In the distant future, a police marshal stationed at a remote mining colony on the Jupiter moon of Io uncovers a drug-smuggling conspiracy, and gets no help from the populace when he later finds himself marked for murder.
In this sequel to 2001: A Space Odyssey, a joint American- Soviet expedition is sent to Jupiter to discover what went wrong with the U.S.S. Discovery against a backdrop of growing global tensions. Among the mysteries the expedition must explain are the appearance of a huge black monolith in Jupiter's orbit and the fate of H.A.L., the Discovery's sentient computer. Based on a novel written by Arthur C. Clarke. Written by

EASTER EGG: On the Leonov miniature: to the lower right of the "LEONOV" marking on the starboard side of the ship is a tiny decal reading "SDELANO V SShA", meaning "Made in USA". It is barely visible on the Blu-Ray in the shot where Brailovsky and Curnow exit the airlock. See more »
At the beginning of the film, the graphics showing Dr. Floyd's report of the events in 2001 indicate that the TMA-1 monolith was discovered in the Sea of Tranquility. TMA-1 stood for Tycho Magnetic Anomaly-1 because the monolith was discovered in the crater Tycho. Tycho is several hundred miles southwest of the Sea of Tranquility. See more »
2010 is not a bad movie. It really clears up points made in 2001 that no one would ever figure out without this film, like why Hal went mad. The cast is good, special effects look OK, however they seem a bit cheap compared to 2001. My biggest problem is everything in the movie is so direct, every little thing is explained to you. This is the complete opposite of 2001 where nothing is given. Hopefully is they make a 2061 or whatever the next book in the sequence was, a happy medium will be found between the two styles.
