Wonderful - if you know the book

As a fan of the book, I loved this movie. The acting was great, the characters had great depth, and the dialog confronted powerful human issues. It hit the high points of Part II of the novel well. I have some great images to go with the story, which is a joy and a treat for me. And, If you don't know the story, it would be tough to connect to everything that is happening. It reminded me of Dune in this way - Great if you know the story - and only OK if you don't. The scene with Sean Hannity, Juan Williams, and Bob Beckel was great. If you are into politics, you will find it provocative and unapologetic. As a cultural critique and conversation piece, it is a must.

Must See!

By FreedomWorks
Written October 13, 2012
Action. Realism. Idealism. Intelligence. Not your typical Hollywood movie. This adaptation of Part II of the novel Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand has so much. The completely different cast than Part I does a very good job of bringing to life the vivid and prescient 1957 book. If you want a movie that takes real issues of today such as the morality of HOW you make a living, the politics of economic decline, the virtues of thinking and acting on your own terms, this film is for you! The critics will pan this movie, but pay attention to the reaction of the audience - they love it. See it, expereience it. Discuss it with your family. Urge your neighbor to see it. This movie is not to be missed... especially during this pre-election time when so much of our country's future rides on an understanding of how we need to proceed. And if you have not already read the book,and the movie speaks to you, don't put off the urge to read it. You will be richly rewarded

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.

Atlas Shrugged Part 2

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)?
