Report Movie Critic R. Ebert Gives Atlas Shrugged 1 Star in Movies, Shows, and Theatre Posted April 15, 2011 Disclaimer: I haven't seen the movie yet; I'm planning to this weekend Wow, I thought you guys were exaggerating about Ebert's review, but after reading it, I'd have to agree. Either the movie does a really crappy job of laying out its theme, or Ebert just missed it. The review doesn't even tell what the movie is about, at least from the perspective of someone who's read the book. He makes it sound like the movie is about railroad entrepreneurs and the government that hates them. I know that flippancy sells, but in my opinion he did a horrible job as a reviewer.
