Not enough time to introduce, let alone develop the "Gunslinger" and "Man in Black" characters, or to explain the many mythical tropes. The best thing was the fancy special effects on flying bullets. The rest of the story were not inspiring as other similar themed pilots of franchises based on novels as "Hunger Games," "Riddick," "Divergent," "Ender’s Game," "Halo" ... "11.22.63."

Having not read any of the books, I enjoyed watching the movie. Did it bring anything new to the table in terms of plot or action sequences? No, not really. That being said, I tend to enjoy films that are more fluff than substance, and I enjoyed the fight scenes. Being able to turn my brain off, sit back and watch is how I like my movies.

If you are a Steven King fan and have read the Dark Tower Series, you will enjoy this adaptation of the first in the series. It will be interesting to see if they produce the rest of the series, 6 more books. Waiting in anticipation! You will enjoy this film even if you are not a fan.

The critics are correct. This movie is not worth watching which is a pity because I am a fan of both adult leads.

Is this all there is? I tried to read the books years ago and just couldn't, now I maybe see why. If Matthew McConaughey is supposed to be the all evil Flag, then the casting was way off. Definitely glad I didn't pay to see it.

Terrible! I read all the Dark Tower books, this movie was badly cast, badly acted, had almost nothing to do with the saga of The Gunslinger 👎👎

We liked the movie. In fact wished it had been longer!

This movie is lackluster in every respect. The worst part is that they have talked about making this for years and years but the best they could come up with is this piece of crap.
