In 2010, the sequel to the classic sci-fi film 2001: A Space Odyssey, directed by Peter Hyams and released in 1984, Roy Scheider stars as Dr. Heywood Floyd, reprising his role from the previous film. The story takes place nine years after the mysterious disappearance of the Discovery One spacecraft, which was sent to Saturn on a mission to explore the enigmatic black monolith discovered on the Moon. Dr. Floyd is called upon by the US government to lead a joint American-Russian mission to investigate what happened to the Discovery One and its crew, and to try to learn the secrets of the monolith.

Dr. Floyd is joined on the mission by a team of scientists and specialists, including the Soviet spacecraft commander Tanya Kirbuk (Helen Mirren) and a brash American astronaut named Max Brailovsky (John Lithgow). Together, they travel to Jupiter, where the Discovery One is presumed to be orbiting, and encounter a number of fascinating and dangerous surprises along the way.

One of the key themes of 2010 is the tension between the Americans and Russians, who are still engaged in the Cold War at the time of the film's release. This is reflected in the mission's political and diplomatic maneuverings, as well as in the personal interactions between the characters. However, as events unfold, the joint mission becomes an opportunity for cooperation and mutual understanding, which resonated with audiences at the time.

Another important element of 2010 is the continuation of the deep, philosophical themes that were first explored in 2001. As the missions gets closer to Jupiter, the crew begins to experience strange and inexplicable phenomena, including a massive and mysterious ocean beneath the surface of one of the planet's moons. These experiences challenge the limits of human understanding and raise profound questions about the nature of reality and the universe.

Overall, 2010 is a worthy successor to 2001: A Space Odyssey that manages to weave together thrilling action, political intrigue, and profound philosophical musings into a satisfying and thought-provoking narrative. Scheider, Mirren, and Lithgow deliver standout performances, and Hyams' direction is innovative and visually stunning, making it a must-see for fans of the original film, as well as for anyone interested in science fiction or philosophical cinema.

2010 is a 1984 science fiction movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 56 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.7 and a MetaScore of 53.
