If you don't like movies about great ideas, this is not the movie for you.
If you don't like movies with characters that act on the virtues of rationality, honesty, integrity, productivity, justice, pride, self-esteem, honor and benevolence, then this is not the movie for you.
The original story was written in 1957, but the world in it could be today, or a today a few years from now, but if you don't like stories with that kind of precience, don't watch this one.
If you wouldn't like a story that is a mystery depeicting the murder, not of a person's body, but of his soul - and the fight to save him, then stay home and drone off on TV, after all, you wouldn't want to have to think.
If you want to lead an unquestioned life, then this is not the movie for you, so stay home and drink beer.

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.

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.

The long awaited Part II of Atlas Shrugged does not disappoint the true believer. The cast changed, which could have been weird, but surprisingly didn't detract from the film. In the long run it will tarnish the continuity of the trilogy. Will the cast change yet again for Part III? Part I had slightly better production values but Part II has much more plot as we see a quickening of the incremental progressive destruction of the country. Things are a lot less comfortable for society in Part II and the government continues to make ever expanding grabs of power (sound familiar?). Every Ayn Rand fan will see and enjoy this film.

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!
