At first I was upset with all new actors. However, after getting to know the new actors, some of them did a better job playing their characters than the previous movie. I really miss Dagny though. I really enjoyed the story and can only say if you are a Ayn Rand fan, then you NEED to see this. I am going to see part 2 again this weekend and cannot wait for the third installment.
WHO IS JOHN GALT?

I loved the book but dividing the movie up into three or more parts separated by months to years is a total disaster! I know it's a long book but why three (or maybe more) parts? This movie deserves the same treatment as Gone With The Wind and other lengthy films. They should have made it one 3 to 4 hour movie with an intermission and you'd have a classic.
I did enjoy Part 1 as it followed the book closely and I thought Part 2 would finish the book with the same cast. Why would you change all the actors for Part 2? Big mistake! They were not as good, and the plot line was sophomoric at best. Maybe the original cast wouldn't do Part 2 when they realized what a bomb the producer was creating.
Don't waste your time with this loser. Read the book instead.

I missed Part 1; but for sure I'll see Part III when it comes out. This movie was well done. Now I'm interested in reading the book.

An outstanding movie. Stayed pretty true to the book. Preferred the Dagney in the first movie, but this one acquitted herself well. Interesting to know how many of the actors/actresss understand and believe what their characters are espousing. Acting was good; cinematography was very good. I'm still amazed at how prescient Ayn Rand was, writing this story in 1957 that's completely applicable to today. I strongly recommend everyone see this movie - especially so prior to November 6!

I loved the part I and part II was just as unbelievable...this story is so ahead of its time. The cast changes were for the best (particularly with Hank and Dagney) and I was absolutely riveted from beginning to end. 7/4/2014 seems like so long to have to wait for part III!!!
