Dazzling special effects, unforgettable images and powerful performances highlight David Lynch's stunning film version of Frank Herbert's classic science fiction epic about an intergalactic warrior's messianic rise. Starring Kyle MacLachlan, Jose Ferrer, Max von Sydow, Oscar winner Linda Hunt and Sting, Dune is the ultimate adventure experience that goes beyond the imagination.
Even more than most of David Lynch's deliberately bizarre and idiosyncratic movies, Dune is a "love-it-or-hate-it" affair. An ambitious, epic, utterly mind-boggling--and, let's admit it, all-out weird--adaptation of Frank Herbert's classic science fiction novel, Dune remains one of the most controversial films in the director's exceedingly provocative career.

Melange fans have a lot to be excited about with this impressive edition of Dune, though the "Extended Edition" label is a bit misleading. If you are expecting the mythic 4 hour "David Lynch preferred" version that is rumored to be sitting in a vault, dont get your hopes up. This isn't it.

After watching this with my kids we watched the SciFi version, which is also very good.
The special effects in Dune are great for it's time. I really appreciate the work that went into creating Dune. Everything from the costumes to the sets looked great! The sound design is also nicely done. There were times when the audio tended to sound harsh, but overall this is an excellent soundtrack.
Dune is a good alternative to Star Wars. I definitely recommend this film.
