Excerpt: 2010 is a great sci-fi film. It stands on it's own and as a sequel to 2001. I find the PQ to be really good and can't understand the negative reviews. For the age of the film and the time period it was made in I think it looks really good.
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...
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.
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..
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...
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.
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).
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.
