Could be. I don't remember. All I remember is I read the book after seeing the movie a few times. I still don't get why Keir Dullea's career fizzled. About all I remember seeing him in of any note was some flick where he played the Marquis de Sade. Pretty tame and lame too. Oh well.
Even lamer was 2010. I mean, how can you do a sequel to 2001 where the Star Child is on his way to Earth to kick some ass by thinking, and there's nothing about it in the sequel.
It's like The Matrix. Once the guy flies, that should be that. If he can do whatever he can imagine then he's "God" in that environment. So there's no more point to continuing. There shouldn't be any conflict. Why mess around with Kung Fu crap if you can just vaporize anybody in the way? It's silly.
