Dune Part 2: The BRWC Review.

Dune Part 2 is bolder and much more bombastic than the first instalment. In terms of cinematography and direction, this film is comparable to the sweeping epics of David Lean’s Lawrence of Arabia (both were filmed in the same desert), Star Wars and Blade Runner. Dune Part 2 is a feast for the eyes and ears.

In terms of storytelling, Dune Part 2 is much more coherent than Part 1. It feels less frenetic than the first instalment and we get to understand the motivations of each character, Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet) duty before love which feels well placed. Yet, his mother Lady Jessica (played with relish by Rebecca Fergurson) is less concerned with duty and more with power and ensuring both her son and unborn child are secure. However, a large chunk of this film is dedicated to the character of Feyd-Rautha and his bloodthirst. The gladiatorial set pieces are epic.



This is science fiction done extremely well. It is more about the images than the dialogue. We, the audience are given free rein to imagine what might be said rather than hearing any words. As with all great science fiction films, we know who are hero is and we are rooting for him. Yet, when danger does arrive we are intrigued as to how will our hero escape. What makes Dune Part 2 even more appealing is the amount of humour in it. This gives light relief from all the brutal action and the audience to take stock of what is being shown. Javier Bardem as Stilgar has great comic timing.

Dune Part 2 will be released in cinemas across the UK on Friday 1 March.

Ros is as picky about what she watches as what she eats. She watches movies alone and dines solo too (a new trend perhaps?!). As a self confessed scaredy cat, Ros doesn’t watch horror films, even Goosebumps made her jump in parts!
