Vice (2018)

TOMATOMETER

Critic 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.

Critic Reviews for Vice

All Critics (62) | Top Critics (15)

The ensemble is magnificently rude and amoral, but even better is Vice's thrusting spirit of montage -- daredevil editing that hasn't been attempted since the high-flying heyday of Oliver Stone.

Dec 17, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's a blistering biographical portrait that, one way or another, will provoke a passionate audience reaction.

Dec 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Can someone please put Adam McKay in charge of all the biopics?

Dec 17, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

[A] slick, wildly meta, and occasionally too-clever portrait of the most influential and easily least understood figure to ever hold the nation's second-highest post.

Dec 17, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

The pace is jaunty, the scenes crackle with gleeful, giddy incredulity, and the dry business of statecraft attains the velocity of farce.

Dec 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Not really a biopic but a two-hour hate-fest that stoops lower than necessary and rarely scores a laugh.
