About the Movie
This third and final film completes the epic trilogy adapted from the novel by Ayn Rand. After the disappearances of society's most productive individuals, the nation’s economy is on the verge of collapse. As the government pursues even more brutal policies, Dagny Taggart must choose between saving the nation’s infrastructure or the man she loves—the man who would stop the motor of the world.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The prior installments weren't very good movies, and it should surprise few that this last one is the worst of the lot.
Rotten: A missed opportunity to speak to anyone other than the converted, but at least as the culmination of its makers' will.
Rotten: Rand's parable is meant to showcase just how much our world needs the best of us, but this adaptation only does so accidentally -- by revealing what movies would be like if none of the best of us worked on them.
Rotten: We get it, we get it: Capitalism is good, government is bad. But "Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt?" is worse.
As a huge Rand fan, this third movie was really low budget. Some of the actors were alright, but seriously you're going to change the entire cast for EVERY movie? I hope that the point of Objectivism is not lost in a movie that was a disappointing finish to what had been a good trilogy.
Great message, but Part 3 was lacking in some ways
The movie has a great message, but the final installment of this trilogy was somewhat lacking. There weren't enough scenes with civil unrest, transportation and industrial accidents, and epic infrastructure collapses, which really could've added to the excitement and drama. Part 3 didn't hardly show Hank Reardon, and totally omits the part when he leaves his family behind and goes Galt. The timing of the love-making scene between John and Dagny was really awkward and didn't seem that romantic. And finally, the ending happened much too quickly and leaves the viewer saying, "That's it?"
On the bright side, though, I thought John Galt's Speech (i.e., the climax of the entire novel) was very well cut for the movie and flowed decently with the scenes in the film.
All in all, this was good for renting, but not for keeping.
Just don’t watch or spend any money at all to see it. Worst movie I have ever seen. This insults the book.
