It lights up your screen with explosions, political intrigue, plane crashes and high drama. Add to it the discovery of a world changing source of energy; makes this a movie you can’t miss. The trailer also has the fingerprints of veteran movie producer Harmon Kaslow all over it.
The movie opened nationwide Friday and is based on the huge bestseller written over 50 years ago by Russian emigrant Ayn Rand. Her experience living under a totalitarian regime, lead her to pen a futuristic novel, based on what could happen to our country if conditions lined up, when “Looters Law” was the driving force behind government policy.
Her book has served as a waning to those who believe in capitalism and self responsibility. It has helped shape the political philosophy of many on the right. Even though written years ago, many of the authors’ predictions of a totalitarian society seem to be taking shape, with government in control of key industries, picking winners and losers...And a looters law mentality creeping into the campaign rhetoric of "getting a fair shot."
