3001 isn’t a terrible story, but it does fall way short of 2001 and 2010. The storytelling doesn’t have the same resonance and the plot itself was forced and felt unnecessary. The humanity feels like it has been stripped away. There is no longer any mystery to the fates of Dave Bowman and Frank Poole, nor is there any sense of danger. It seems that 3001 was an attempt to resurrect the series after the flat reception of 2061. Instead, it is simply a continuation of a once great story that has fallen into mediocrity.
