At least it's just the teaser. But you're right. It should show at least a few seconds of the actual movie.

The trailer for Atlas Shrugged Part II is here and... dear God! There's literally no footage from the movie, instead showing several Fox News windbags talking about her and an interview with her from 1959. Could this dethrone The Devil Inside for worst movie of the year? LINK: http://www.avclub.com/articles/atlas-shrugged-part-ii,81767/

Atlas Shrugged Part II probably will be a hoot to watch -- but I'd wager that only half a dozen of us are even going to see it. Even if we managed to get it elected Worst Picture, most of America is going to say, "They actually made Part 2?"

I'm kind of looking forward to Atlas Shrugged Part II. The part they're adapting with this movie has all the wacky sh*t that the book's known for! We'll be in Razzie heaven!

And I think you're giving the people responsible way too much credit. The film is supposed to be released just prior to November election in hopes that it might influence the outcome in some fashion. In reality, the 3 or 4 thousand people that might actually cough up the cash to see it were all going to vote Republican anyway.

This was terrible to the point of being unwatchable, which will ultimately doom any chance it stood of taking home the Razzie Worst Picture trophy. Almost no one saw it, and few of those who even tried made it clear through to the closing credits...

One of the most poorly reviewed films of the year, this film lacks the production values of a graduate thesis. The fact that the movie failed miserably artistically,  is underscored by the fact that it was a piece of fluff propaganda celebrating laissez-faire serve-the-self Capitalism that failed miserably in the free markets.

This is a film that is totally incomprehensible to anyone who doesn't belong to the cult of Ayn Rand. Hands down my vote for the most embarassing example of film making last year.

Oh, right!LOL Well, after that scene, Johansson went to the ocean and fought the waves while yelling at God

It may sound silly, but his acting made it a serious scene for me.

Really? Well, I think Johansson is excellent on the show... as an actor. As a director, he does nothing special, so I'll believe you.

Ah, what a seriosuly bad movie!  
 
The good:  
 
The end is pretty funny: Too bad it wasn't supposed to be! Seriously, it ends with Dagny shouting one of the most hilarious no's in film history.  
 
The bad:  
 
Taylor Schilling: Schilling may be hot, but she can't act. She plays Dagny, a railroad executive with a stupid name.
 
Grant Bowler: Bowler plays Hank Reardon, an inventer who invents a new type of metal that's imaginatively called Reardon Metal. He plans to use it for railroads and if this description seems boring, that's because Reardon is boring and Bowler failed to make him interesting.
 
Matthew Marsden: Marsden plays Dagny's brother James. He's a lazy bum who doesn't want to run his railroad company, so he dumps the work off on Dagny. Marsden can't act and the script does him no favors.
 
The ugly:  
 
Paul Johansson: Johansson is the director of this God forsaken mess. He, also, plays John Galt in a very brief cameo. He's mostly known for his role on One Tree Hill and if you're a One Tree Hill vet, you shouldn't be directing a movie.
 
The script: Much like Twatlight, most of the problems in this stem from terrible source material. Screenwriters Brian Patrick O'Toole and John Aglialoro don't helo though.
 
The pointlessness: If I said that this movie was 97 minutes of people talking with each other, that would not be an exageration. Trying to turn Atlas Shrugged into a trilogy was a massive disaster. Why not just make one big movie and just cut out the pointless sh*t? I know they couldn't do this with The Fountainhead because Ayn Rand was still alive and would bitch about it, but she's six feet under now. You can cut out extraneous material, I'm pretty sure Rand won't rise from the dead.
 
In all honesty, this probably the worst movie of the year that actually tried to be good. 

Grade: F

Shouldn't market forces be permitted to resolve the situation, rather than something as "socialist" as a product recall?  Wink
