What the Critics say

Die Burger

Gabi Zietsman quote iconEven if you feel bored with the circus that is real life American politics, Vice is worth a watch not just because of its take on an important part of modern history, but also a great narrative study on how facts are portrayed in biopics and will appeal to those in the film industry. Sometimes audiences forget that movies will always be filtered representations of reality, and Vice breaks that wall enough times to make sure its audience questions everything it’s showing them.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconThe result is something of a messy 130-some minutes of satire, political commentary and finger-pointing. But enough of it works and Bale’s transformation is so brilliant and, at most times, so completely believable that alone makes the film worth seeing.

Tomatometer quote iconVice takes scattershot aim at its targets, but writer-director Adam McKay hits some satisfying bullseyes -- and Christian Bale’s transformation is a sight to behold.
