Critic Reviews for Dune
When the anticipation is feverish, it sets up movies to disappoint and fail. This long-awaited movie smashes those expectations.
Dune is a triumph of mediocrity. What it does, it does well enough, but was it worth doing? It's a cookie-cutter movie, a restatement of every trope that now impoverishes cinema.
Nowhere near as enjoyable as Villeneuve's inspired Blade Runner 2049, Dune is an achievement for sure, but watching it is rather like having huge marble monoliths dropped on you for two and a half hours.
I saw it Tuesday night, and I want to already see it again this weekend. To watch a two-and-a-half-hour movie like that, says something...
I really loved Dune. The action set pieces were phenomenal, but the focus was almost always on the characters.
