Conclusion: '2010' is a movie simultaneously underrated and not nearly as good as it should have been. If you can try to divorce your expectations from any comparison to '2001: A Space Odyssey', it's a solid '80s sci-fi adventure. Unfortunately, it is a sequel to '2001', and on that mark utterly fails. The Blu-ray looks and sounds about as good as the movie can look or sound, and is worth a recommendation.
Conclusion: 2010: The Year We Make Contact is a thought-provoking and well-made science fiction film. The picture never tries to outclass or outdo its predecessor and creates a subtle and intricate world of its own. Warner has given the film a pleasing and film-like video encode that perfectly accompanies its once groundbreaking audio.
Excerpt: For many people, 2001 is one of those classic films like The Wizard of Oz that should never be remade and will never be equaled. Still, when author and sci-fi visionary Arthur C. Clarke decided to pick up his pen and write a sequel novel, everyone knew that a movie adaptation wasn’t far away.
