A shapeshifting Christian Bale delivers a (bald fat) Dick Cheney at his most ruthless in Adam McKay’s follow up to The Big Short.


McKay opens his tale in 1963, with a surprisingly hopeless and feckless Cheney being booted out of Yale and very nearly losing his marriage as a result of his drinking and fighting. Through sheer ambition, he gets a job alongside Donald Rumsfeld (Carell) in Congress, then in Nixon’s White House. After a stint in Congress himself, he is settled into the private sector when George W Bush (Rockwell) asks him to be his vice president. Spotting a chance to grab real power, he returns to politics and makes a series of moves that changed world history.


Christian Bale and Amy Adams are astonishing as Dick and Lynne Cheney, with the latter offered up as the equal to her husband’s Machiavellian scheming. Elsewhere Sam Rockwell makes for a crowd-pleasing George Dubya and Steve Carell is unlikely but effective as Donald Rumsfeld.


In an awards season crammed with contenders, it is one to keep an eye on. A highly entertaining look at an American tragedy which still resonates today. (Research Chris Coetsee)
