Railroad owner Dagny Taggart and steel mogul Henry Rearden search desperately for the inventor of a revolutionary motor as the U.S. government continues to spread its control over the national economy.

Approaching collapse, the nation's economy is quickly eroding. As crime and fear take over the countryside, the government continues to exert its brutal force against the nation's most productive who are mysteriously vanishing - leaving behind a wake of despair. One man has the answer. One woman stands in his way. Some will stop at nothing to control him. Others will stop at nothing to save him. He swore by his life. They swore to find him.

The container ship seen seemingly sinking in the opening monologue, is that of the MV Rena, which ran aground on the Astrolabe Reef off the coast of New Zealand's North Island in 2011, due to the ships course being altered. The ship subsequently tilted to starboard, and split in two, by this time, most of the containers aft of the split (two thirds of the ship) had been removed, or lost at sea. The aft two thirds of the ship, after being emptied, sheared off of the front section, due to tides and bad weather, then sunk beneath the surface, the front section's containers were removed, and then the rest of the ship was cut into sections to be removed by salvage.

When i thought that Part II was worse than Part I, Part III went one step further. With another change in the cast, it's been difficult again to follow what's been going on.
With the ideas of Ayn Rand diluted in sub-par writing and below average acting, Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt? became a perfect background for an afternoon nap. No pun intended.
Once again, i'm not sure why the producers insisted on making three movies instead of opting for a TV show. Nowadays this seems to be a gateway to a broader audience. Besides, the book Atlas Shrugged had enough contents and ideas for eight to ten one-hour episodes.
