By , Contributor
Though it struggled to find favor with critics (as well as moviegoers at cinemas), the epic big-screen adaptation of the popular Ayn Rand novel Atlas Shrugged is now complete. Released on Blu-ray and DVD by 20th Century Fox earlier in January, Atlast Shrugged Part III: Who is John Galt? marks the end of a journey begun with Part I in 2011. The third installment of the series (directed by J. James Manera, who co-scripted with Harmon Kaslow and John Agialoro), stars Laura Regan (Saving Jessica Lynch, Hollow Man 2) as Dagny Taggart and Kristoffer Polaha (Devil’s Knot) as John Galt.
