Dune: Part Two

I first saw the original Dune movie in the 90s and really enjoyed it. As well as seeing that original movie, I have also played a few of the video games. However, I would say that I was a casual Dune fan at best. Outside of the original movie and games, I had never read the book or knew a great deal about it as many hardcore fans did.

How to Download Dune: Part Two

Dune: Part Two was released on March 1, 2024. You can expect to be able to download or stream it film from a digital platform such as HBO Max (as this is a Warner film and should land on this platform or on Max first) in about two months from this date.

The Movie Review

However, 2021’s Dune was a truly amazing movie, a cinematic masterpiece that I am so glad I saw on the big screen! Dune: Part Two was easily one of my most anticipated movies of 2024! I had to wait until its second week to go and see it in the theatre and thankfully, I was able to keep the movie spoiler-free.

Sequel Continuation

This should go without saying, but you cannot watch Dune: Part Two without seeing Part One. I know that some sequels you can get away with seeing without having seen what came before it, but that is not the case here. It pretty much picks up right where we left off last time.

Plot Development

Paul Atreides is on the desert planet of Arrakis. Paul has joined forces with his love Chani and he has joined forces with the Fremen to try and put a stop to House Harkonnen. I really do not want to go into the plot any more than that as I would hate to spoil anything for those of you who have not yet seen it.

Introduction of New Characters

I felt like the last movie kind of just ended, but that movie sets up what goes down here perfectly. We do have some new characters, most notably Austin Butler as Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen. He is getting all the attention in the previews for Dune: Two and while the rest of the cast is great, I have to admit, all the attention he is getting is deserved.

Villain Dynamics

Sting for me is one of the most memorable aspects of that original Dune movie. Austin Butler plays the character very differently; he is much more psychotic and you 100 percent believe that this guy would slit your throat just because he felt like it. He is just such a great villain and easily one of my favorite parts of the movie. As much as I enjoyed that original Dune movie, I think I may have a hard time taking Sting seriously in that role now.

Love Story and Character Development

While Austin Butler may have been getting all the attention in the trailers and from the press. Dune: Part Two is mainly about Paul and Chani, they get the majority of screen time and in many ways, this is a coming-of-age love story. Now, that may sound eye-rolling inducing, but it makes you take to these characters even more.

Visual Spectacle

Seeing Paul rise and overcome these trials/obstacles whatever you want to call them is truly amazing stuff. While most of the movie takes place on the sand-covered planet, it never loses its huge intergalactic feel. You are still aware that much of the galaxy is at stake here and it feels just as if not more epic than the last movie. Dune: Part Two just like Part One is a visual spectacle! I saw this in iMax and I am so glad that I did! This is some of the best sci-fi that you will ever see when it comes to the visuals.

Conclusion and Recommendation

This was one of those movies where I was 99.99 percent sure I was going to like it before I saw it. I am happy to say that Dune: Part Two is even better than the first movie and if any movie that comes out in 2024 is better than this, well we are having one hell of a year as far as movies go! You have to go and see this, my only recommendation is that you re-watch the first movie just before you go so this has even more impact.
