Dune: Part Two (2024) Movie Review

Dune: Part Two (2024) - Movie Review - Quick Movie Reviews by Haris

Following the fall of House Atreides in Dune: Part One (2021) exiled Duke Paul Atreides continues his journey of enlightenment in the barren deserts of Arrakis. Soon, the noble son embraces the ways of the blue-eyed Fremen warriors, unaware that rumours about the prophesied Dune Messiah divide the tribe. After all, the suffocating grip of House Harkonnen tightens by the minute, ushering in a brutal era of war over the control of the planet and its vast spice-rich fields. But above all else, water is life. As shrewd machinators plot destruction and death, the volatile future demands the emergence of a new leader. Now caught between personal hopes and the aspirations of others, will Paul become the fighter he always wanted to be?

A late review, but better a late one than never. Right? Anyways, as you’ve heard from many reviews, this movie is a visual/audio masterpiece. From start to finish this is a feast for the eyes and ears. This is possibly one of the best sequels ever made. Everything was better compared to the first movie. The pace was better, the action scenes were more intense, the lore, this world, it just keeps expanding. Seriously, this movie is rich with fun lore. I can’t wait to see more of this world building in the epic conclusion that will be Dune: Part Three. The performances were better also. Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem and Austin Butler all kill it in this movie. Javier Bardem and Austin Butler outshine the first three, though.

Look, if you haven’t seen this movie in a theatre yet and are waiting for a home release… What are you doing to yourself? Do yourself a favor and watch this in a theatre. You will rarely witness anything as spectacular as this. This movie is absolute perfection… 10/10*
