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.

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.

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.

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.

I enjoyed the dramatization, but I felt like there were a couple beats in the direction of the movie that felt either out of place or incomplete. I honestly wouldn't recommend it for people looking to just be entertained, but it does have its moments.

It's a unique animal. A very unorthodox retelling of a story you may not have heard. Really paints certain figures in a bad light but it never really says whether it's making half of it up. Very entertaining and funny. Good work by the actors but it kinda takes you out seeing them under the prosthetics and makeup. Loved Sam Rockwell, such a perfect casting! The movie is self-aware to the point of obnoxious self-congratulation, and it's actually fine if you can get with it lol. Kinda liked it. The agenda just wasn't my favorite.

It was spot on. As political & news junkies we were even surprised by Chaney’s evil. Reading the reviews I have no idea why anyone would find this humorous , dull or offensive. . The truth is not biased. Bales actually looked like & sounded like Chaney. Incredible acting cast

It’s been long rumored that Cheney was acting as President while Bush was only a proxy. This movie confirms that theory.

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.
