2010 (1984)

2010posterDazzling special effects and fancy space hardware dominate this follow-up to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Yet, there’s no feeling of awe, mystery or imagination as a joint American and Russian space crew try to find out what went wrong with the spacecraft Discovery lost in space some nine years ago.

This high-tech misfire winds down with many loose ends dangling and a lot of double talk about peace among the superpowers.
