In this sequel to 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), 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. Amongst 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 A.I. computer. Based on the novel by Arthur C. Clarke.Written by

In the first scene where Dimitri Moisevitch (Dana Elcar) meets Dr. Heywood Floyd (Roy Scheider) in the radio-telescope, they appear to be filmed separately even when both are on the upstairs, one in front of another at a few meters between them. They only appear together in some long shots. See more »
Dave Bowman doesn't say "My God, it's full of stars!" in the film version of 2001 (though he does say it in the book). However, just because Bowman isn't heard saying it onscreen does necessarily mean he didn't send a transmission with those words. See more »

This film deserves more attention.
I looked this film up before renting it since I had never seen it. The comments I saw for a review saying it was boring as the original (first one) and ..."uninvolving"? This movie blew me away, I really thought it was great. This is NOT an action movie and for that matter neither was "2001". If you're looking for a fast paced and, well.. shallow movie this isn't that either. You thinkers, this movie is for you. The acting is wonderful and special effects are very convincing and not diverting. The story is very interesting although it certainly dates it more than special effects. I can probably name about 120 sci-fi movies that aren't as enjoyable to me as 2010 and most of those are still more than worth seeing. Not only worth seeing but for genre fans it is worth owning on DVD.
