Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 12/01/2000
"...This incredibly ambitious [and] successful adaptation gives Herbert's work the kind of luxury only a six-hour miniseries can provide....Harrison does a fine job of keeping this often densely plotted and deeply philosophical story moving..." -- 3 out of 4 stars

Product Description:

A more thorough and straightforward adaptation of Frank Herbert's beloved sci-fi novel than the 1984 David Lynch version, this six-hour Sci Fi Channel miniseries, written and directed by John Harrison, follows the Atreides family's adventures on the desert planet Arrakis. Far into the future, various factions fight for the valuable melange spice that exists exclusively on Arrakis and is protected by fierce, gigantic sandworms. While the indigenous, blue-eyed Arrakisians wait for their Messiah to free them from the corrupt Harkonnens, the family Atreides endures infighting and political intrigue. This sprawling and reverent production features a cast that includes William Hurt, Giancarlo Giannini, Alec Newman, Julie Cox, and Matt Keeslar.
