Critic Reviews of "Atlas Shrugged Part I"
Globe and MailOctober 28, 2011
Made on the cheap with no-name stars, this is no better than a stilted anachronistic curiosity, a low-rent version of the eighties' prime-time soap Dallas, with the industrial concerns and sexual mores of 1950s, all, somehow, set in 2016.
Toronto StarOctober 28, 2011
A talky bore that spends too much time in wood-panelled offices and at chatter-heavy parties that were clearly shot on the cheap.
New York TimesApril 28, 2011
Atlas Shrugged: Part I is in many ways charmingly oblivious to its inherent contradictions and the fact that its capitalist titans appear to be squatting in old, abandoned Dynasty sets, eating food-court baked potatoes.
L.A. WeeklyApril 20, 2011
Apart from its deficiencies as fiction, whatever its philosophical limitations (the rich and able should only help themselves in Rand's "Objectivism"), the book proves proudly indigestible on film.
New YorkerApril 18, 2011
This comically tasteless and flavorless adaptation of Ayn Rand's bombastic magnum opus delivers her simplistic nostrums with smug self-satisfaction.
AV ClubApril 16, 2011
The film is curiously sterile and lifeless, hardly the stuff of revolution. It feels more like an ideologically reversed Tucker: The Man And His Dream, written and performed by robots.
TikkunFebruary 28, 2016
The awfulness of Atlas Shrugged continues a trend, since the cinema has never treated Rand very well.
News & Observer (Raleigh, NC)October 17, 2014
Although it's not as bad as its trailer might suggest, this first part of a projected three-part series will probably please the already converted but bore and annoy just about everyone else.
We Got This CoveredApril 21, 2013
While staying true to Rand's vision, Atlas Shrugged: Part 1 suffers from poor directing and it lacks the sleekness it needs to connect with audiences.
Tribune News ServiceJanuary 09, 2013
An eye-rollingly clumsy amble through a Middle Earth of Monopolists -- aimed at Ayn Rand cultists and their fellow travelers
IGN DVDJanuary 29, 2012
Atlas Shrugged is a passionless experience that feels like a TV movie/miniseries. It's flat, poorly plotted, thinly performed and dull to its core
