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. full review

Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice

Director John Putch struggles to find balance or generate a single spark from the clunky mix of romance, political diatribe and thriller. full review

Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times

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. full review

Manohla Dargis, New York Times

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. full review

Dennis Harvey, Variety

A disaster as a film, Atlas also is laughable in its presentation of Rand's ideology. full review

Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer

If the novel Atlas Shrugged is ultimate libertarian porn, then the first two installments of the screen adaptation are soggy softcore. full review

Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter

The people behind the Atlas Shrugged series of films have things they want to tell you, and just to make sure that you know what they are, the movies tell you, and tell you, and then tell you again. full review

Alonso Duralde, The Wrap

I didn't hate this movie. The first one was far worse -- mercifully, the cast and director have all been replaced. full review

Wesley Morris, Boston Globe

"Atlas Shrugged: Part II" is political economy written with crayon. full review

Kyle Smith, New York Post

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. full review
