"Technically, it's phenomenal. And what it depicts is truly epic and made me appreciate this world and immerse myself in it more than I did in the first movie", "Denis Villeneuve creates a massive, epic sci-fi spectacle with Dune", "...it's unlike anything we've seen before, but at the same time familiar", "Not since the Lord of the Rings films has there been something so committed to its unique vision, so daring and so beautiful", - the audience shared their impressions.

Journalists of the San Francisco Chronicle claim that the filmed Dune dilogy is political and vividly describes the real Cold War of 1947-1991. "Indeed, Dune: Part Two is as depressing as watching the news, but that doesn't make it relevant, because it's not news. It's more like unnecessary self-torture, like watching a depressing news report from another planet," they criticized the film.
