‘Vice’ casts Christian Bale as Dick Cheney in irreverent satire

Whatever the line between prestige HBO film and theatrical movie, “Vice” — an irreverent look at former Vice President Dick Cheney — doesn’t entirely bridge it. Buoyed by strong performances — including an unrecognizable Christian Bale and Amy Adams as Cheney and his wife Lynne — the movie ultimately seems too pleased with itself, bringing only marginal insight to its admittedly secretive antihero.
