Twelve years afte the events in Frank Herbert's Dune, Maud'Dib--Arrakis emperor Paul Atreides--has become the unintended figurehead of a violent dictatorship, and his enemies are multiplying. Vanishing into the desert, he waits as destiny shapes his twin heirs Leto II and Ghanima, who must contend with their scheming aunt Alia while Princess Wensicia, of the enemy House Corrino, plots her own attack on Maud'Dib's familial empire. Exiled Atreides matriarch Lady Jessica returns to Arrakis, where the enormous, desert-dwelling sandworms face an uncertain future. As always, the spice must flow, and the universe's most coveted commodity remains at the center of this epic story.

I concur with the other reviewers, if you haven’t seen the first movie or read the books in a while, do yourself a favour and do that. Otherwise, it’s hard to keep track of all the names, places, events etc. This movie is basically a soap opera set in the Dune time frame. Very little action but story is interesting and well done. If you liked Dune or the books, then you will enjoy this one. If this is your first attempt into Dune, don’t start with this movie.

I thought this movie was done quite well. The first disk has two of the 3 parts on it. It was a little hard to keep track of the characters (it has been a long time since I read the books). Definitely watch the other Dune movie first.

I thought it would be a good kid flick that would be interesting for parents too, but was sadly mistaken.
We tried to watch the whole film but the story line was to hard to follow and the movie was boring.
We stopped it before the ending.
