Dune Movie Review & Film Summary
As an ostentatious teenager, I didn’t explore the sci-fi genre too much during my childhood. Hence, I missed out on a classic like Dune (1984), directed by the great David Lynch.
Therefore, when I heard that a new adaptation of the same is coming out in 2021, I decided to give it a go. And… Oh boy, was I surprised!
But, I’ll talk about what I think about the movie later. Before that, I want to discuss a little regarding the storyline. Let’s jump onto it, then.
Dune – Storyline
Before I begin, let us tell you something interesting. If you missed out on going to the theater, then make sure to download it from RARBG. It’s a torrent website where you can find almost anything and everything for free.
Anyway, let’s get back to the topic at hand and talk about the storyline in Dune.
In the first part of the series, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet) and his journey of saving his family. However, his path isn’t going to be easy, as he has to travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe, Arrakis.
I won’t spoil anything else, though. But, I’ll tell you this, the movie is going to be pretty tense from the beginning. If you’re a sci-fi fan, Dune’s going to be a cup of heaven for you!
Dune – Movie Review
Soooo… the review.
I might sound too repetitive at this point, but I LOVED the movie. It has everything, whether it’s suspense, action, or a little flick of romance you look for in a sci-fi film.
The imagery of the cinema is brilliant. The set design, the outlook of the world, as well as the atmosphere are thoughtful. I’d say that the director was spot-on with the choice of environment and the usage of CGI throughout the film.
Now, let’s talk about Timothee Chalamet. He is the protagonist of the story. Hence, he had to show almost every humane emotion possible – and he did it perfectly. From the beginning to the end, the charming 26-year-old took every viewer’s breath away with his performance.
Oscar Isaac brilliantly portrayed the role of his father. He was noble at his best and made his screen presence memorable through some memorable dialogues. On the other hand, Rebecca Ferguson was pretty much impeccable as a caring yet fierce mother to Paul.
However, it was Zendaya who was the momentous one amongst them. She played the curious character of Chani, who was pretty impressive from start to finish.
The overall direction of the movie was quite noteworthy as well. I’ve seen some works of Denis Villeneuve before. So, I did expect this one to be excellent, and he delivered perfectly
