As they were for the previous installment (Atlas Shrugged II: The Strike), all of the roles in this movie have again been recast. Instead of Taylor Schilling or Samantha Mathis, Dagny Taggart is now played by Laura Regan; instead of Jsu Garcia or Esai Morales, Francisco D'Anconia is now played by Joaquim de Almeida; instead of Grant Bowler or Jason Beghe, Henry Rearden is now played by Rob Morrow; etc. See more »

This entire series is awful. It is as bland as baloney on white bread without any mayo. The actors are like zombies, the director doesn't have a clue, the storyline is convoluted, and the capitalist philosophy borders on the hilarious. The film also grossly exaggerates the possible impact of socialism in the United States as well. Hello! Bullet Trains in China travel at 300 MPH, why would anyone get excited over trains that travel over 100 MPH?
The new engine idea comes from a GM prototype invented in 1974 by Frank Guida, a super-cleaned coal dust which reduced harmful emissions by 600% and increased fuel efficiency by over 400%, but was never used by the company (one of the reasons they are always lagging behind the competition).
But this is about the three TV episodes; I really wouldn't classify them as movies. They are box office poison, as evidenced by the minute sales of their showings. The production values are about the only thing to praise in the film, but that is not nearly enough to rescue this string of turkeys. Save your time and money and take out the book from the library.
