Read This Before Judging The Movie!
So I am 17, and I saw this movie with my mom and dad, and I have to say, this has been the best movie I have seen in a long time. First of all let me say that this movie is about POLITICS and about the VICE PRESIDENCY, if you do not like politics then stay away from this movie! The movie goes over Dick Cheney's life before he became the VP to George Bush, and with a cast like this you can't go wrong! There is constant language from everyone, yes, but you have to realize that this was a very tense period of time because our country was going through so much sh*t as well as the people that are shown in the movie. Let me just take a moment to say what is in the movie before I dive deeper into why this movie was so good. The language is constant such as the F word, Sh*t, Damn, Jesus, and a lot more. I would not take anyone under the age of 14 to this movie because of the language. The violence is minimal it shows someone getting electrocuted from his job and it does show terror attacks and it does show Cheney shoot someone with a shotgun (not much is shown). This movie was really good and Christian Bale did an amazing job with the role! Steve Carell did too, he was my favorite part he taught Cheney everything and without him, Cheney wouldn't be the most powerful and most shadiest VP in history! This movie went through so much stuff like how Cheney got kicked out of Yale for partying too much, how he became so powerful, even about 9/11! This movie goes over everything during Bush's presidency and more. There is one scene that was very graphic at the end which is when Cheney gets his heart transplant and it shows organs, blood, etc. One thing you should note is that the guy who donates the heart for Cheney is the narrator of the movie and he goes over everything in detail. This movie was overall a great movie and I am definitely watching this on DVD when it comes out haha.
