Storyline

"2001" is a story of evolution. Sometime in the distant past, someone or something nudged evolution by placing a monolith on Earth (presumably elsewhere throughout the universe as well). Evolution then enabled humankind to reach the moon's surface, where yet another monolith is found, one that signals the monolith placers that humankind has evolved that far. Now a race begins between computers (HAL) and human (Bowman) to reach the monolith placers. The winner will achieve the next step in evolution, whatever that may be.

Still the GREATEST Film ever made19 July 2013

As we are beginning to learn and figure out, Aliens most likely had a huge effect on human development over the eons. This is Stanley Kubrick's view on the coming and rebirth of mankind put forth as only Kubrick could. An absolute masterpiece, and to me, the single greatest film ever made.

This is a IMDB page Review21 June 2013

IMDB Review:

Besides the incredible special effects, camera work and set design, Kubrick also presents the viewer with a lot thought about what it means to be human, and where the human race is going. Yes, the ending is maybe weird and could be hard to comprehend - but that`s the nature of... more
