Excellent updated representation of Ayn Rand's book. Very enjoyable but scary representation of our world to be if our government continues to grow and control our economy and our lives. Must see.

Better pacing, better story line, better casting... you don't have to have read the book to be swept along by this one. There are some great lines, delivered well, and good action sequences. My only complaint is that at times the dialogue seems forced to get philosophical points out quickly that book develops over time. All in all, though, the movie is faithful to the book but suspensevul and visually engaging, too, so well worth seeing for Ayn Rand afficionados and the general public alike.

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.

A good adaption of part 2 of Atlas Shrugged, greatly improved over part 1.
Although the first half was too talky, the second half of Part 2 had excellent action and excitement. Fans of Atlas should be happy, and others should find it enjoyable. Part 2 is not without flaws -- too much talking heads in the first half, and missed opportunities to show the depradations of government upon ordinary people. Nevertheless a good film.

Loved seeing Part II and can't wait for Part III. I'm not sure why it was necessary to change all of the actors from Part I, but will definitely see Part III when available. We are not a bottomless moneypit for our dear leaders. If you didn't see Part I it will still bring you up to speed.
