The movie adaptation of the Ayn Rand novel “Atlas Shrugged” debuts in theaters nationwide today — and the reviews have not been good, to put it mildly. But as film critic Roger Ebert noted on Twitter today, his one-star review was countered by four-star ratings of the film from readers — before most of them have presumably even had a chance to see it.
The film adaptation of “Atlas Shrugged” was years in the making, but it was ultimately produced in just 26 shooting days on a budget of less than $10 million. Though critics are panning it, its creators are banking on the book’s decades-long popularity and the current strength of the conservative movement to make the movie a success, according to the Wall Street Journal.
