Atlas Shrugged: Part One Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Ayn Rand's timeless novel of rational self-interest comes to life for a new millennium.". The year is 2016, and America is on the verge of economic disaster. The greatest citizens are being targeted, and dark forces are working to bring about America’s final days. Our only hope for salvation lies with Dagny Taggart and Henry Rearden, rugged individualists whose bold ideas may have the power to spark a revolution and reclaim to the American Dream.

Review: Atlas Shrugged is the epic novel by complete lunatic Ayn Rand.   Clearly, I'm not a fan, lol.  Her ultra-conservative viewpoint of the world isn't something that I can see eye to eye with, but what I can concede is the facts here.  The book clearly has a huge following and has cult status, especially with politico-social nerds.  The film is very well made for a low budget feature and is only the first part of what is sure to be a great adaptation.  They've done a good job so far and I'm sure Rand fans will be pleased with this film.  You remember this one..its the one that Angelina Jolie was rumored to be attached to and backed out of.   That certainly would've given this one more steam, but perhaps the low key reception is better and more condusive to the rest of Rand's work.

The special features include: Theatrical Feature Blu-ray, Road to Atlas Shrugged, I Am John Galt
"The John Galt Theme" Slideshow and Commentary with John Aglialoro, Brian Patrick O'Toole and Harmon Kaslow.

Interest Range: Ayn Rand, Sci-Fi
