FRUSTRATING....PART II IS NOT THE ENTIRE STORY.....THERE WIILL BE YET ANOTHER PART
I'd have preferred the second installment be 3-4 hours long...to FINISH the book, I was disappointed where they chose to stop..... More confusion for the 'Atlas' novices.,
I felt cheated that I must go back again, (without warning), making it a total of $60 for 2 people. I've read Atlas Shrugged 5 times. It's my favorite book, but not everyone has the luxury of spending so much to see ONE story during these economic times.
Part one needed some work, part two was better, but for someone who didn't read the book (like my husband)....my giving him the backgroundl, as the movie progressed, STILL made it very complicated for him to understand.
There were only 6 people in the entire theater on the second night after opening. The continued confusion for"'Atlas" novices, does not bode well for the reception of the final chapter.
It should have been made for HBO....,with several re-runs., giving ALL a chance to see and understand this complicated story.( Acting, Directing etc. good)
