2010 (1984) was the long awaited sequel to the science fiction classic 2001: A Space Odyssey. The sequel takes place nine years later. A strange disturbance near the planet Jupiter has worried the space agencies of the U.S.A. and the U.S.S.R. The two countries decide to work together on a joint space mission to Jupiter. They also decide to find out wait happened to the last mission to Jupiter. On board is H.A.L.'s creator and Heywood Floyd ( he encountered one of the monoliths on the moon nine years earlier). What awaits the space travelers when they reach the gravitational pull of Jupiter?
A worthy sequel to the first film. This one is more of a straight forward science fiction film (unlike the original film). The subject matter is more faithful to the source material. The costumes and sets are amazing whilst the acting and directing his serviceable. Too bad they never finished the trilogy. Maybe they will one day.
