On Par With The Old Laserdisc

Cryptkeeper, Warner Bros
12 November 2013
  • Summary: Bare-bones Blu Ray with no special features. Picture and sound quality about the same as my old Laserdisc. No reason to buy this if you already have the DVD.
  • Pros: Engaging Characters, Excellent Acting

Excellent sci-fi... give it a chance!

  • Summary: This is an excellent SCIENCE-fiction film. It carries on the story introduced in Kubrick's "2001", and ties up many loose ends and clarifies what happened in the first film. The effects are excellent even by today's standards, the acting is believable, the characters are well-developed, its pacing...

This film deserves more attention.

  • Summary: I looked this film up before renting it since I had never seen it. The comments I saw for a review saying it was boring as the original (first one) and ..."uninvolving"? This movie blew me away, I really thought it was great. This is NOT an action movie and for that matter neither was "2001".

In the future, there are no lightbulbs

  • Summary: I wondered that when the interior of the Leonov (CCCP ship) was so freegin' dim. Or maybe the Ruskies were trying to save power by keeping all of the lights off! That really piqued my curiosity... On the whole, 2010 is an above average, yet not superior movie.

Actually, it's very good!

  • Summary: Of course it comes nowhere close to the brilliance of "2001: A Space Odyssey", but I don't think that ever was the makers intension. I believe that "2010" was made to tie up the loose ends and answer some of the questions that "2001: A Space Odyssey" left.

Watch this movie if you want to understand the previous one a little bit better

The Godfather (ken_vandenbussche), IMDb
27 January 2002
  • Summary: I never knew a sequel was made of "2001: A space odyssey" until a few months ago. When I finally had watched this film, I understood why. "2010" is anything but a bad movie, but it doesn't offer the same remarkable innovation its predecessor did.

Fine film.

Kane III, IMDb
14 June 2000
  • Summary: The reactions to this film sum up a problem of perception that many film buffs seem to have. To such people, Kubrick was a genius. Kubrick made 2001. 2001 is a *Kubrick* story. Therefore 2010 is by definition a presumptuous attempt to explain what Kubrick deliberately left unsaid. etc. etc.

A much different movie than the first one.

Tim-294, IMDb
16 November 1999
  • Summary: The first movie in the series, 2001, was a very artistic piece that had only moments of dialogue in its more than two hours of film. 2010 appears nearly apologetic in comparison, explicating somewhat excruciatingly every nuance of the plot through the main character's supposed messages back to...

A superb piece of film-making

Robert Wilson (recoil@globalnet.co.uk), IMDb
8 August 1999
  • Summary: When I saw 2001, I thought how brilliant a piece of film it turned out to be. Many people could not understand the meaning of the Monolith, but its meaning became clear in this sequal 2010. The acting is first rate throughout, with superb casting and Roy Scheider in one of his best films since Jaws.

Been there, done that, didn't need the book.

Jim Trascapoulos, IMDb
27 June 1999
  • Summary: It's definitely a division maker, a film that splits it's viewers down the middle. If you're a 2001 fan then you'll hate it - the sense of mystery and discovery is lost as events and motivations are layed-out and explained every step of the way.
