Reviews are in for Vice – and critics have been left thoroughly divided by the comedy-drama chronicling Dick Cheney's quest to become America's most powerful vice president. Starring Christian Bale as Cheney, Amy Adams as his wife Lynn Cheney, Steve Carell as Donald Rumsfeld and Sam Rockwell as George W Bush, it marks the third time Bale and Adams have acted together on the big screen, after American Hustle (2013) and The Fighter (2010).
