Atlas Shrugged: Part I(2011)

Excessively talkie-talkie and very boring. The two worlds the filmmakers have tried to "marry" don't really go together. The characters in the film are all sexually-repressed better-than-thou's who go from dinner party to dinner party lamenting less money and no fun in the bedroom. The cast is comprised of unknowns as anybody with any sense steered clear of the subject matter at this point in history. The film is set in 2016 which makes the film make even less sense because we have NO competing railroads as is ... "some" are against high speed rails but in this film it is presented as if it is their brainchild. The film is impersonal and cold ... and there isn't a sympathetic character in the bunch. It just isn't any good.
