A good adaption of part 2 of Atlas Shrugged, greatly improved over part 1.
Although the first half was too talky, the second half of Part 2 had excellent action and excitement. Fans of Atlas should be happy, and others should find it enjoyable. Part 2 is not without flaws -- too much talking heads in the first half, and missed opportunities to show the depradations of government upon ordinary people. Nevertheless a good film.

Loved seeing Part II and can't wait for Part III. I'm not sure why it was necessary to change all of the actors from Part I, but will definitely see Part III when available. We are not a bottomless moneypit for our dear leaders. If you didn't see Part I it will still bring you up to speed.

Fast paced. Great flying scenes. Covered the bases in part 2 of the book; however, it did seem to run from one action point to another. Not enough character building for my taste. Not enough of history with Fransico and no sight of Ragnar, the pirate. I preferred the first Dagny but until they merge all three together for a big DVD it does not really matter. While it is not perfect, I still say go see it.

The movie was about a bunch of rich people playing games with goverment, and each other at the expense of the little guy
(Who is John Gault)?

I loved the film; the acting portrayed exactly the essence of the plot, as written by Ayn Rand.
This is one of the most timely and critical films of our time, to be outdone only by a prompt follow-up with part 3... as in 'WE NEED IT NOW!' Our country IS in an immediate and impending prelude to the situation portrayed in Atlas Shrugged. Anyone who believes otherwise is either on the side of a crushing government, is fooling themselves, knows little to nothing about our country's dilemma or is unable to comprehend reality. Target audience: adults with an open mind, clear intellect and love of self, family and country.
