Dune was well received by critics, scoring 83% Certified Freshness on Rotten tomatoes. ComicBook.comNicole Drum gave the film a rating of 4 out of 5. In her review, she explained how the film’s splendid visuals make up for its flaws:
âEven with the missteps and the half-finished feeling of having to wait for a ‘second game’ – something that, at this point, isn’t even a guarantee – Dune is a truly fantastic movie and truly a cinematic experience. The best and closest adaptation of Herbert’s novel to date, a truly lavish and decadent visual affair, even with a little bit of hero discomfort compared to those who need a hero, Dune is an absolute vision given life. I hope we are not dreaming of more. “
The new animated film My Hero Academia: Mission of the Heroes of the World opens in third place on the charts this weekend. Edgar wright Last night in Soho begins its theatrical release in sixth place and horror film Drink just behind him in seventh place.
