The story presents a series of biographical and comedy events about the story of Vice President George W. Bush. That story began with Dick Cheney, a modest bureaucrat from within Washington, who quietly enjoyed enormous powers as Vice President George W. Bush in a period that had an impact on the world. It seems that Dick Cheney has formed the country and the world in ways that have influenced the spirit of the world and its being.
What a waste of talented actors and makeup artists. Yes, Bale physically transformed himself, but his Cheney had no passion and could not glue the various bits and pieces of the script together. A definite fail for writer/director Adam McKay.
