What is it?

The 2017 American science fantasy western movie The Dark Tower that was based on The Dark Tower book series by Stephen King.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

There are other worlds than these.

Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, the ambitious and expansive story from one of the world’s most celebrated authors, makes its launch to the big screen.

The last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O’Dim, also known as the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey), determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together.

With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.

Final Thoughts

I would give this movie a rating of a 5 out of 10, it was average, but one thing that did stand out was some of the magic but it was not explained at all.

The story and characters and world needed better explaining and setup, and some of the characters lacked the charisma that I thought that they should have.

The end,
