In this sequel to 2001: A Space Odyssey, 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. Among the mysteries the expedition must explain are the appearance of a huge black monolith in Jupiter's orbit and the fate of HAL; the Discovery's AI computer. Based on a novel written by Arthur C. Clarke.Written by

The Russian ship 'Leonov', was the inspiration for the look and feel of the Omega-class destroyers in Babylon 5 (1994). See more »
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 »
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.
