Dune 2 Review

I am aware of how long movies are becoming these days and how most people are sick of that. I do however think Dune 2 could have used another 30-40 minutes. The film was awesome, the sound effects and music were great. The side characters had their own things going on such as the internal drama of the Harkonnen people and the Bene Gesserit. It was cool seeing the mother become lady Jessica and have her own story line as well. 

The ending felt a bit rushed to me, as in the last battle everyone met at the same place and just began fighting. It seemed like it came and went very quickly. 

Stilgar was one of my favorite characters, and I definitely need someone hyping me up like that in my life. Anything Paul would do, this guy Stilgar would be watching, nodding his head and saying "yes, as written" referring to a prophecy. If I had that I would either be the most confident or cocky human in the world. 

There were some links to religion and faith that i felt like were relevant to the present day. The fact that they started a holy war and explicitly called it that. Also the Chani people prayed and lived similarly to Palestinians. 

No spoilers but Paul sells out in the end, and also a lot of people are furious about that and making memes already. Pictured below, Source: Twitter

Overall Score: 83% | Dune 2 was much better than the first one.
