As they were for the previous installment (Atlas Shrugged II: The Strike (2012)), all of the roles in this movie have again been re-cast. 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, and so on. See more »


Vehicles in the strikers' valley all bear vehicle registration plates. Although folks who have abandoned "regulated society" would hardly be paying fees to keep their vehicles registered, it would be unnecessary to remove the plate. See more »

Complete let down
10 September 2015 | by profff-01020See all my reviews

This movie is terrible. I've read the book and this is not a representation of it. This movie is a let down on every front. The story line is scabbed together. The cinematography is terrible. Acting is less than second rate. Cohesion sucks. There is less climax in this movie than there is in a retirement home. What's with the music in the movie? Every transition scene has this grandiose symphony playing, making it seem like there is a plot point or twist coming up.

I suffered through this junk because I had a fast forward button. Which is sad since I thought the first movie in this series was pretty well done. Then the second movie sucked. The third movie (this one) was so exponentially terrible compared to the first two that scientists are still trying to come up with a logarithmic formula to accurately represent the decaying quality from the first to third movies.

Watch the first movie and accept that it never goes anywhere. Don't watch this.
