Dune Part 2 Review

Dune Part 2 Review

Dune review

Dune is a 1965 epic science fiction novel by American author Frank Herbert, originally published as two separate serials (1963-64 novel ‘Dune World’ and 1965 novel ‘Prophet of Dune’) It is one of the world’s best-selling science fiction novels of all time.

Visually thrilling and narratively epic, Dune: Part Two continues the adaptation of the beloved sci-fi series in spectacular form. In this big, follow-up to 2021’s first installment, we catch up with our characters on the arid planet of Arrakis, fighting off a ambush and making their way to a group of the Fremen, the ragtag group of freedom fighters trying to protect their homeland from invaders greedy for their most valuable resource: the universally coveted substance known as spice. Paul and his mother, Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson), who is pregnant with his little sister, have joined the Fremen after the assassination of Duke Leto Atreides, Paul is grappling with some Fremens’ belief that he’s the leader sent to save them, while others — including the tough, skeptical Chani — consider him a false prophet.

Dune Part 2 does a smooth job of bringing the audience back up to speed, even if some viewers will have to remind themselves of the difference between a T-probe and a crysknife. Those who need no refreshing will want to hasten to their nearest multiplex to plunge once again into novelist Frank Herbert’s wildly imaginative universe. Heavy with biblical themes of prophecy, sacrifice, redemption and resurrection — with Shakespearean grace notes of fate, family and revenge — “Dune: Part Two” manages to be busy and oddly inert at the same time. Things happen for sure in a plot wherein Paul must decide whether he’s an all-in revolutionary or a reluctant demigod

“Dune: Part Two” builds a world that’s undeniably spectacular, compressing a sprawling, borderline incomprehensible story into an efficient narrative-delivery system. For “Dune” fans, it gives them the majestic treatment their beloved novels have long deserved.


The film is absolutely gorgeous. It’s one that you really must see on the biggest, best screen you can find, preferably in a theater with really great sound. The seats were shaking at some points. There is so much spectacle here, it’s a little overwhelming at times. Costume and set design goes above and beyond, giving us a fully realized, wholly unique and immersive sense of place throughout the film.

Overall, while it’s not perfect this really was about as good an adaptation as you could ever hope for when it comes to Dune, which has foiled more than one attempt in the past. #meosmoviereview #ourconic #dunereview #duneparttwo #moviereview
