Vice (2018) review

A good movie

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this movie but since there was a solid cast involved, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, even though I did like ‘The Big Short’, to be honest, I thought it was rather overrated and, with this new movie from Adam McKay, I once again ended up with some mixed feelings. First of all, after giving its President a full feature movie (the also decent but not really exceptional ‘W.’), to give is Vice President its own movie, aren’t we give this administration slightly too much attention than it actually deserved? I mean, seriously, even if Dick Cheney was one of the most notorious and probably the most influential American Vice President that ever lived, who would actually remember him in 50 years? In fact, even if it seemed that the Bush-Cheney administration would be the all-time low in American politics, right now, Donald Trump is brilliantly showing that, somehow, it always can get worse making the relevance of this movie even more questionable. Still, I have always been a sucker for movies dealing with politics and, at least, there is no doubt that there was a strong cast involved (Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Steve Carell, Sam Rockwell). Above all, I was seriously impressed by Christian Bale. Indeed, once again, the actor went very far to actually looked like the real guy but his performance went way beyond that and he basically completely disappeared in this character. Anyway, to conclude, even if it wasn’t anything really mind-blowing, it was still a decent watch and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
