I missed the actors from the previous movie, but they did well. Engaging from beginning to end. Amazing the parallels to the current state of the country! Can't wait for Part 3!

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.

Follows the book pretty well, but a lot of things had to be updated to keep it current, like the need to have coal(which was in the book)but there ain't nuthin' in the movie that ran on coal. Oh well I don't know how I could have done it differently. The cameo with Sean Hannity was inspiration. The message is the important part. Younger kids wouldn't understand it, probably.

Wonderful - if you know the book

As a fan of the book, I loved this movie. The acting was great, the characters had great depth, and the dialog confronted powerful human issues. It hit the high points of Part II of the novel well. I have some great images to go with the story, which is a joy and a treat for me. And, If you don't know the story, it would be tough to connect to everything that is happening. It reminded me of Dune in this way - Great if you know the story - and only OK if you don't. The scene with Sean Hannity, Juan Williams, and Bob Beckel was great. If you are into politics, you will find it provocative and unapologetic. As a cultural critique and conversation piece, it is a must.

Must See!

Action. Realism. Idealism. Intelligence. Not your typical Hollywood movie. This adaptation of Part II of the novel Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand has so much. The completely different cast than Part I does a very good job of bringing to life the vivid and prescient 1957 book. If you want a movie that takes real issues of today such as the morality of HOW you make a living, the politics of economic decline, the virtues of thinking and acting on your own terms, this film is for you! The critics will pan this movie, but pay attention to the reaction of the audience - they love it. See it, expereience it. Discuss it with your family. Urge your neighbor to see it. This movie is not to be missed... especially during this pre-election time when so much of our country's future rides on an understanding of how we need to proceed. And if you have not already read the book,and the movie speaks to you, don't put off the urge to read it. You will be richly rewarded
