The Dark Tower REVIEWS

  • Dumbing down the Tower

    August 6th, 2017

    The Dark Tower by Stephen King is an expansive story that spans 7 books, telling Roland the Gunslinger's journey to the Tower; involving different genres, many characters, many worlds - a big lore. . At a certain point whether you have read the series or not is probably irrelevant. If you haven't read the books, I would imagine the movie just will...

  • Bad beyond your wildest imagination

    August 5th, 2017

    Being a tower junkie for over a decade, I honestly don't have much expectation on this movie adaption. Much of The Dark Tower series' charm comes from Stephen King's narration, which doesn't easily convert into the visual language of movies. Since the bar was set extremely low, I thought there's no way I could be disappointed in the cinema.. But d...

  • Critics Got This Wrong

    August 6th, 2017

    My wife and I went to see this movie last night. This is probably the only review I've done in the past 30 years and that's because I believe this was "UNFAIRLY REVIEWED BY CRITICS", so I'm hoping you'll give this movie a shot after reading what I have to say. . I almost didn't go because the movie review in USA Today newspaper only gave it one st...

  • Yet another weak Stephen King film!!

    August 6th, 2017

    This film reminds me of the situation surrounding the making of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The film was turned down by one studio after another as none of the studios wanted to commit to making 3 films. One of the studios actually agreed to make it, but only if the script was condensed into a single film. Thankfully the people that had the rig...

  • C'mon Really??

    August 3rd, 2017

    You have Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey 8 books of material, and you put together a 95 minute movie? I absolutely hate that critics have to hold their reviews on these movies so the public cannot be forewarned. Its like restaurant critics not being able to tell you the food is dog meat until after you place your order. Then there are those fans w...

  • Stephen King has forgotten the face of his father.

    September 25th, 2017

    I'm not exactly sure what I just saw. The only thing I do know is it wasn't The Dark Tower. That wasn't the Roland Deschain I know. It wasn't Jake Chambers either, or The Man in Black. Other people I expected to see weren't even there. Important people like Cuthbert, Alain, Eddie, Suzanna... none of them were even hinted at.. I wasn't taken to the...

  • An abysmal failure......

    September 9th, 2017

    I have read a good number of the Dark Tower series of books by Stephen King and I'd rate them as some of his very best work.. I was then hugely excited and then quickly disappointed by the cinematic interpretation of King's work. The Dark Tower could best be described as the "Coles Notes" version of the books. Whilst Coles had their place summariz...

  • Highly underrated

    October 9th, 2017

    Fans of King's books appear to be unable to judge this movie on it's own merits. I think it was well put together and very entertaining. Adaptations of King's work are always difficult and the screenwriters have chosen not to attempt the impossible task of incorporating all the facets of multiple books in one movie. They simply used whatever conce...

  • Not As Bad As You Hear But More "Inpired By" VS "Based On"

    August 3rd, 2017

    Adapting Stephen King stories for the screen has long been a difficult problem for Hollywood. For every "Misery" and "The Shawshank Redemption", there are many others such as "The Mangler", "Cell", "and Graveyard Shift" and many more where things did not go as planned. The big issue is that King often creates detailed characters with complex backs...

  • Worst movie of the year.

    October 4th, 2017

    Worst film of the year in my personal opinion. You have MM and Elba, you have 8 - EIGHT - books of material, and you do a movie that is hour and a half long, you butcher the material, and after all, you don't make the Gunslinger the central character in the movie. . This project should've been straightforward: Chronologically you start with the ge...
