Reviews:
"[Bale] plays him as another one of his ciphers -- a man who never had the flair or magnetism we expect from even the most craven politicians, but played his cards right by attaching himself to obnoxious chumps who had no problem with delegating responsibility." - 12/17/2018 A.V. Club


4 stars out of 5 -- "[McKay] hits pay dirt whenever he drops us into the place where the political and the personal collide. That’s the danger zone where no joke is launched without a sting in its tail." - 12/17/2018 Rolling Stone


4 stars out of 5 -- "[The film] serves as a genealogy of the various mutations of the American right as it descended from cynical to genuinely ghoulish." - 12/17/2018 Empire


"There's smart, there's wicked smart and then there's Adam McKay smart -- the latter of which is on full display in VICE, a scorchingly audacious and dark tragicomedy..." - 12/17/2018 Hollywood Reporter


"[B]rashly entertaining....Christian Bale nails the Dick Cheney persona -- dry, pointed, deceptively dull, invisibly passive-aggressive, a blank with a hint of a growl -- and does it with a playful bravura that could hardly be more perfect." - 12/17/2018 Variety


"[I]f this is in some respects a real-life monster movie, it’s one that takes a lively and at times surprisingly sympathetic interest in its chosen demon." - 12/17/2018 New York Times


"In Adam McKay’s free-ranging, tone-shifting, darkly funny, super-meta, hit-and-miss, absurdist biopic VICE, Bale nails it as the resilient, backstabbing, front-stabbing, ruthlessly ambitious Cheney." - 12/24/2018 Chicago Sun-Times


4 stars out of 5 -- "As stunning as the exterior is, however, it is the way Bale vanishes inside it that truly impresses." - 01/20/2019 Total Film
