This movie is based on Ayn Rand's novel of the same title. It is about time someone made it. Her novel was very prophetic. The problems being caused by more liberal thinking are so inset in our society, now, that they would be difficult or impossible to eradicate. What amazes me is how little exposure this movie had. It is obviously being squashed by the liberal media. I didn't even know it was out there to be watched until I saw it rated in a magazine - poorly, of course. The movie is not poor. It is probably as good a production as could be made without detailed explanations of Ayn Rand's philosophy. Even then, certain sections of the movie come across as pure selfishness at first. For example, Dagny's brother is shocked when he finds Dagny has eliminated all but two lines in Mexico. He says the Mexicans need transportation, too. You would have to think twice to understand that Cosmic Justice just doesn't work that way.
