Product Description

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.

It's rather frightening to what length government will go to control their vested interests. This film shows socialism when it has achieved full control of the masses and the nightmare that creates. As a wise person once stated : " Socialism is wonderful until you run out of other peoples money". Anyone that thinks it can't happen today has not been paying attention to current events. The only complaint re: this movie is that it seems to leave the viewer hanging at the end, like number 3 is in the making. I hope so because there are too many unanswered questions. Enjoyed it.

By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on April 6 2015
Format: DVD
The film suffers from attempting to make a modern adaptation of Ayn Rand's master piece. Part 2 does better than Part 1 as we now see the cell phones and computers in abundance. However, alternative energy seems nonexistent. Indeed with gas at $40.00 a gallon, Volts and Prius would be everywhere. Since plastic comes from petroleum, the use of plastic as a coffee cup lid would have ceased. But the film was made to show us that when all the world's best and brightest are taken away, Sean Hannity would be left behind and no one can fill the void of those wonderful job creators.

No matter which side of the political spectrum you are on the film agrees with both: The poor couldn't exist without the rich. Henry Rearden (Jason Beghe) is quite the despicable character to be the hero of libertarian capitalism. He makes amateur speeches similar to those made by tax protesters I knew in the 1980s...the ones who ended up in jail. His message is simple: Government is evil. Taxes are robbery. Tax money given to help everyone but himself, goes to looters. In this film capitalism has gotten so out of control, they force the hand of government to nationalize all business and created a sudden communistic society by executive order. Can't happen, but try to go with it.

There is a gross exaggeration of the battle between capitalism and socialism, as if the two can not coexist in one society, except it does exist that way in every society to one degree or another. However, they don't exist exclusively without each other. You hear the mantra of the barter system "True value for value." Hand me my barf bag.

The main problem I had with the film was not the exaggerated if not cartoonish view it took on economics, but the stiff cardboard characters who can't act. The directing, editing, and screen adaptation also left much to be desired. And yet, as bad as it was, it was an improvement over the first film.

Hope you watched part one before this.

You're going to have to read the book if you really want to know what this film is all about. There is no way to recap the story or the philosophy behind it in the short review. So I will have to assume that you either have read the book or intend to read it.

As with most book adaptations one could build a laundry list of what is missing. I personally was hoping for a period piece. However after viewing this presentation I realize that a period piece would be very clumsy and that they made the right decision by adapting it to a more up to date venue (the year 2016.) Then of course you have to choose the actors (differed from part one) and that must've been a monumental task.

Bottom line is this is as good as it's going to get. I actually found myself enjoying the film even with the anticipation of some story parts from the book and am looking forward to the last part III the Shangri-La scene. Atlas Shrugged Part III will be written by Duncan Scott and Brian O'Toole.

If you haven't read the book first though there are a lot of things that have been implied a few things that have been combined or dismissed so you will have to watch carefully to be able to figure out what the story line is and the reasoning behind the action.

If you're not inclined to read books that can help you set up taller at the table (approximately 336 pages) then be sure to look at the DVD extras as they will give you a better insight as to what the producers are trying to portray with the various scenes.

I find it hard to properly rate this film. I'm a bit biased because I'm glad the novel is actually being made into film at all, and that they're doing it in 3 films (as the book has 3 parts) instead of trying to condense it all into one.

I can't really compare it to Part 1 because Part 2 has a completely different cast of actors, etc. so continuity is skewed. I enjoyed both Parts 1 and 2, but Part 2 definitely has the bigger budget look (i.e. more CGI). I'm not sure which film I liked better. Many others have debated which is the better cast, director, etc. but I think there is some decent acting in both. However, after seeing the first film, it took me a while to adjust to the new cast. Upon second viewing, I was accepting of them.

Let's face it, it's a tough job to make all the details and depth of the novel fit into a film. People who've read the book will understand the story and characters better --- and will either hate the film by comparison to the book, or (like me) enjoy seeing how the book has now been turned into a film. People who have never read the book will probably not follow the plot well enough, and there's not really a lot of "action", so they may not like it.

As a film, it's had to be simplified a lot, and characters are very one-dimensional (as in most films). It looks more like a very good, high budget made-for-TV movie than a proper film release. There is far too much usage of "Who is John Galt?", as other reviewers have commented. I won't say anything about the story itself, so as not to give anything away.

I've heard mixed reviews on how the film did in theatres, mixed reviews by fans and critics, and that they lost a lot more money on Part 2. Personally, I'm looking forward to Part 3 being made. I'm curious to see how they'll end the film trilogy and how much continuity it will have from Part 2 --- will it be another new cast? Who knows.
