This SCiFI channel 'sequel' miniseries is better than its predecessor. Perhap because the material from the second and third books, Dune Messiah and Children of Dune are not quite as complex as Dune. The cast changes that were made as well as the choices for the new characters strengthened the acting. Though epic in scope, this film focused on characters rather than effects, which worked well.

The music by Brian Tyler, which was heavily influenced by Gladiator, also strengthed the miniseries and easily stands on its own as a solid soundtrack. Though Herbert seemed to use several common plot devices to move the second and third books along, these devices are handled well in the films. Unlike the other two Dune films which are worth watching as 'epic' scifi genre films, this one is worth watching as an epic film.
