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.
Summary: Stanley Kubrick's landmark film, 2001: A Space Odyssey , remains one of the most heralded films of all time. It's groundbreaking special effects, abstract storytelling, lush score and vivid 70mm photography set new standards in filmmaking upon its release in 1968. Kubrick's collaborator on the film, legendary science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke, went on to write a number of sequels to the film and his accompanying novel.
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.
