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!

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!
