Critic Reviews for Frank Herbert's 'Dune' Miniseries

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Maybe there are some books that just can't be adequately transferred to the screen. And maybe "Dune" is one of them.

May 3, 2018 | Full Review…

The sets and costumes are sumptuous, the special effects impressive, and the actors give dignity to their faux-Shakespearean line readings.

May 3, 2018 | Full Review…

It has a sustained mood, it conveys some of the spirit of its source material, and it is entertaining, especially the last episode.

May 3, 2018 | Full Review…

Not the definitive telling of Dune, but not bad either.

May 3, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

I must say it's great fun.

Sci Fi has simply bitten off more than it can chew, taking on a project of this scope... All are helpless without the coin to make this miniseries what it should be.

If you're looking for some unusual entertainment - a bracing workout for the eye and maybe the heart but surely not for the mind - then settle back and let the trip begin. You may hang on for the whole weird ride.
