Part 2 is somewhat better then part 1. Most of us who read the book will say 'book is better' but at least big idea was transferred to movie format.

Atlas Shrugged Almost Prophetic!

By GeoGnop
Written October 13, 2012
Ayn Rand, author of the book by the same title written 55 years ago, paints a picture of what could happen in America if extreme Leftist ideology gains control of government. Atlas Shrugged II could be a current news documentary. The economy/energy picture it portrays is in the very least very believable. It takes your breath away as you live out the results of current government policy if left to evolve unchecked. The difficulty of the challenge to resist and redirect the rise of statism in America, is clearly shown. A must see for every thinking American concerned about the direction of our nation.

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!!!

Atlas Shrugged II

I LOVED the opening scene of Dagny flying into Galt's Gulch! I thought both the scenery and the direction were excellent throughout the movie. The casting was exceptional, especially Esai Morales as Francisco. I found all of the characters, both the heroes and the villains, very believable. Hats off to the casting director! What was most impressive was the conviction with which the heroes delivered Ayn Rand's words. It was great to hear them come alive on the screen. Rearden's "court" scene was cause for a standing ovation in the theater as well as on the screen! In today's culture where individual rights ARE being trampled incessantly by the professional "bullies" in Washington, where force is advocated as the solution to every social issue, it is uplifting to hear Ayn Rand's words spoken by her own characters on the big screen for everyone to hear. There is no better defender of one's right to one's own life and all that THAT concept entails.

What a message this movie sends to us during these terrible times. Ayn Rand's classic was a terrifying prediction of times to come, and what happens when people lose there sense of personal responsiblity, feeling entitled to being taken care of from cradle to grave. "Absolute power corrupts absolutely!!" If you missed Atlas Shrugged I, rent or buy it and then GO SEE THIS AMAZING FILM! WAKE UP AMERICA... BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!!
