to audaciously portray a man who grows drunk with power and his erratic rise to the most powerful man in the world during the George W. Bush presidency. Director Adam McKay tells Cheney's story with dark humor and a deliberate rule-breaking sense that some audiences will vote against. I, though, found the film to be smart, compelling and one of my most favorite political movie bios.

    Often glib and superficial, but I think that this is mostly an improvement over McKay's "The Big Short" which was barely a movie. Its not that "Vice" is particularly deep or offers any new insights but it feels more relevant possibly because we seem to have forgotten how much damage the Bush Presidency did to the world and I'm glad McKay went after one of its chief architects.

    Despite being a bit messy and juvenile in its first half - like something made by that 13-year-old cousin of yours who just learned how to use Windows Movie Maker and is so full of himself - the film gets considerably better later, when the gimmicks become wittier and the sarcasm sharper.

    McKay takes the approach of throwing spaghetti at the wall and see what sticks and what does stick is pretty good. All the acting is top-notch but the story is a little OCD. No doubt that Lynne Cheney is the power behind the throne - our own Lady Macbeth and Dick Cheney is our own Darth Vader. (1-27-19)
