    This looks fantastic.

    Bale is the chameleon of all chameleons. And Rockwell as Bush looks incredible too.

    Legendary film title.

    Bale as Cheney is a must-watch.

    This has potential.

    Bale is the man (pun fully intended)

    It seems, that Steve Carell is more and more oriented to serious characters.

    This has major potential. I’ll definitely go see it. Rockwell has been turning out some great performances these last few years . Bale is always good. Loved him in The Big Short.

    Looks decent, and Bale as Cheney actually looks good. Josh Brolin as Bush in 2009's W will be hard to beat however.

    Could have been more bi-partisan but overall they did a good job of telling his story.

    It seemed long length-wise but you're telling a 40 year story; if it was shorter they'd have to cut out some details.

    Yes he did:

    "Not only did Bale exhaustively research the role, driving everyone crazy along the way; he also gained over 40 lbs., shaved his head, bleached his eyebrows, and did special exercises to thicken his neck."​

    Is Christian Bale's Weight-Gain for 'Vice' the Most Extreme of His Career?

    Bale was fantastic.

    The movie was kind of all over the place stylistically so it seemed to drag me out of the immersion Bale and Adams kept pulling me into
