Missed opportunity. Stanley Kubrick srcewes it up. Too many wishes, but he doesn't get to the point in time. Desert. Monkeys. Monolith. Frank's death. HAL9000 taking command. The embryo. Dave. Too many cooks (subjects) spoil the broth. Only 30 out of 160 min. (20%!) are worth watching. The rest is boring. The computer, designed by man takes control over man. This idea is brilliant. But Stanley Kubrick screwes it up.
It doesn't matter if you like it or not - it's here and it isn't going anywhere. '2001' is cinematically equivalent to Michelangelo's David or Picasso's Guernica. It is written into the cultural narrative and arguing wether it's boring or any good misses the point. If you haven't seen it then there's a lot you won't understand about what came after it.
Lo que más me sorprende de la película es que en 1968 ya podían hacerse en cine los fabulosos efectos especiales con los que cuenta esta película de ciencia ficción además como es el contraste de los colores en cada escena está perfectamente equilibrada y en temática trata te abordar distintos temas que se representan en cada escena o imágenes u objetos en la película (evolución humana,tecnología ,inteligencia ,etc).
Slow and tedious at times (like when Dave is traveling on the alien planet for so long). Visuals are extraordinary. The main story was good - I particularly loved everything about HAL. This film absolutely influenced current science fiction films and games which is fantastic.
What was once profound and influential has become the backbone of much of our pop culture. Aspects of the film can be difficult for modern audiences. The film in many ways is cold and othering while lacking in the mystery and intrigue it once had (primarily due to its place in the zeitgeist).
