"2001" is a story of evolution. At some point in the distant past, someone or something triggered evolution by laying a monolith on the ground (presumably elsewhere in the universe). Evolution then allowed humanity to reach the lunar surface, where there is another monolith signaling to monoliths that humanity has evolved so far. Now begins a race between computers (HAL) and humans (Bowman) to reach the Monolithplazierer. The winner will reach the next evolutionary step, whatever that may be.
Unique movie from 1968, a real hit in the cinemas in it's times. 2001: A Space Odyssey can look similar to other english movies you usually watch online, but it isn't similar. You'll remember many scenes and dialogues from this movie, it's a great source for memes. Actors play and the music joined together make 2001: A Space Odyssey perform really nice. The man who directed 2001: A Space Odyssey is Stanley Kubrick. You can watch this movie online on the current page or press the download button and watch it on your computer.
