“Dune: Part Two ‘like no other blockbuster’, say impressed critics”

Critics are buzzing about the long-awaited sequel to the epic sci-fi film Dune. Initially delayed due to an actors’ strike, the second installment, starring Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya, has finally hit theaters, and it’s making quite the impression.

The Independent gave the film a perfect five-star rating, calling it “like no other blockbuster in existence.” Critic Clarisse Loughrey praised it as the “ultimate payoff” after filmmaker Denis Villeneuve’s bold decision to adapt half of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi novel in the first movie, with no guarantee of a sequel.

Rolling Stone’s David Fear hailed the sequel as a true sci-fi epic, while The Hollywood Reporter applauded Chalamet’s performance, noting his transition from innocence to complexity. Esquire commended Chalamet’s portrayal of a battle-tested hero, and The Guardian lauded Villeneuve’s direction.

Featuring an expanded cast including Florence Pugh and Austin Butler, the film impressed with its stunning visuals and gripping drama. Empire dubbed Butler the “MVP of newcomers,” and BBC Culture praised his standout performance.

Despite the overwhelming praise, IndieWire’s David Ehrlich offered a dissenting opinion, finding the spectacle to be too grandiose. Nevertheless, Dune: Part Two stands as a testament to Villeneuve’s vision and the enduring appeal of Frank Herbert’s universe.
