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

Very decent release of a good movie

  • Excerpt: This movie cannot be compared to the metaphysical experience that was 2001: A Space Odyssey and therefore it's often too much overshadowed, for this is a pretty good movie in its own right. PQ is decent enough with special effects limitations unfortunately showing up even more clearly, but at least it stays true to its grainy source. Audio is nothing spectacular, but serviceable and extra's can be ignored. Recommended for fans of the movie.

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 is tight, and its plot is well-executed. Finally, this is TRUE science-fiction, not space-opera, and I wish more movies were like this.

Unappreciated Classic

  • Excerpt: 2001 was an epic film and stands alone even today. 2010 is nothing like the first, but don't let that fool you! It's a great film that most people diss because it wasn't like 2001. But I'm glad it wasn't...we needed answers! And this film works well visually, with good acting and a good story. After such an awful DVD release (I swear it wasn't much better than my old VHS copy!) I was DYING for this to come out on Blu-ray. Visually, it is A LOT better.

"MY GOD, IT'S FULL OF STARS"

  • Excerpt: Reading some of the reviews on here that have the PQ as 1 are extremely harsh to say the least.. Firstly lets talk about the PQ, This transfer reminds me alot of the Close Encounters Blu release..It's nowhere perfect but it's an amazing upgrade on the shabby original std DVD release...There are many imperfections on this release but on the whole the transfer is extremely satisfying..Fans of the film will be very satisfied with this release..

So what's going to happen...Something Wonderful

  • Excerpt: 2010 succeeds on it's own merrits because it is a straight up sci-fiction flick. It's plot does not weigh you down like Kubrick's 2001. It would be interesting to see if both 2001 & 2010 would ever get remade and the other two books 2064: Odyssey Three and 3001: The Final Odyssey were turned into film and hence we would have a more complete story on film. This blu edition is a mixed bag of good & pour PQ as well as AQ.

Une édition qui ne s'en sort pas si mal

Thomas22360, blu-ray.com
25 April 2009
  • Excerpt: On pouvait craindre le pire venant de la Warner est de ses vieux films fond de catalogue autre que ses grands classiques. L'image est vraiment belle avec un léger grain qui a son charme, l'image est bien détaillée et les FX s'en sortent plutôt bien. Pour le son idem, la différence est flagrante entre le DD et le True HD : plus puissant, plus clair, plus envoutant.

A treasure all its own

BDAcolyte, blu-ray.com

  • Excerpt: A respectable issue for an effects-laden picture some 25 years old now. Fine video transfer, and at times even better audio (the scene where Discovery fires her engines has been a literally jump-out-your-seat moment for friends I've shown this to). I know some of the effects were off, but I'd blame that on the film's age and the matte-line techniques of the day.

  • Excerpt: PQ and AQ are a big upgrade from the atrocious standard dvd disc. PQ is not consistantly sharp, but all the FX scenes look excellent. Very happy to report, that the PQ is much cleaner looking than the dvd version. AQ is good, but won't blow your socks off. For fans of the film it's worthy of a buy.

A worthy sequel to 2001: A Space Odyssey

Yeha-Noha, blu-ray.com
9 April 2009
  • Excerpt: 2010 stands on it's own. The screenplay is exemplary. The production, engineering, and set design are phenomenal. The production crew even reconstructed the Discovery model based on images from the 70 mm film, 2001:ASO. The video quality was passable but nothing to rave about, the usual WB mediocre transfer. I still enjoyed the movie immensely though. The video was far better than what I had seen on the DVD release.
