Atlas Shrugged: Part 1

Those who have waited 60-odd years to see a film version of Ayn Rand's objectivist classic probably won't be satisfied by this cheapo adaptation of roughly a third of Rand's 1957 love letter to free-market capitalism. Paul Johansson (a castmember of The WB's "One Tree Hill," apparently) directs this tale of a powerful railroad executive (Taylor Schilling from NBC's short-lived "Mercy") who struggles to keep her business alive in the face of meddlesome government interference. This one was rushed into theaters in hopes of appealing to the Tea Party crowd, but the bargain basement production filled with never-heard-of-'em TV actors isn't likely to entice many folks to stick around for two more installments. If you want an Ayn Rand fix, go play Bioshock instead. FULL REVIEW: Compellingly awful adaptation argues the merits of capitalism by Devin D. O’Leary (4/21/2011). 102 minutes PG-13.
