Product Description


No director could ever have hoped to repeat the artistic achievement of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, and nobody knew that better than Peter Hyams, who made this much more conventional film from the first of three sequel novels by Arthur C. Clarke. Whereas Kubrick made a poetic film of mind-expanding ideas and metaphysical mysteries, Hyams shouldn't be blamed for taking a more practical, crowd-pleasing approach. In revealing much of what Kubrick deliberately left unexplained, 2010 lacks the enigmatic awe of its predecessor, but it's still a riveting tale of space exploration and extraterrestrial contact, beginning when a joint American-Soviet mission embarks to determine the cause of failure of the derelict spaceship Discovery. Having arrived at Discovery near the planet Jupiter, the American mission leader (Roy Scheider) and his Russian counterpart (Helen Mirren) must investigate the apparent failure of the ship's infamous onboard computer, HAL 9000, as well as the meaning of countless mysterious black monoliths amassing on Jupiter's surface (an interpretation Kubrick originally left up to his viewers). Meanwhile, Earth is on the brink of nuclear war, and an apparition of astronaut David Bowman (Keir Dullea) appears to repeatedly promise that "something wonderful" is about to happen. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Arthur C. Clarke Fans Rejoice.... May 1 2009
By Nick B.
What can I say? The book is always better than the movie. However, the movie does not have to be worse than the book. It can be different. This is the case with this movie. 2001 was a watershed in many ways in terms of science fiction both in book and film form. Either movie can stand on its own merits and terms. If you are a fan, watch both of them back to back. I don't know if anyone has the energy or desire to do it, but it would be fantastic if the rest of the books were turned into movies as well as the story does not end with 2010. Buy the books that continue the story to its conclusion and for that matter, buy the whole set and read them. They are well worth it. Arthur C. Clarke is one of my favourite authors.

Classic even though it wasn't also done by Kubric like 2001 was. They did it justice in making it flow well and not seem incredibly out of place in the film series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jupiter and Beyond... Jan. 4 2010
Was there ever a film that needed a sequel less than 2001: A Space Odyssey? If any movie had ever defied sequel making, it was the original 2001. It is impossible to talk about 2010 without mentioning Stanley Kubrick and the groundbreaking film that started it all. With that in mind, 2010 is still an excellent science fiction film, intelligent and exciting, while feeling miles away from the original.

Dr. Heywood Floyd (the late Roy Scheider) has taken the fall for the disasters in 2001. The supercomputer H.A.L. 9000 (Douglas Rain) has failed and Dr. David Bowman (Keir Dullea) has disappeared and is presumed dead. Four astronauts have been killed by H.A.L. and nobody knows why. The Discovery is in orbit around Jupiter and the Americans plan on sending a team there to find out just what happened. Problem: The orbit is mysteriously decaying, and the Russians will get there first. Floyd has been offered a ride on the Russian ship, the Alexei Leonov, to help in their mission.

The premise itself shows us that the universe has changed. Politics were inconsequential in the first film, but by 2010 the Soviets are deep into a cold war with the Americans, and the war threatens to go nuclear at any time. The president's finger is literally on the button. Dr. Floyd, however, needs to go to Discovery and find out just what happened for his own sake. Along for the ride are Dr. Chandra (Bob Balaban), the creator of H.A.L., and Curnow (John Lithgow), the man who built Discovery and can reactivate it. The Russian crew, portrayed excellently by mostly Russian actors for authenticity, are distrustful of the Americans. Their commander, played by Helen Mirren, is also an officer of the Russian air force and finds her loyalties tested when Dr.
