Watching Dune in IMAX blew me away. Having no prior knowledge of the story, I was completely engaged throughout the movie. The visuals and audio were meant to be experienced in a theatre. Hans Zimmer's score, when paired with the scale of it all, was chill-inducing.
What may turn viewers off is a lack of greater character depth, and perhaps more screentime for some characters. This should also be called "Dune: Part One", as it only covers half of the first book. For me, however, this movie is still an absolute must see.
A gripping sci-fi which - if you can accept its slow pace and long runtime - will take you on thrilling journey. A fantastic sequel to the original Blade Runner, only hampered by the acting of its villain.
