You have to admit that this cynical and methodically researched film isn't pulling any punches.

A very opportune and pertinent film detailing how the US as we know it today, has unraveled into this place where the inept can rise to power. [Full Review in Spanish]

Vice is an engaging experience, one that frequently amazes .
January 17, 2019
Vice establishes a boisterous vision for popular political cinema we can only hope McKay continues to pursue.

[Vice] captures the frustration of having a conflict that brings extreme reactions without the possibility of any resolution. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 17, 2019
A product of flamboyant vitriol that inspires hatred, resentment and ultimately, despair.

January 17, 2019
Bale is barely recognisable as the balding, fat and aged politician, and charts Cheney's barely noticed rise to prominence with a restrained and masterful glower.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 16, 2019
I agree with McKay's take on Dick Cheney in principle, but as a movie Vice only barely passes muster because of the flaws in its execution.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10
January 15, 2019
Vice is an incredibly raw, visceral and humorous film with McKay putting his heart into the heartless. Bale is formidably puissant in this transformative role.

Christian Bale... shows why he is one of the best performers of his generation. [Full review in Spanish]

January 14, 2019
It's almost uncanny just how much of a doppelganger Bale becomes as the cinematic version of Cheney, a dry man of few words that exudes a boring outward persona.
January 13, 2019
McKay put his heart into portraying the heartless - even if it comes off cold as ice.

You learn a lot about what this guy accomplished, whether you agree or not...it's a great movie, and Adam McKay is proving that he has the goods.

January 11, 2019
You might walk out never wanting to touch politics again, but you will marvel at the performances and Adam McKay's direction.

January 11, 2019
In a game of mirrors between postmodernity and simple occurrence, the film plays represents the ways in which the protagonist is both an excessive, fat and great, Christian Bale and the obesity of our most intimate stupidity. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
January 11, 2019
Vice is the purest strain of a political drama or the description of a man completely consumed by lust for power. [Full review in Spanish]

Fans of McKay's The Big Short will know what to expect, but might be surprised as well.
January 10, 2019
The film takes the discourse to a new and fascinating metaphorical and humorous dimension. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 10, 2019
This brilliant film explores what writer and director Adam McKay was able to uncover about Cheney's life through drama and considerable satire.
January 10, 2019
All this amounts to McKay's version of truth. And as busy and overstuffed as that truth may be, it's certainly plausible.
