This review is from: Atlas Shrugged: Part One (DVD)
I watched the movie. I was going to see the second, but bought the book last week instead. Read through most of the part that pertains to this movie thus far. STarting again in a few minutes.
I was pretty happy with how the plot was followed. There are differences, of course. I thought the main characters worked well with the way the book portrayed them and the timeframe adaption with present day. I am glad the movie didn't have the history aspect of the characters. I felt the book over-emohasizes the the characters 'intelligence,' I personally thought it gets a bit old. I agree with a few other reviews in that the random 'Who is John Galt' disappearances should have been omitted from the movie, the name mentioned as it was in the book would have suited it just fine.
My favorite negative review: That the book should be a series of 1 hour episodes by chapter. ---Why, you ask? This probably hasn't happened to any book ever written. Excluding Where the Wild Things Are.
