Part two of Ayn Rand's groundbreaking novel comes to the screen in this thrilling and powerful drama. The global economy is on the brink of collapse. Brilliant creators, from artists to industrialists, continue to mysteriously disappear. Dagny Taggart, Vice President in Charge of Operations for Taggart Transcontinental, has discovered what may very well be the answer to a mounting energy crisis - a revolutionary motor that could seemingly power the World. But, the motor is dead... there is no one left to decipher its secret... and, someone is watching. It's a race against the clock to find the inventor before the motor of the World is stopped for good.

Haha Chad, good post. These movies are terrible adaptations of an awful book. But then that's what happens when ideology--propaganda really--is more important than a compelling narrative, realistic characters and other elements that make a consumer actually want to read/watch your story. The Fountainhead is a much better book that touches on some of the same elements but in a less didactic, and therefore more enjoyable, manner.
