Trivia

During the conversation between Floyd (Roy Scheider) with Moisevitch (Dana Elcar), Floyd mentions wrongly the spaceship Titov, renamed as Aleksei Leonov "because the other name wasn't so popular", in Moisevitch's words. German Titov was a Russian cosmonaut who traveled in the spacecraft Vostok 2 in 1961, giving a complete turn around the Earth. See more »

Goofs

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 »

A much different movie than the first one.
16 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

The first movie in the series, 2001, was a very artistic piece that had only moments of dialogue in its more than two hours of film. 2010 appears nearly apologetic in comparison, explicating somewhat excruciatingly every nuance of the plot through the main character's supposed messages back to planet earth. All of the blurry details of 2001 are made crystal clear in this fashion. It is a very wordy movie.

Nevertheless, 2010 has images that can captivate audiences just as well as they did in 1984. Today's movie goers will notice slight glitches in the special effects as well as a couple of discontinuities. The movie also dates itself because the plot includes a lot of tension between the Americans and Russians.

Because 2001 was such a great movie, 2010 tends to pale in comparison. However, it is still a very good science fiction movie and it is worth viewing (but probably not buying).
