Reviews:

“Even for one of Polonia’s films this feels cheap and rushed. So little happens that it actually feels incomplete, as though it’s missing scenes or a whole subplot […] avoid Dune World at all costs. There’s no plot, no action and no reason to watch it, it isn’t even unintentionally funny.” Voices from the Balcony
