Doesn’t Live Up To Part 1, But Does Pull You In To See The Rest
Just saw the film, and was disappointed that the original cast wasn’t involved. The 2 lead characters, Dabney and Henry, don’t have the same appeal or chemistry as the leads in part 1. The film seemed very uneven, and didn’t flow well enough to engage the audience, but the thematic material was so relevant to what is going on in America today, that I’m sure every audience member was angered at what was a very clear representation of the destruction of America, as we’ve known it, which is in progress today, because of the 99%ers. This film is ultra relevant, and should be seen by as many people as possible, just like “2016, Obama’s America”. People have got to start acknowledging that socialism is destructive, de-motivating and only a cover up for an “elite” group who will have total control of everything and everyone. See the film, for the message. In that context, it’s very powerful.
A good follow-up. Bring on Part III.
The second of the franchise, Atlas Shrugged II: The Strike continues Ayn Rand’s epic telling of a dystopian near-future. A near complete recasting occurred between parts I and II, notably Samantha Mathis replaces Taylor Schilling as Dagny Taggart and Jason Beghe replaces Grant Bowler as Dagny’s love interest and metal magnate, Henry Reardon. Several other well-known faces appear in Part II, including Paul McCrane, Robert Picardo, Richard T. Jones, Diedrich Bader, Ray Wise, Arye Gross, John Rubinstein, and Rex Linn. Maybe you don’t recognize all those names, but you’ll likely recognize their faces. Mathis gives us a more human Dagny, pushing aside the aristocratic ice queen performance of Shilling in Part I. The only complaint about Mathis’s portrayal are those damned false eyelashes. They are glaring and seem very out of character for this captain of industry. Jason Beghe shines as a no-nonsense, driven Rearden. Esai Morales delivers an easy, believable performance as philosophical muse, Francisco d’Anconia. Richard T. Jones replaces Jsu Garcia as Dagney’s right-hand man, Eddie Willers. Jones gives an effortless, natural performance that makes it shame that he isn’t featured more prominently. ER’s Paul McCrane, as Wesley Mouch, and John Rubenstein, as Dr. Ferris, give very capable performances as government villains, and Rex Linn gives a spot on performance as pompous Senator Kip Chalmers. The only performance that fell short was Patrick Fabian’s portrayal of James Taggart. His performance was just a bit too labile, bordering on buffoonery at times. Taggart becomes caricature in Part II, replacing the capable but misguided Taggart of Part I.
Atlas Shrugged II picks up at the beginning of Rearden Metal’s success that was received its baptism of fire on The John Galt Line of Taggart Transcontinental’s rail network. Speaking of fire, Ellis Wyatt has set his oil field on fire and disappeared. Ken Danagger, Dagny Taggart, and Reardon continue to overcome increasing government interference and excel in their respective industries. The economy, overall, cannot overcome the drag of cronyism flexing its regulatory muscle and sinks deeper and deeper into morass. Government reaches its acme and the economy its nadir when Directive 10-289, a government takeover of every aspect of the economy, is enacted by fiat. Part II ends on this low note as Dagny aerially chases Quentin Daniels to Galt’s Gulch. Dagny crashes her plane and awakes to the helping hand of John Galt.
Atlas Shrugged Part II should be enjoyable by anyone familiar with Rand’s seminal work. People who haven’t read the lengthy or its Cliff Notes might be a little lost as the movie skims over some important events. This isn’t meant as a criticism; the novel is almost 1200 pages of philosophical presentation. The time in a theatrical film is a scarce resource. The producers and director had to allocate it wisely.
