I have to say that I certainly got a tremendous belly-laugh out of 2010's "happy" ending. I really did.

Yep. This film's annoyingly naive message-of-peace was so ridiculously starry-eyed in nature that I couldn't imagine anyone (in their right mind, that is) taking its total nonsense at face value.

I mean, 2010's ending was so utterly dumb that I'm actually surprised that one of those demented-looking, yellow happy faces wasn't painted on the monolith as a way of expressing just how "golly-gee" happy it was. (Like, give me a break, already!)

All-in-all - I'd sure like to know why they even bothered to tell this sequel's tale. It neither said anything of any significance, nor did it succeed in clearing up any ambiguity left over from its prequel, 2001.... In fact, I'd say that this picture only served to confuse the original story that much more.

And, finally - Can someone please tell me what's so great about having 2 suns? Eh?... This phenomenon certainly couldn't be of any benefit to man. If you ask me, I'd say that having 2 suns would very likely mess up the balance of nature on this planet like it's never been messed up before.

Anyways - 2 enthusiastic thumbs down for 2010, a real piece of Sci-Fi/Thriller junk from 1984.

terrible. An insult to the original 2001.

casting, music, story, effects were unbelievably poor. Wish I could get that viewing time refunded.

I watched 2001 A Space Odyssey and wanted to watch this one. It is more interesting but matches up to the old one. It is one of the few movies worth watching more than twice.

Good movie but you need to read the book 2001 to understand what the black rectangle is about. you need to read the book 2001 before watching the movie 2001

Ok, folks I had seen this before but forgot what it was about, so I watched it again. I must say that it was way better than the first installment. No more was there that horrible singing sound effect and long drawn out scenes. What was the point of the black rectangle. Why were they so secretive?

Special effects, characters, and story suck. Horrible sequel. 1 star.

Frank's use of the word "sky" for reading the message is metaphorical. The message was relayed by radio through HAL, and it was thus received on Earth

"I don't know. It's not as simple as all that. I've just spent the past few weeks programming HAL for a thousand day orbit back to Earth and now all those programs will have to be dumped. HAL will want to know why, what do you want me to TELL Him?"

"Dr. Floyd?"
"Yes?"
"The answer is --- I was David Bowman."
