Atlas Shrugged: Part 1

For more than 50 years, people in the publishing and film industries have maintained that it would be impossible to adapt Ayn Rand’s love song to an unfettered free market into a movie. Now that the film is out, it appears they may have been right. A dunderheaded script is the biggest black eye on Atlas Shrugged: Part I—yes, there are plans for two more films—and there are really no blue ribbons to give out. The acting is elementary; the visual conception is below lackluster; the impact of the legendary novel is impossible to detect. Although the film and Rand’s core beliefs are hot topics because they have been co-opted by the Tea Party, there is nothing here to suggest a revolution.
