By Andres Sahagun

“Dune: Part Two” is a captivating film filled with action, storytelling and amazing cinematography.

In one of the best scenes visually and aurally, Paul Atreides (played Timothée Chalamet) by climbs onto the biggest sandworm ever seen by the Fremen and successfully rides it. This scene leaves the audience in awe and gasping in amazement.

The scene comes from Paul gaining the trust of many of the Fremen and his final test to ride a sandworm.

The large sandworms that live on the planet of Arrakis play a large role in the story of Dune and are a constant threat to the Fremen.

Near the end of the film, a new antagonist is introduced.

Feyd Rautha, played by Austin Butler, is a young and strong warrior of the Harkonen clan who hopes to change the tides of the war.

Paul and Feyd are built to be rivals and have an amazing battle toward the end of the movie which keeps the audience on the edge of their seat.

While the film has a serious tone, throughout the movie there are laughs to be had thanks to the character Stilgar, played by Javier Bardem.

Throughout the nearly three-hour film, the cinematography never failed to amaze with its gorgeous shots of the planet Arrakis.

In this sequel, audiences get a much more in-depth view of the planet and its inhabitants, the Fremen who were introduced in the first film.

The film begins right where the audience was left three years ago. It follows Paul, his mother Lady Jessic, played by Rebecca Ferguson, and the Fremen.

The film quickly places the characters in a tough situation and they witness how the Fremen use the desert dunes to their advantage to quickly take out the members of the Harkonen clan.

When Paul and Lady Jessica arrive at the home of the Fremen, the people are split on whether to keep the outsiders or banish them.

High expectations are placed on Paul as one of the only things keeping him and

his mother alive is the belief that he may be the messiah of the people.

Paul has to quickly learn from the people to live among them and prove to them that he is the Lisan al Gaib, who the Fremen believe to be their messiah.

Paul receives help from Chani, played by Zendaya, who was introduced at the end of the first film. While the others doubt Paul, Chani is constantly by his side while also establishing herself as a strong character who can defend herself.

A beautiful soundtrack, amazing cinematography and an array of interesting characters all lead to a box office success.
