  • Not Bad

    I enjoyed it till I saw him trying to teach the kid to shoot . The actor playing the kid should have been directed better here cause with a big Hogleg like he was shooting he didn't ACT like it had any kick at all when firing the pistol .
  • Loved it!

    I read the books back in the 80s, and loved them. Nothing like King's imagination and style of writing. He was able to conjur up fascinating images in your mind as you moved through this dark story. I had high hopes for this movie. The trailer realy did a good job of making fans of the original book look forward to this. However...they lost the feeling of the story. I found it moved from idea to idea without enough explanation and development, and was a bit hard to follow at times. This could have been done so much better. I really did want to like it, but it wasn't all.
  • Great

  • must read the books to make sense

    really ashame they put so little effort into character development for movie goers. this is a fan service movie, meaning youll only really enjoy this film if you have read the Book series. the Dark Tower book series is great and if youre familiar with the characters youll really enjoy this film.
  • Sad...

    This movie is a severely poor adaptation of the epic Stephen King Dark Tower series. Please don’t waste your money on this movie, just read the books. The Dark Tower books are amazingly written and for extra enjoyment get the series on audiobook. The narrators will blow you away. Keep in mind this Dark Tower collection is an epic novel so if you by the series on audio it’s like around 130 hours long. But once you start you will be hooked!!!!
  • Good flick

    By jdh9912
    In general the movie was very good. Saw bad reviews and didn’t go see it theaters. Decided to give it a try on blu Ray when it came out. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I haven’t read the series but am now intrigued. Good action flick.
  • Huh?

    By jfdklsajfdsa
    I don't know what this movie was supposed to be, but it sure as hell wasn't the dark tower. Aside from a few names it had basically no relationship to the books at all. That might have been ok if the movie was good, but it wasn't. Don't waste your time.

    It could have been so much previews were enough to introduce me to the books which I enjoyed but, even when having low expectations from the reviews and taking the movie as only marginally related, it was disappointing. It’s sad since it could have been so much better.
