Re: Can't be a single movie

It's quite explicitly stated in the book that Paul's revolution is a rather morally ambiguous undertaking at best. In "Dune Messiah", it is explicitly stated that he is responsible for more deaths than Hitler and Genghis Khan.

It seems unavoidable that this essential part of the narrative gets whitewashed in a Hollywood production.

Icon to show what he did to a "natural barrier" to reach his emperor as soon as possible.
