I approached AS Pt 2 curious to see how the new crop of actors would fit into the already established characters. I found that Mathis and Beghe did remarkably well to capture the level-headedness of Taggart and the take no prisoners attitude of Reardon. Hiring Esai Morales was inspired as he captured the happy-go-lucky, yet insightful, D'Anconia perfectly.
A small role that you might miss if not paying attention - Raymond Teller (of "Penn & Teller" with an actual speaking part!)
The somewhat non-linear opening of this portion of the story worked well to get things moving. But, as someone else pointed out, this portion of the story does not stand alone like other trilogy treatments of story lines. One must view the films in order, but that is not a fault of the production. All things considered the sophomore effort could have been flat. This effort has been consistent.

As a fan of Ayn Rand for more than forty years I couldn't wait for Atlas Shrugged II to be released. I watched it with my wife and when it was over I turned to her and said "what did you think, Dear?" She said "The jewelry was fantastic!" I promptly ordered up the Rearden Metal Bracelet and became a hero.

I took a bit to review, but I was shocked when it arrived a day before the actual official release date. I quickly popped it in and now all I can say is I'm waiting for part III. Thank you very much. These are wonderful films that deserve more of an audience particularly with how applicable they are to today.

Ayn Rand had the gift of prescience in showing, in Atlas Shrugged, the U.S.' political situation in 2013.

I bought 10 DVDs and handed them out to worthy minded people for their enjoyment. I had no idea how Objectivist Curious my friends and neighbors were until word got out that I was offering "free" Atlas Shrugged Part 2 DVDs to anyone who agreed to watch the movie. I quickly ran out of DVDs and am back to order more for those now hearing about the movie for the first time. There are so many distractions in the world today it seemed like the only way to ensure a person would actually watch the movie was to make it simple by providing them with a copy. That is what I am doing with the Atlas Shrugged Part 2 DVD; if a person agrees to watch the movie I hand them a DVD. I've had such a positive response from those who accepted the gift, with the recipients thanking me profusely and then telling me who they passed the DVD to after they watched it. The lady who works at the furniture store next door gave her DVD to her boss, who then took it down to San Pedro to give to his son. The man staying across the street at the Bed & Breakfast planned on giving the DVD to his mom after he and his wife watched it. My husband's co-worker gave his copy to his mother as well, because she was the one who first introduced him to Obejtivism. I am very grateful to the producers of this movie for taking on the very difficult task of translating this magnificent book into a movie and honoring the legacy of Ayn Rand.

Part II is compelling, and obviously Ayn Rand is a visionary to have perceived what could happen to our nation, and its people. Everyone should be exposed to this movie for it is an eye opener of what we are now in the process of experiencing through our nation's apathy and ignorance, plus lack of leadership and values in every department of the government.

Even with a cast change, the story line for Atlas Shrugged moved along very smoothly. The movie is very scary when compared to the current political climate of America. Hard to believe that Ayn Rand could see this coming 60 years before it did. Loved the movie and can't wait for Part III

While it is only a snapshot of the book, the message comes across well. Continuity with the Part I is damaged by the large number of cast members changed.

The II includes more special affects and a new cast that MAY be more professional. Actually I prefer the original case..... This did successfully cover a long era. The book includes page after page of "lectures" that I did not miss in the video. Enjoyed this and look forward to the III.

Atlas Shrugged Part II continued the the Atlas Shrugged saga. The change of actors for Part II improved the series.
Unfortunately, Part II does not stand well alone for anyone who has not viewed Part I. However, it stayed true in general to Ayn Rand's book.
The movie, as does the novel, depicts truths relevant for today. To discuss the plot would be contributing to the laziness of those who have not read Rand's work.
Here's hoping we do not have to wait too long for Atlas Shrugged Part III. My wife and I enjoyed the movie on Blue-Ray.
