Dune Movie Review
Dune - An adaptation of the 1965 epic novel of the same by Frank Herbert and the second in the film adaptation after David Lynch's 1984 classic Dune. A movie set in a distant future on a fictitious planet. This is the first of the planned two part movie by Dennis Villeneuve.
It is the story of a young and brilliant mind, Paul Atreides, who's destiny is beyond his imagination set to change the course of the universe is probably the simplest way to convey the story of Dune. But the complexity in bringing this story to the big screen is multifold.
This movie is a prime example of visual brilliance brought to life by cinematographer Greig Fraser, who has done amazing work earlier and is also the cinematographer of the upcoming and much anticipated Batman movie next year. The other departments, namely, costumes, production design amongst others have done a splendid job in bringing the imaginary worlds on screen and feel like real life.
Hans Zimmer has yet again raised the movie to an entirely different level with his background score which lifts the scene to a whole other level and gives goosebumps at times. Fans of any book/novel which is being adapted to the big screen, usually find it a lot less appealing than the print version. But the fans of Dune novel will be elated and happy that the film adaptation by Denis Villeneuve is as close as possible to the original material and will make the readers watch something they would have visualised while reading the book.
Denis Villeneuve has done the right job by deciding and also making the production houses to go with his decision of making Dune a two-part film. Though many might argue the movie is long drawn and also maybe boring at times, I would say the director has taken his time to set the premise right to deliver what is to come in the sequel. A perfect setting for an even bigger stage is what Denis Villeneuve's Dune - Part One is all about.
DUNE - Deni Villeneuve delivers an awe-inspiring epic mashup of Sci-Fi and Politics absolutely worthy of the big screen. In this case, definitely an IMAX worthy experience...
