  • This movie not a remake if continues the series

    Spoilers! These series is a temporal look, it repeats and in each loop, it is different. This movie is not a remake, it follows the last book in the tower series, and in all the books. Those that read the books would know this, if they had paid attention to the details. It leaves off with the boy and Roland. There is still the crimson king and the possible offspring to deal with.

    I loved the book and the movie is good as well
  • Really bad movie

    By MacDad60
    This movie is such an abomination of the novel. It totally misses the mark at either following the original novel or creating a credible adaptation of the story concept. Totally not worth buying.
  • It was alright...

    By gxllxnt
    Ending was kinda anticlimactic and just a little bland for my taste.
  • Gets it done well enough

    By Jclaud
    Is the moie great? Not sure about that. But, it does get it done if your even remotely a fan of either the genre or Idris as an actor. It can leave you sighing at time and wanting more though at the end of the day it was indeed entertaining. Use a little imagination and allow yourself to enjoy it. I did..
  • Awful

    This was perhaps the worst movie I have ever seen. Do not waste your money on this!!
  • Nothing like the previews

    Drags on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on, & on.
  • Great Movie!

    As an avid consumer of the Dark Rower series, I loved this movie. It was like the next chapter in the series. I am not sure why it got such a bad rap and I am now sorry I listened to those reviews and missed seeing this in a theater.
