Vice (2018)

Rated: R - Runtime: 132 min
tesg’s Rating: Two and one half stars (out of four)

Simply put, it’s a shameless one-sided political hit piece.  The film makers even have a copout to it’s accuracy with an opening disclaimer that ends with “We tried our fucking best”.  Still, as one-sided political hit pieces go, it’s a pretty good one.  It’s biggest issue is overstaying its welcome.

Sam Rockwell, Steve Carell, and Amy Adams do a fine job made up as their respective characters, but you still recognize them as Sam Rockwell, Steve Carell, and Amy Adams.  But Christian Bale?  Holy crap.
