A Shocking Waste Of Time
- 2001: A Space Odyssey review by AP
This came out when I was at junior school so I'm old enough to have heard about it (a lot) but never got the chance to see it. What a dissapointment! I waited 40 years to devote a couple of hours to seeing 'a masterpiece' and was REALLY let down.
It is, with out doubt, the biggest load of whacky, self indulgent garbage I have seen since Black Swan. Kubrik on a good day is a master (A Clockwork Orange) but this has to rate as a stinker. No plot....at all, really annoying music score, looooooong sequences of nothing other than shots of a spaceship floating around in space, actors in monkey suits grunting at each other and an ending that just left me saying...'what on earth was THAT all about?'
I invested over 2 hours of my life into this film and I will never see those again and consequently I'm really annoyed that I bought the hype. I don't know where Kubrik was when he put this thing together but it certainly was not planet Earth.

Innovative for it's day.

I watched it over two days and yes it caught my attention but only because I'd read the book. However I expect in it's day, with a huge cinema screen it would have been fantastic. However the story line from 'conception to infinity' still makes it one of the best sci-fi movies ever made. So even though it was a tad boring etc, I could still appreciate it.
