ATLAS SHRUGGED II: THE STRIKE (2012 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Atlas Shrugged II: the Strike, unlike its prequel, struggles for its story and within that scrambling becomes a run-of-the-mill movie. The single driving factor is the leading question, “Who is John Galt?”, which does not have enough intellectual power to make one care. The movie seems slightly reminiscent of V For Vendetta or Equilibrium plotlines where government becomes so overly involved in personal lives and business that life takes on a surreal aspect.

Storyline

High level corporate owners and scientists begin random disappearance.

Yes. This is a worth watching movie if only to build appreciation for the leaders and innovators who drive economies.
