This movie shines a bright light on how America became the country it is now. At times it is unsettling and hard to watch but that is the truth and it must be addressed. Bale brings his A game and will get his Oscar nomination. It’s gripping and full of history for those who love American politics and history

Great work by the directorial team. Awesome cast, everyone has a great grasp on their respective characters. it'll wake you up. and if you're already awake, it'll give you a nudge out of the door.

Interesting to learn, Reagan & George HW helped set in motion this slanted news we see today (https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/what-lead-to-the-demise-of-respectful-political-discourse_us_58b33175e4b0658fc20f96f6 ). The movie also got right how we ended up in Iraq. Not to say that the movie is all based on fact and clearly it doesn't proclaim to do so. Yet it manages to add some humor into what could've been a dry topic. If anything it should cause one to investigate how we got where we are in politics today.

No real surprises but I clearly understand why people want new young people in in positions of influence and power. Corruption is everywhere that Big money is.

A typical human justification of do whatever war crime and get away with it if you are in politics. I wonder why it has such high critic rating. Never trust rating.

Not sure what I expected but wish it wasn’t so desperately biased. I think the story could’ve been told without the redundant jabs.

If you hated the man before the movie you’re really gonna hate him. The cast is superb, Christian Bale stellar, Amy Adams great. Steve Carrell excellent, and Dana Carvey very good. You will get a education.

This was one of, it not the, worst movies I've seen this year (I've seen a lot and the year is almost over). I had to fight to keep myself awake for most of it and once was woken up by a bomb going off in the movie. It had a great cast of people, but it was very slow and boring to say the best.

great actors, decent story. way too left leaning. but certainly didn't bash the right. truthful to how Republicans think, which made me realize I'm more Republican than Democrat and made me hate the left that much more.

Christian Bale and Sam Rockwell are amazing! Definitely oscar noms. I learned a lot of what was going on that time. I know reps say it's too far left, but you can't argue with facts.

typical slanted view from left-leaning partisan know it alls. GREAT acting saves this film from an otherwise abysmal take on an era of American governance that was anything but partisan.

Bale did a great job✅, politics has nothing to do with gay/lesbian issues. Its all about money/ power/ i scratch your back if you scratch my back( not a total loyalty) how to benefit their own egos. Most republicans in power use religious views/ human emotions for their own benefit( they really don’t care who sleeps with whom). Its all about 💰🛢💰💵

Through wit, surprise and an irrepressible ballsiness comes a scorching humor that neither curdles nor becomes exhausted.

I spent much of Vice trying to work out why the same narrative strategies that worked so well in the raucously entertaining The Big Short suddenly felt smug and even propagandistic.

There’s anger but no insight in Vice, a glib portrait of Dick Cheney that preaches to the choir but becomes less persuasive as it goes along.
