Out of the three videos, Part II was the best, however, even that fizzled. No one seems to understand that Ayn Rand had a philosophy which she shared via characters' actions in her novels. You really have to read the books to even remotely get what she is trying to convey. You can't do it in a movie because there is no existing ensemble who could pull it off in a way that doesn't sound cheezy or full of propaganda. Worse, particularly in part 3, they sound like a bunch of clowns. I burst out laughing at the words they had to say in order to open a safe/door. I'm pretty sure every woman has uttered those words at least once in her life. Ayn Rand had a lot of interesting points of view but if she were alive, I'd challenge her on a number of issues. I knew what was going on in the three movies but anyone out there who hadn't read the book was probably thinking the writers, producers and actors were on LSD.

Although the first two films were dramatically entertaining, this final one abruptly flipped into a comic book soap opera.
In a novel's universe, the writer has god-like powers to manipulate characters and events. In this case, the film's political message came across as blatant propaganda.

Ayn Rand's plots are laughable.

“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

I love this from the description [and dreadful book]: /// of society's most-productive individuals \\\ - - right! Ask the typical Ayn Randyian, or other aliterate American, who Nikola Tesla, Philo Farnsworth, Edwin Armstrong, John Wanamaker, Dr. Semmelweiss, Chester Gould, Gary Starkweather or John Warnock were and are, and you'd most likely get blank stares!!!!!

This garbage is the worst film I have ever seen.

The budget must have been lower than snake excrement. The ceaseless cheesy background sound-score was nauseating and insipid. Any actor desperate enough to take this dreck on is on their last legs.

The previous two 'Shruggies weren't half bad...but this one stank to high heaven. Whew!

I only watched this because I had seen the other 2. It's very similar to the last one in that it's oversimplified objectivism but this time it's packaged in a Hallmark/Lifetime style script read by soap opera actors. Oh, and Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity are shown as the voices of reason... This whole series has had many problems if you could even call it a series. None of the same actors, writers, or directors participate in all 3 movies. Makes me wonder how these even got made. I'm sure there's a story there. A better story. Really, whether you agree with the philosophy or not I think we can all agree this is an awful end to the trilogy.

Bad, bad, bad. The climax to the question who is " John Galt "? The answer is- some Fox news rhetoric spouting- right wing lamo. I'm glad I didn't read the book, but these three films are basically a waste of time. they do produce a few untintentional guffaws, but that's about it.
