      Avrge0X Great cast, terrible script. Another reason why the source material should be studied before turning it into a movie Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/20/24 Full Review Kiss K Really bad movie. Makes no sense. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/05/24 Full Review Channel C The movie felt like a rushed project made by a over-the-top kid. The dark tower made me loose brain cells and lacked in creativity. It really felt like a fever dream because it changed so fast you couldn't understand the plot. "Oh no a dude that turned into ur father! DONT FALL FOR IT" also the main characters a boy but he sounds like a girl. Overall a very sh!tty and poor written movie. -1/10. For the love of god don't watch it!!!!!!!!!! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/24 Full Review Griffith J Beyond comprehension why the script combines & condenses the massive source material. Also adding things makes this a jumbled mess of seemingly random plot points. The casting & set design are solid but that's it. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/24 Full Review Spike G Honestly I it's ok but I can see why people hate it Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/06/24 Full Review Michael T I liked the dark tower, unfortunately others didn't, so the planned movie/TV franchise will never happen, so I have taken to buying the books. Elba is great as Roland and Dennis haysbert in his usual small outing pleased as always. All in all it's worth a watch, if nothing else it's a reason to start reading the books, which by all accounts are amazing Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Tal Rosenberg Chicago Reader Danish filmmaker Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) directed, and I'm not sure why. Mar 26, 2020 Full Review Larushka Ivan-Zadeh Metro Newspaper (UK) Not so much a stinker of a movie as a bafflingly incomplete one, The Dark Tower has presumably been inflicted with so many cuts it's like watching a 95-minute trailer. Rated: 2/5 Oct 11, 2017 Full Review Nick Pinkerton Sight & Sound No one involved in The Dark Tower seems to have given a damn about what they turned out, so why should anybody else? Sep 4, 2017 Full Review Don Shanahan Every Movie Has a Lesson The Dark Tower becomes the antonyms of all of the other terms: short, rote, vague, lethargic, and limited. Rated: 1/5 Apr 7, 2024 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies Elba is good with what little he’s given, and you could say he is a reminder of the potential this film had. Rated: 2/5 Aug 20, 2022 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review It seems as though the filmmakers shy away from everything that made King's series distinct, memorable, and weird. Rated: 1.5/4 Mar 22, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
