Trivia

Keir Dullea (Dave Bowman) and Douglas Rain (HAL 9000) are the only actors to reprise their roles from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). See more »

Goofs

Near the end of '2001' when Dave is disconnecting HAL, the video comes on inside HAL with Dr Floyd explaining that only HAL knew about the monolith on the moon. Yet in this film, Dr Floyd (Roy Scheider) himself denies having done that, or even knowing about it. See more »

Fine film.
14 June 2000 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

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.

Sorry, 2001 is an *Arthur C Clarke* story. He wrote a sequel to his own story, called it "2010" and *he* explained what Kubrick left unsaid. I'd say he had a right. Then someone buys the film rights and produces a fine movie from it.

And it *is* a fine movie. Intelligence far in excess of the usual Hollywood SciFi garbage (Independence Day or Starship Troopers anyone?).

The scenes with Keir Dullea were far more chilling than anything in the original.

Arteur theory is still alive and well, I see.
