PRESS

“The visually impressive sequel to the Emmy Award-winning ‘Frank Herbert's Dune' is spicing up Sci Fi Channel…with fine, entertaining action sequences, tasty royal intrigue and dramatic, sinister betrayals…The miniseries has something real to say about political issues…Thanks to state-of-the-art visual effects, the exotic images are rousingly dramatic.”

Hollywood Reporter

 

“What really keeps you engaged are Ernest Farino's special effects. He won an Emmy for his efforts on ‘Dune' and tops that accomplishment here. The visuals are so incredible; they demand a large screen viewing.”

Seattle Post-Intelligencer

 

“It's quite good. Cerebral and exciting, it's also a cautionary yarn that avoids being preachy…a fine piece of filmmaking…strong science fiction with a point.”

The Kansas City Star

 

“The photography is brilliant, bathing everything in a lush golden hue. The sets are impressive, from the grand courtyards to the sandy landscapes. The special effects are eye-popping, especially the digitally created sand worms and cities.”

Chicago Tribune

 

“…It's not necessary to understand everything to be swept away by ‘Children of Dune.'”

Philadelphia Daily News

 

“Sci Fi Channel's long-awaited sequel to 2000's “Dune” turns everything up a notch: the special effects, the star power and the melodrama. It's everything a miniseries should be…”

Variety

 

“The sequel is actually an impressive visual improvement.”

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

 

“The look of the miniseries is excellent. The production design, costumes and cinematography are at standards that would look just fine on the big screen.”
