The book is great; this movie adaptation is faithful to the book, well actied and very appropos for the day. The directors said that the \"critics\" panned the movie, and were opposed to it. In CA, that would be an understatement. Those interested in individual freedom will see the timely message and warning given future generations, all generations, by Ms. Rand.

Phenomenal! I enjoyed the movie so much I immediately bought the book. I related to the movie and the book.

The latest example is the healthcare program?more big government clumsily trying to run a business. The government needs to teach people to fish instead of giving

Atlas Shrugged: Part 1 is nearly as stilted, didactic and simplistic as Rand's free-market fable. Full Review
The acting is so poor and the story so badly told that the viewer's feelings about Rand's novel - an epic ode to free-market fundamentalism - are almost immaterial. Full Review
Speechy and preachy and just a teeny-weeny bit naughty. Full Review

I wanted to give this movie a fair shake, though I can't pretend to be an admirer of Ayn Rand's writing. But the movie, the first installment of a projected trilogy, doesn't give the book a fair shake. Full Review
New York Post
Though a bit stiff in the joints and acted by an undistinguished cast amid TV-movie trappings, this low-budget adaptation of Ayn Rand's novel nevertheless contains a fire and a fury that makes it more compelling than the average mass-produced studio item. Full Review
