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

When Dr Chandra is explaining why HAL-9000 malfunctioned and killed the crew, he revealed information that was classified "TOP SECRET" in the presence of Dr Vasili Orlov. Dr Chandra would have known better than to divulge top secret information in the presence of a Soviet military officer. Dr Floyd and Dr Curnow didn't even react to this obvious violation of protocol. However, the "top secret" information (namely the discovery of the monolith on the moon in 1999 and the larger monolith near Jupiter) was now public knowledge and so no secret information had been divulged.

"2010 (1984)" is a pretty good sequel to the first film "2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)" - both movies are worth watching.
"2010 (1984)" is a mystery that must be solved but not quite as mysterious the first movie because after watching the first film you already know something about what is going in the second film "2010 (1984)".
"2010 (1984)" has been badly criticized for adding the American-Russian tensions as a backdrop for the movie and is heard in the dialogue between the characters at times. I feel that if you simply watch "2010 (1984)" as a work of fiction while forgetting about the real life Cold War that was going on then you may enjoy "2010 (1984)" a lot better.
Watch "2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)" followed by "2010 (1984)" for a good double feature.
