The last Gunslinger: Roland Deschain, has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O'Dim, also known as the Man in Black, and determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower that holds the universe together. With the fate of the world at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle, as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.
I saw "The Dark Tower", starring Idris Elba-The Thor movies, 28 Weeks Later; Matthew McConaughey-Interstellar, Texas Chainsaw Massacre:The Next Generation; Tom Taylor-Legends_tv, Broken Hearts and Jackie Earle Haley-London Has Fallen, Shutter Island.
This movie is based on a series of Stephen King novels-7 or 8 of them, I think-and he has said that his primary influence was 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly' & 'Lord of the Rings'. FYI: The Dark Tower novels connect characters from other Stephen King books into the same universe. If you keep an eye out, you can spot lots of little 'nods' to his other books and I even saw a movie theater that was showing spaghetti westerns-nod to The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. Anyway, the plot is probably more of what you are interested in, so here goes. There is a big tower at the center of the universe that keeps evil in check. All these different universes-one of them is ours-surround it and can be reached by using portals. Tom plays a boy on our world that keeps having dreams of Idris' world. Idris is a gunslinger-the last of his kind-that is in a never ending battle with Matthew, aka, The Man in Black, a dark and evil sorcerer that is always trying to destroy the tower and unleash evil across all the universes. Matthew can just wave his hand and say a word, like sleep, and the person will sleep, or anything else, depending on what he says-stop breathing, kill someone, etc. Jackie is one of Matthew's lackeys that do his bidding-probably because they are afraid of what Matthew might say to them if they don't. Tom finds a way to connect with Idris and they team up to try and stop Matthew. It's rated "PG-13" for gun violence and action and has a running time of 1 hour & 35 minutes. I enjoyed it and would buy it on DVD. Sometimes great books make for great films especially in this day of CGi when films no longer fall short in bringing to life what our imaginations brought to life in our mind from the pages of the book.
Sadly as with a lot of book to film cross overs in this day and age the fan base for books and comic books is not what it used to be and you of course always run the risk of what is someone's imagined idea of what the book characters, setting and story should be will not always translate into what the vast majority of us think it should have been.
All that aside this movie is essentially a kids movie that revolves around a child actor (teen) and movies with a child actor as the main star have not done well at the box office since E.T It has a 12A certificate in UK.
Yes Edris and Mathew do fine jobs facing off against one another but they revolve around the kid and you can't help but feel you are watching a kids movie rather than a kid caught up in a nightmarish adults world.
Ultimately it would have made a better mini movie series on Netflix than on the bigscreen The Dark Tower is a tepid non-starter from minute one. The Dark Tower is based on the seven novels that collectively make up the The Dark Tower series, written by Stephen King. The first is called The Gunslinger, followed by The Drawing of the Three, The Waste Lands, Wizard and Glass, Wolves of the Calla, Song of Susannah, and The Dark Tower. Stephen King recently announced an eighth book, The Wind in the Keyhole, to be set between Wizard and Glass and Wolves of the Calla. There is also a short story involving Roland entitled "The Little Sisters of Eluria." 7cb1d79195
