5 out of 10 Highly underrated fantastic flick
Christopher from Galway, 02 Jul 2008
This movie was famous as being on of Hollywood's biggest all-time flops. As a kid (before I read the book) I enjoyed it in it's own right, with it's incredible effects and brilliant music. But not until I read the book did I appreciate what a great space opera Dune was with it's many complex layers - loads of characters, different worlds and cultures and cults, all with their own complex history. No movie can effectively capture all that, which is the love it / hate it problem with this movie.

0 out of 10 Dune
Noel from Dublin, 18 Nov 2007
This has got to be one of the few film that I have seen that I wish I didnt. I have watched alot of films in my years on this earth and I wish this film did not exist on this planet. If you do watch this film, watch it to see how bad a film can be made.

1.5 out of 10 Dune
Jennifer from Donegal, 28 Oct 2009
Hadn't seen this film in a good few years.Found it hard going, but I would say if you're a big fan of sci-fi you would enjoy it.My taste is much more shallow than this.Not a good film-too long winded fo rmy taste

What's it about....
David Lynch wades through dark waters in his adaptation of Frank Herbert's cult science fiction novel. In condensing Herbert's rambling and complex book by eliminating characters and compacting events, Lynch succeeds in rendering the story incomprehensible to those unfamiliar with the novel and making the film look like a sketchy greatest hits collection of the book for Herbert fans. The story takes place in the year 10,191. The universe is governed through a system of feudal...
