Editorial Reviews

Part two of Ayn Rand’s groundbreaking novel comes to the screen in this thrilling and powerful drama. The global economy is on the brink of collapse. Brilliant creators, from artists to industrialists, continue to mysteriously disappear. Dagny Taggart, Vice President in Charge of Operations for Taggart Transcontinental, has discovered what may very well be the answer to a mounting energy crisis - a revolutionary motor that could seemingly power the World. But, the motor is dead... there is no one left to decipher its secret... and, someone is watching. It's a race against the clock to find the inventor before the motor of the World is stopped for good.

The acting is good to very good.
D. T. Jewett
I'll watch the next movie in this series, because after wasting over three hours with the first two, I want to see the conclusion.
BD King
I read the book and this is a good adaptation (three movies to film the book)!

This is Part 2 of the Atlas Shrugged series; and it's a powerful continuation of Atlas Shrugged Part 1. I viewed this when it was released into theatres.

This part depicts the United States' further decline into the depths of economic despair. And it shows how increasing government oppression causes the decline to accelerate, even as more and more producers and innovators disappear from industry.

The acting is good to very good. Samantha Mathis brings a more dynamic range of acting skills to Dagny Taggert. Jason Beghe is first rate in his role as Hank Rearden, and Esai Morales is exceptional in his role as Francisco d'Anconia. In fact, I must say that these three are much better suited to their roles, especially at this point in the story. For example, Hank Readen's speech before the court was much more forceful, I think, than if it were rendered by Grant Bowler.

The camera work, computer graphics, scripting, and cinematography are all first rate.

There's nothing that comes close to this story. It is an in-your-face depiction of liberty vs. tyranny, and how an overbearing government impoverishes, and then destroys everyone. I guarantee you'll either love it or hate it, but you won't be neutral.

True to form, the critics bestowed even more hate than they did on Part 1. And yet, the audience seemed to enjoy this even more - for at the film's ending, they stood and applauded! And cheered!

This is a great film and a great story. I highly recommend it.

Ayn Rand must be rolling over in her grave. As readers of Atlas Shrugged know, one of Ayn Rand's sacred words is "competence": she accords it the reverence that a Jesuit reserves for the word "chastity". Her villains aren't merely evil: they're morons who'd have trouble running an elevator. So it's a cruel irony that Atlas Shrugged is being so thoroughly botched.

The origins of this disaster go back some 20 years. In 1992, producer John Aglialoro paid $1 million for an 18-year option on the film rights to Atlas Shrugged. The outlook seemed promising, with big names like Charlize Theron and Anne Hathaway being considered for the lead role. But first a contract with Turner Network Television fell through; then another with Lions Gate Entertainment. Meanwhile the years were ticking by.

Suddenly, it was 2010 with rights on Atlas due to expire on June 15 of that year. Aglialoro made the fateful decision to press on. The screenplay was still being written in May; Director Stephen Polk was dropped at the start of June, with Paul Johansson picked as a replacement. Shooting of Atlas Shrugged Part I began June 13 - two days before the option was to expire - with a Director who had been on the job for two weeks. The whole project has never recovered from that initial panic-stricken rush to beat the expiry deadline.

Predictably, Atlas Shrugged Part I was a pretty shambolic effort: what else could you expect with zero time for planning or reconsideration? But most fatally, none of the actors had been contractually bound to perform in the next two installments. So when the first part bombed, all the actors took their leave. And it turned out that Atlas Shrugged II would need a new Director, as well as a new script writer.

I went to see Atlas Shrugged, Part 2, at one of my local theaters the day of its first showing. The film is a pretty accurate reflection of the direction our Nation is taking. Little wonder that the movie makes Hollywood critics and D.C. politicians uncomfortable. The film reveals what they really are and what they are about. The characters are believable, the acting is supurb, and the plot ties into current events very well. I'm looking forward to Part 3.

If you read the book, you will fully understand the film. Many things happen in the film so quickly that only by having already read the book did I fully understand every scene in the film. Read the book and you will rate this movie a 5 star

Theres much more to this story - it left me feeling as if there will be a part 3 and 4. The main charectors were left handing, and hanging and hanging.

After waiting for this after seeing the first one it was a bit of a let down. The original was exciting, suspenseful, the acting was good and we couldn't wait for this 2nd part to come out. As, I guess, in many sequels it just didn't stand up to the first.

Two years ago, "Atlas Shrugged: Part One" exploded onto the Shruggalo scene. "Atlas Shrugged Part II: Rise of the Shruggalos" continues the story of Violent JT and Dagny 2 Dope as the government's newly enacted "Fair Share" law has forced businesses to sell to all buyers, leading to intense dissatisfaction amongst the commercial elite and transforming a once-vibrant economy into a dark carnival of industrial stagnation. Tycoons begin to vanish, leaving behind only the question "Who is Juggagalt?" 2 Dope & JT criss-cross the country, searching for answers in the disappearances of America's big money rustlas.

2 Dope and former business partner Raw Stank are charged under the new law. At trial, Raw Stank defends the pursuit of profit and is given only a token penalty. However, Sheriff Sugar Wolf announces "Directive 10-289", which freezes employment and production, requiring all patent rights to be gifted to the government. Bureaucrat Dusty Poot blackmails Mud Bug into giving up his Mud Bug Metal patents, using photos of Mud Bug and 2 Dope that would damage 2 Dope's reputation.

Dagny 2 Dope leaves her post at the railroad when her prized Juggagalt line is disassembled due to lack of business. During her absence, a Greez-E Transcontinental train collides with a military train in a tunnel, due largely to political pressure by a passenger and to human error by 2 Dope's poorly-trained replacement. This impels 2 Dope back to her job. Rhyme Doctor Grizzly Wolf tries to dissuade her from returning, as he had earlier tried to talk Mud Bug into leaving his business, but she returns anyway.

2 Dope takes a train to Colorado to show her faith in the railway, but its engine fails.

Stalin would be so proud of you five star reviewers!
It's a pretty bad film outside of the sentiments expressed in the poorly written original "novel" by AR.

By the way Jnagarya, I read your comment on my review of the "Beatles Captial Albums" and, according to Lewishon's documentation Martin began mixing albums for stereo... Read More
