Watch this movie if you want to understand the previous one a little bit better
I never knew a sequel was made of “2001: A space odyssey” until a few months ago. When I finally had watched this film, I understood why. “2010” is anything but a bad movie, but it doesn’t offer the same remarkable innovation its predecessor did. Nevertheless, this film has some great special effects which are, just like “2001”, way ahead of its time. Watching this film, it’s hard to believe that it’s already more than 15 years old! Because this film sets off immediately where the previous one ended, you’re involved the second you start watching! As a result of this, “2010” sheds some serious light on many unanswered questions of “2001: A space odyssey”. This alone makes the story of “2010” very appealing, because one wants to know the true meaning behind the mysterious monolith.
The only let down of the film is that the characters are quite thin and the acting isn’t always very convincing. Add to that one or two scenes that can be a bit monotonous and you know why I think “2010” is not as good as “2001”.
Even so “2010” is worth-watching thanks to breathtaking special effects and a storyline that’ll make the previous movie a little bit more understandable.
“2010” is the all important blank filler, that leaves far less to the imagination than Stanley Kubrick’s “2001-A Space Odyssey”
What is important to understand about this movie, is that there shouldn’t be any comparison with Stanley Kubrick’s “2001” from 1968. While “A Space Odyssey” stands out as a masterpiece in film history, “2010” acts more as the film that reveals the information people were desperate to know; this wasn’t clear in Kubrick’s creation 16 years earlier.
The film is about a crew of American, and Russian Astronauts who team up, on the brink of war on Earth, to shed some light on the mystery as to what happened to the Discovery space craft, and the malfunctioned HAL 9000 on board computer. The American crew captain, Heywood Floyd, is the centre character in this film, and acts as the ever inquisitive audience with the questions that need answering.
“2010” utilises impressive visuals, and a more character personal story- line than “2001”, which provides SOME missing information regarding the Monolith, and David Bowman’s miraculous departure from the Discovery Jupiter mission nine years earlier. However, some questions remain unanswered: Where is David now? How is he making communication with the Discovery rescue crew? What is so special about Jupiter’s moon Europa? Despite the re-appearance of David and the Star-Child, the audience still feels a bit left in the dark. And some things in this movie seem rather anti-climactic, or lust plain bizarre(for instance the computer based communication between the intelligence on Europa, and Earth, and the space crew), but don’t let this sway you, the ending is quite pleasing.
I’d recommend “2010” to anyone, any day, with the warning that it is important to see “2001_ A Space Odyssey” and not make direct comparisons. It is a fun, definitely ‘Eighties’ film that provides the viewer an afternoon of entertainment. A part of me was a bit disappointed that the mystery of “2001” was revealed so simply; I felt that the mysteriousness of the franchise was what made it so likable. But this film is good, therefore it is well worth seeing.
