Summary: Vice rises up against many of its competitors in the American Political genre of film as Director Adam McKay delivers a very informative, dramatic, and what I can assume to be as accurate as possible tale of Vice President Dick Cheney, and the George W. Bush administration.
Being Australian and under 30, Dick Cheney is not someone I ever payed a lot of attention to. I knew he shot that dude and the dude he shot is the one who had to apologise somehow, and that he was one of the evil puppet-master types who stood behind George W. That’s it. So while Cheney as a subject matter isn’t something I can say I **care** about, it’s also not material that’s old hat to me either. I ended up watching it only because that’s what my mate wanted to do for his birthday, but I’m glad I did. I did not **love** _Vice_, but for the sort of thing I don’t normally gravitate towards, I was riveted.
_Final rating:★★★ – I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
We find the same sense of disillusioned humor as in the excellent The Big Short: the US are obviously the country of all the opportunities, even (especially ?) if you are unscrupulous and ruthlessly ambitious. The trio Christian Bale, Steve Carell and Sam Rockwell is awesome !
Where’s Ricky B**by When This Race Started?
I looked at other reviews of this movie before I went to see it. I expected a Political Farce and in a way it is one. When I saw Adam Scott who created The Anchorman, Ricky Bobby (Taladega Nights), and a lot of other Will Farrell films wrote the script, I expected Comedy. With Brad Pitt and Farrell producing it, I expected a lot of laughs. While there are some laughs here, the film is really a political lightening rod and more.
Cheney’s friends, insiders all, helped George W Bush win the Florida recount according to this movies account.
Vice President Dick’s power is more of an insider power than even these film makers imagined. Of course now there are some issues today these events shaped which are not addressed here, but at times the film overpowers the viewer with it’s musings. It illustrates very well why this country not only has not changed but why we can not make progress.
For those who wanted Hillary Clinton to be President, it goes over the highlights of her speech supporting the Iraq war (archive footage). In other words, if the Republicans and this Vice President are responsible for the Iraq war, the Clinton Republican in sheeps clothing ( Hillary is a former Walmart Board member) along with other Democrats at the time were together in this power elite alliance. That is the problem with the Democrats still in power, while they pointed the finger at Dick, they actually supported him insupporting the Iraq invasion effort. This explains the problems created in foreign relations during Obamas term when ignorant power elite put Clinton into a responsible role (Bengazi) she could not and did not handle resulting in some tragic deaths.
In a major spoiler, at the end is the best punch line of all time. “Liberals always require facts.” I had to laugh at that. Liberals rarely require facts. Liberal Science states that “Increasing taxes and throwing money at the Climate Change Problems will fix the problems.” Throwing money at problems only hides them, and it never fixes anything. Money is used to reshape facts and make it look like the problems are getting fixed.
This film paints the fact that the power elite always get what they want and Vice President Dick got even more than that as part of that elite. Facts do not stop the elite. Not only does this film make them up, but this film shows the line between the elite and the rest of us starkly, and is produced by those very same elite, The film almost makes Cheney look like a hero when Mary tells him she is gay and he says “We love you no matter what.”
The film does make nice use of archive footage to paint Dick Cheney’s life. It starts with his DWI drive as a youth, to his near failure as a man until his wife scolds him and knocks him out of it. Cheney’s power under Nixon and Ford is explored some, and in ways I have never seen on screen before. In a way it illustrates the way Nixon and the elite put Ford into power so he would pardon Nixon. That pardon is a real disaster of American History, and Cheney helped.
The recount of 911 with Cheney’s role in the response is shown, as well as his support of the response. Since the facts focus on Cheney, 911 gets a little short changed. Barack Obama gets sworn in (archive footage) and then the film focus shifts to Cheney’s health and continuous focus is put on the abuse of power created by the powers assumed by the President (at the request of Cheney according to the film) that destroyed Americans privacy. The film goes on to Cheney’s heart transplant and to 2016 and 2017.
An important point skipped is that with Barack Obama as President and one party rule, invasion of privacy’s powers given W Bush after 911 for the President were extended when they were supposed to expire by that party. The film dwells on these invasion of privacy powers at the end of the film and the fact it is still there, despite the Democrats chance to let those powers expire when Obama took office.
Cheney is a part of the ignorant power elite, not the entire problem which is much bigger than him. When your knowledgeable enough to realize this, you can appreciate this movie more than anyone can imagine. (And this explains current issues very well) Did Cheney run W Bushs Admin?
This movie does not solve any problems. It does show why power and corruption by an ignorant power elite class beyond Dick Cheney have created a more dangerous world today.
An ignorant Corrupt Power Elite will kill us long before Climate Change will, and much quicker. That is the strange depressing message this movie delivers, totally by accident.Rather than condemning Cheney alone, it condemns an entirely disfunctional system.
I thought that Cheney’s shot gun was supposed to be the blast accident I got from this film, when I saw the trailer.
