I love "2001" as it is, but I can agree its pacing can test your patient. This was a really good way to streamline the narrative and get to HAL faster. What I didn't like was the obsession with HAL, showing flashes of him (and Bowman's eye) early on. As well, I really don't understand why the echo effect was added to some of HAL's dialogue. I almost turned it off because of that. I would really only recommend this for hardcore fans of either Kubrick or Soderbergh's fanedits.
