Seriously, if this is the best promotion of itself that the free market can manage, it really would benefit from the help of a Ministry of Culture or something.
Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice  full review
 
Director John Putch struggles to find balance or generate a single spark from the clunky mix of romance, political diatribe and thriller.
Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
The producers are going to have to hire a better director if they want moviegoers to be curious enough about this Galt guy to buy a ticket for the presumptive third and final chapter.
Manohla Dargis, New York Times  full review
 
It's consistent with its predecessor as a somewhat awkward translation of Ayn Rand's 1957 novel to our current era, handled with bland telepic-style competency.
Dennis Harvey, Variety  full review
 
A disaster as a film, Atlas also is laughable in its presentation of Rand's ideology.
Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer  full review
 
If the novel Atlas Shrugged is ultimate libertarian porn, then the first two installments of the screen adaptation are soggy softcore.
Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter  full review
 
I didn't hate this movie. The first one was far worse -- mercifully, the cast and director have all been replaced.
Wesley Morris, Boston Globe  full review
 
"Atlas Shrugged: Part II" is political economy written with crayon.
Kyle Smith, New York Post  full review
 
Rather than refresh the cast with new actors, the producers would have done better to just digitally reanimate Patricia Neal and Gary Cooper, the stars of the 1949 adaptation of Rand's The Fountainhead.
