Reviewed on 11/1/2012...
This movie is very different from 2001 though it's based on the same story. It's pretty much a straight-forward science fiction, space travel story based on interesting characters and the difficulties of traveling through space to study other planets. Roy Schneider is good in the leading role and some of the supporting cast are interesting as well. The stories are tied in by the mysterious monolith and it's meaning and purpose are explained. The ending is kind of silly but it's a science fiction story afterall, I guess.

Transfer is not standard DVD resolution
wademasshardt | Madison, WI United States | 02/04/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Once again, the stupid people responsible for doing transfers do an inferior transfer. Instead of using the standard DVD resolution of 720x480, they chose instead to use something more like 640x427. Honestly, I don't understand why they decide to do it this way, there should be plenty of room on the DVD, since they put the pan and scan version on the other side of the disc. I've run into a few DVDs like this and it pissed me off every time."
The saga continues ...
jalenross | Germany | 12/20/1999

"What everybody should know about 2010: It is not 2001! Sounds stupid, but it explains about everything. 2010 is the continuation of the storyline of 2001, but it tells the story in a completely different way.2001 was slow and silent. It was filled with emotions and impressions. 2010 offers the same but combines it with a far more interesting plot. On one hand it tells the story nine years after the Discovery Incident, as a team of russian and american scientists try to find answers and on the other hand it explains the fate of Bowman and HAL 9000 ... and ultimately of mankind.The movie never gets boring and keeps you guessing until the end. The actors are marvelous. The hangar scene between Floyd (Roy Scheider) and Bowman (Keir Dullea) alone is better than any other scene in 2001. The russian/american conflict may be a bit out of date (! ), but it never spoils the movies true message. 2010 is not better than 2001. It is different. It is the answer to a question and the beginning of a new one. You have to watch this film. And i also recommend the other two (book) sequels from Arthur C. Clarke (2061 and 3001)."
Very poor Picture Quality
Rallyfirst | 05/03/2009
(2 out of 5 stars)

"until now I had only the DVD Version from 2010. The quality of this DVD was very bad. No anamorph 16:9, bad picture Quality and sound. So I to get excited about the fact, that the Blu-Ray apears. I can say that it is better than the DVD OK but it is the worst Blu-Ray I ever owned. The "picture quality" is blurred, grained and the sound has no dynamic. OK, thats the best quality you can earn but sorry, for Blu-Ray very bad."
