I didn't hate it... almost, but not quite. If I didn't already know what was going on, then I would have been lost. The first one from 1985 is one of my all time favorites, but this one... I had to force myself to watch over a 5 day period. It was so boring, and so very much of the story line is hacked up or not even touched here. There isn't enough left over for a sequel. This just needed another 30 minutes of content to finish up I am upset that I didn't just rent it instead of purchasing it. Please if you really need to see this.... just rent it. It's not worth buying. Sad, just sad.

Should have watched "Who Killed Captain Alex". Indeed a much better use of your time. I just wasn't into this. I fell asleep at one point and then found myself playing nintendo switch at another point. Its visually stunning, but the actors and directors just didn't do the material justice. The first movie wasn't great, but I felt they kept my attention. It's beautiful to look at, but that's it. This is better as a wall paper than as a movie.
The first "Dune" movie was/is disjointed, hard to follow and Not True to the author's book. The second is even More strange & virtually impossible to follow/understand unless you have read the book(s). Yes, I did say book(s) as plural though there's only one book "Dune" by Herbert there are several other books whose influence is reflected in this (the second) movie. Special effects are OK but still lacking (IMNSHO) compared to other S.F. movies.
