I liked the old cast better, but part 2's script and directing more than made up for it.

I thought it was much better than part1, more action and easier to follow. Lots of clever hidden messages make it fun to watch a second time. Overall a very good interpretation of one of the greatest books ever written. 4 stars, 5th is to cancel out idiot libs who can't keep politics out of reviews!

Not a movie for everybody. I can hardly wait for the third part.

I really enjoyed Part 2, despite the complete recast. Missed the music and cinematography of Part 1, though.

Everything about it screams mid-20th century. Rather than refresh the cast with new actors, the producers would have done better to just digitally reanimate Patricia Neal and Gary Cooper, the stars of the 1949 adaptation of Rand's "The Fountainhead." Full Review
Has a whole new director, cast and crew, with slightly higher production polish and more familiar faces onscreen. Nonetheless, it's consistent with its predecessor as a somewhat awkward translation of Ayn Rand's 1957 novel to our current era, handled with bland telepic-style competency. Full Review

Even if you overlooked the production values from a 1986 porno and special effects like something your nephew cooked up on his Mac, the movie's "Yay, money!" zingers are just a big bag of sad. Full Review

The producers are going to have to hire a better director if they want moviegoers to be curious enough about this Galt guy to buy a ticket for the presumptive third and final chapter. Full Review
Atlas won't be the only one to shrug off this tiresome load. Full Review
