The Dark Tower quick movie review
Despite two good performances from Idris Elba and Tom Taylor and a bevy of entertaining action sequences, The Dark Tower still can’t save itself from being one of the weaker Stephen King adaptations. It’s not quite as bad as “Cell” per se; it’s just bland and inaccessible for the uninitiated.
For one, it feels like you need to have an extensive knowledge on the mythology in order to better understand the film. There is a through-line of action that you can follow, but good luck if you really want to know more about the backstory ‘cause you aren’t going to get any of it here. For that, you might actually have to go read the books.
Matthew McConaughey’s performance was also one of the weakest parts of The Dark Tower. He doesn’t comes off as menacing, and I still see him as Matthew McConaughey and not the all-powerful, all-terrifying Man in Black.
All in all, The Dark Tower is not really a good movie but it’s not bad either. Fans of the series might get a kick out of it but for the uninitiated, it’s totally inaccessible. With great Stephen King adaptations this year like It and Gerald’s Game, The Dark Tower stands out like a sore thumb as the black sheep of the family.
The Dark Tower
"I do not aim with my hand; he who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I aim with my eye.
I do not shoot with my hand; he who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I shoot with my mind.
I do not kill with my gun; he who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father.
I kill with my heart." Long but cool quote!
(Might be spoilers!)
I just watched it and man did I love it, it was telling needed details from start to finish with a ton of action. I loved seeing the mythical magic type scenarios like fire in hands, words that kill people, pictures that give nightmares. I'd give it a 9/10, I really thought it was a good movie!
