    A very good exposition of the far-left attempting through centralized and overreaching bureaucrat control to thwart positive capitalist productivity and to usurp that productivity ostensibly for the "collective" good, but in reality for their own insidious power grab.

    Orion, as the token dissenter, utilizes the fallacy of argument known as:

    Argumentum ad Hominem (abusive and circ**stantial): the fallacy of attacking the character or circ**stances of an individual who is advancing a statement or an argument instead of trying to disprove the truth of the statement or the soundness of the argument. Often the argument is characterized simply as a personal attack.

    It is interesting to see the socialists' remarks here. The movie tells the truth and they want us to keep supporting them. Get a job Socialists !!

    Funny how you right winged fools select a work of PURE FICTION as some kind of talisman to thwart the scourge of "the liberal manifesto" as one contributer here states. Since there are absolutely no leaders coming from the "conservative" bunch, you should be scared and continue to grab at these pathetic straws.

    Great movie from beginning to end, it kept me on the edge of your seat..Part 2 will be the mother load..the acting was terrific. I will be buying the book because I can't wait for part 2....exciting and scary for the future of our country but, I think John Galt can save our country.

    Great movie. If you have a brain you wil definitely be made aware of how it applies to what is going on in America today.

    I was skeptical that a low-budget adaptation could capture the essence of the novel, but was pleasantly surprised. Despite the short running time, I found the movie developed the characters (in my opinion, the strength of Rand's novel; she took entire chapters to do it, and was the real reason the novel ran 1000 pages - not the long expositions, as critics contend) reasonably well. Here's the thing - your liberal-leaning friends will berate you for even thinking about seeing the movie, but they haven't seen it, they haven't read the book, and they don't know what it's about. If you're a person of independent thought - regardless of your preferred politics - you owe it to yourself to catch the film and form your own opinion. The movie really is a unique perspective on some of the most critical cultural issues of our time, and is decidedly NOT conservative (Rand was pro-choice, agnostic regarding big business per se, and encouraged the readers of her Ayn Rand Letter NOT to vote for Ronald Reagan for President).

    I liked the film and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. The movie stayed true to the novel, which is definitely not an easy task, considering that the book was written 50 years ago. The acting was great and there was a lot of unspoken dialogue and the actors were capable of portraying emotions and hidden messages without uttering a single word. Overall, the actors did a great job with very complicated characters and they made them relatable and believable. I loved the ending of the film and i must admit that it made me cry a little bit. Overall, it is a great film.

    True to the spirit of the book. Acting was fair to excellent; particularly good were the portrayals of Dagny Taggart and Hank Rearden. John Galt character needs improvement, specifically the voice; it needs to be strong, charismatic, and convincing. Considering the limitations (time and money) faced by the producers and everyone involved in the production, this movie is an excellent tribute to its author.

    11 years to write the book and 2 years to write the last chapter.. this is quite the endeavor to put it on the screen. But, I saw it and it works. This novel is also the second most influential book in our country according to a survey by the Library of Congress and the Book of the Month Club. I highly recommend seeing this movie and I look forward to see the next two in the series. See it!
