Dark Tower Movie Review

Dark Tower Movie Review
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.

WOW! What a fun movie. The Dark Tower, from Sony, is an adaptation of a series of 8 Stephen King novels published between 1998 and 2004. It’s REALLY dark and angsty. I thoroughly enjoyed having an adaptation that was dark and brooding. A troubled youth, learns he has the ability to dream into another world, and seeks it out. Thought crazy by his peers and parents he ventures into this other universe to find the Gunslinger (Idris Elba) and save The Dark Tower from the Man in Black aka The Crimson King, a sorcerer hellbent on destroying earth and all the parallel universes, Matthew Mcconaughey.

The Dark Tower Review

Pros
It's nice to have a new film with a cool villain and a gunslinger hero. Idris Elba was REALLY good, smooth and super pro. Matthew Mcconaughey was decent, he didn't have a ton of screen time but he still killed it. The kid did well. Babe factor was for my girl Kate Winnick, also Idris is a dreamboat, so I hear. *cough*
Cons
There wasn't a ton of development of Mcconaughey's character, and though we don't always need villain detail, I would have enjoyed a little more face time from him since (to me) he's such a cool actor.
Summary
Fantastic way to spend 2 hours, action and suspense, nice story and great sets. Easy to follow, leaves you wondering if there will be a follow-up.
