Trivia

Christian Bale was Adam McKay's only choice to play Dick Cheney. Having worked together on The Big Short (2015), McKay was impressed by Bale's ability to psychologically break a character apart and put them together again. McKay said, "The second I thought of doing the movie, I knew right away, the most exciting person to play him is Christian." See more »

Quotes

[from trailer]
George W. Bush: Whaddaya say?... I want you to be my VP. I want you, you're ma vice.
Dick Cheney: Well, George, I, uh... I'm a CEO... of a large company. And I have been Secretary of Defense... and I have been White House Chief of Staff. The Vice Presidency is a mostly symbolic job.
George W. Bush: Uh-huh.
Dick Cheney: However, if we came to a, uh... different... understanding... I can handle the more mundane... jobs. Overseeing bureaucracy... military... energy... and, uh... foreign policy.

Excellent - American true story exceeds my highest expectations
17 December 2018 | by finnzboylnSee all my reviews

After I first saw the trailer for this film, I wasn't expecting such a funny, yet unsettling film. Christian Bale plays Dick Cheney, an intelligent man whose thirst for power sees him become the most influential American Vice-President ever. Bale's performance is commendable, but Vice's supporting cast - consisting of Amy Adams, Steve Carell and Sam Rockwell - complete the movie. Writer and Director Adam McKay brought this true story of power (and it's abuse) and politics to life with his unique perspective, and the skilled editing makes this film all the more enjoyable. In my opinion, Vice is a must-see film of 2018. 9/10
