2001: A Space Odyssey is a remake to the 1968 classic film of the same name. It was produced by George Lucas, and directed by Steven Speilberg.


An imposing black structure provides a connection between the past and the future in this enigmatic adaptation of a short story by revered sci-fi author Arthur C. Clarke. When Dr. Dave Bowman (Chris Pratt) and other astronauts are sent on a mysterious mission, their ship's computer system, Heuristically programmed ALgorithimic computer 9000, better known as HAL 9000 (Harrison Ford), begins to display increasingly strange behavior, leading up to a tense showdown between man and machine that results in a mind-bending trek through space and time.


The film got mixed reviews from critics. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 89%, which is very close to the original films rating. People thought that it had good music (while the original barely had any music) since it was performed by John Williams, who makes great music, and they loved HAL 9000's theme "Bad Programming Day". Also, a lot of people thought that it was similar to the original film. Harrison Ford even got a reward for his excellent acting in this film, people even say that it was better than his performance as Han Solo.


  • This film was actually awarded as the best a sci-fi film of 2022.
  • Unlike the original film, HAL doesn't sing Daisy Bel. Instead, he sings the song "We'll Meet Again" by Vera Lynn. It is unknown why the song was changed, but Ford actually said that he likes the song, hinting that he might have wanted to sing that song instead.
  • HAL 9000's famous quote is said in a lot creepier tone than the original film.
  • This has been the first time that Mark Hamil and Harrison Ford have been in a film together since the Star Wars franchise.
  • This film actually awarded George Lucas as the best sci-if film producer of all time.
  • HAL's appearnce seems to be different then the original film, since he was a little bigger, and the red part of his eye was a lot darker. He also has a deeper voice.
