What a GREAT movie!! We loved Atlas Shrugged Part 2!!!! It is excellent; the kind of movie that you are sorry to see end – wanted to watch more!!
The actors did a great job, the special effects are realistic, and it so reflects what is currently going on in our society. A must see!! We will buy the DVD when it becomes available.
Looking forward to Part 3.
Thank you FANDANGO for making the movie going process so easy!

Sometimes, parts 2 or 3 of anything can leave you just wanting to see the original again and not bother with its sequel. Atlas Shrugged II however, does not fall into that category.
Although changes in the original actors were evident, you quickly accepted these new persons fulfilling the character parts in true fashion and with conviction. It doesn't take long at all to accept the new Hank and Dagney!
Part 2 lived up to the book in every fashion and left me with egarness to see the final chapter.
Who is John Galt? He's each of us who loves freedom. He's each of us who wear a uniform to defend our country. He's each of us who question authority and stick by the rules when the rules make real sense. He is and should always be those of us who will do all within our power to make sure that America stays the "shining city on a hill" that most people in the world look up to. He is us! Stand up for the America that Ayn Rand embraced and loved and wrote her warning book about.

I can't fathom some of the criticisms given to this movie by some of the professional critics. The acting in this movie was far better than the first. Jason Beghe gave a phenomenally strong performance as Henry Reardon. The addition of fine performances by recast and new supporting characters did a great job making this film. I hadn't read the book and watched the first film on PPV beforehand but the acting easily overcame their caricature nature the plot required.
The criticism of it's effects are warranted but overblown. Most effects were kept to a fair minimum because they seemed to realize it was their weakness but they were decent enough not to pull you out of the film.
The small budget also hit it in that there's a lack of grandeur and wide world in that they had to keep filming to fairly small sets and couldn't show the immense nature of a global depression. Luckily that's offset by the acting and script pacing.
The critic who said it was sub-1986-porno is crazy. 8/10

Great movie especially for us Capitalists.......As in the previous generations, what the US Government needs to do today is provide some help for the businesses in the United States and then "get out of the way" as the people running those companies will make them great taking the economy up to new heights!
