Waiting for Part III
Atlas Shrugged, Part II was a fantastic movie, and generally true to the novel. I was very impressed with it, great action scenes, major characters had some depth to them, the story was fairly understandable, even if you hadn't read the novel. I would definitely see it again, and I can't wait until Part III comes out to see how they conclude it.
So much of what Ayn Rand spoke of in this novel is, unfortunately, very true today in this country. It's almost a cautionary tale for our time. However, Ayn Rand isn't for everyone. Many find they don't "get" it, others disagree on either the basic premise or on various points with her philosophy. It doesn't change the fact that there is still an "aristocracy of pull" which is prevalent, even in the past two presidential administrations, and many before. It goes to show what unintended consequences can arise from such activities.
I want DVD copies of Parts I and II, and eagerly await to see how they conclude the series. BRAVO!
