Dune: Part Two Review – A Cinematic Masterpiece Unfolds in the Grand Sequel

Directed by Denis Villeneuve and based on Frank Herbert’s beloved sci-fi novel, Dune: Part Two has set out to blow your mind in just under three hours. It isn’t often that a sequel lives up to the first part, but Dune: Part Two, which is grander than ever, has done exactly that. This is the kind of movie where you would want to sit back and relax, whilst also gripping tightly on your seats.

Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Furguson, Dave Bautista, and Christopher Walken have all delivered some of their best performances in Villeneuve’s sequel, and the much-anticipated performances of Florence Pugh and Austin Butler have also exceeded all expectations in Dune: Part Two.

A visually striking experience

We would highly recommend watching Dune: Part Two at the cinemas because watching this masterpiece on the big screen will give you the best possible experience. However, there’s not a shred of doubt that Dune: Part Two will also work well on the screen after it presents itself on a streaming platform.

Nevertheless, this cinematic masterpiece is bound to engage all your senses in the best way possible. The way Dune: Part Two has been created, will make you feel like you’re a part of the movie itself, as it truly is larger than life. This sci-fi movie picks up shortly after the ending of its first part, which we would highly recommend watching.

Paul Atreides and his mother have stuck by the Fremen as they transport the body of Jamis, who was bested in a fight with Paul. The very beginning of Dune: Part Two sets the tone for the rest of the movie, with a brilliant action sequence, and some interaction between Chani and Paul, which will continue to be explored in the rest of the movie.

While Dune: Part Two has several elements, the battle between the Fremen and the Harkonnens for control of Arrakis remains the continued storyline for the entire movie, whilst also exploring Paul’s character arc. As these elements continue to be explored, one can’t help but be blown away by the visually striking experience that Dune: Part Two offers.

Dune: Part Two does everything right when it comes to the visuals, CGI, post-production, sound, and plenty more to help keep the audience engaged from start to finish. Even if someone isn’t a fan of this franchise, will quickly be roped into the storyline because of the intricate details that make Dune: Part Two an experience, and not just a movie.

New additions to Dune: Part Two

Fans have been desperately waiting for the addition of Austin Butler and Florence Pugh in Dune: Part Two, and both of them have lived up to all expectations, however, more screentime of Pugh would have been appreciated.

Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen, played by Butler, was presented as one of the most ruthless and manic characters in the Dune franchise so far, and Butler lived up to the characteristics of the Feyd-Rautha. He might scare you, but it will be worth it. As for Pugh, who played the role of the Emperor’s daughter, did not have much of a screentime, however, she will play an important part in the future installations of the franchise.

Overall, Dune: Part Two will make you gasp while you grip your seat, and Timothee Chalamet’s performance will stand out as the minutes pass by. For all the fans who wanted to see more of Chani and Paul, this sequel is definitely the place to be, however, you might be in for some heartbreak towards the end of the movie. Nevertheless, Dune: Part Two is a grand masterpiece that deserves a watch.
