This movie is so on point with what is happening in today's society. Hank's speech needs to be made into a commercial as a wake-up call to all citizen's of this ever declining Republic. The best part...the liberal critics are panning it so it must have hit its mark.

Pure Propaganda

This movie is trying to demonize people whose believes are different from others. The dialogues are pretty simple and clearly trying to accomplish the objective of the movie. I knew what the movie was about by reading its description but I wanted to have my firm opinion after watching it, I have to admit that staying the whole movie was painful. I believe people have the right to disagree but not to demonize others in order to prove a point and that is exactly what this movie is trying to do.

The assumption it's one vs the other?

For those that think this movie says one of the two parties is better than the other really need to look carefully. This isn't anti-republican, or anti-democrat.

The professional critics must have pre-wrote their reviews

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

Liked it very much

I like it even better than the first one. They were able to present Rand's long speeches with a few important lines. There were some exciting special effects. Esai Morales makes a good Francisco D'Anconia. It seemed very relevant to today.
