    When you walk out, you'll be trying to figure out all the loose strings. The movie is uneven, detached, and superfluous. Everything that is has no explanation, and the bad guy has no story. It's pitiful to say the least. Stephen, get a ghost writer.

    Of all the 2 hour sequels out now, this is one of the few that could have constructively used 2 hours and a couple sequels. It just didn't get it. I came in with no preconceptions and enjoyed the movie, but it's obviously a cut down version of the real story. In what might be a back-handed compliment, it caused me to buy all the novels right after I saw the movie. Steven King is an amazing writer, but rarely sees his work translated to movies with the brilliance of his original work.

    A surprising twist and great acting, yes even from the young stars. Well worth seeing 8 stars but the don't allow that many. An avid movie goer.

    The Dark Tower movie is a continuation of the Dark Tower books. People who have read the books and are looking for the movie(s) to depict the events in the books will be disappointed. This movie has taken elements of four books in his series. The movie has also changed some important elements in the book that hard core fans will hate. Was the movie good? The movie seemed rushed. This hurts the development of the characters. i also think the changes in the movie don't help the movie or the characters. This movie could have been 2.5 hour event.

    This movie is OK. Wait for it to come on Netflix, it's not worth getting a babysitter so you can go see it.

    The only thing in common with the books.. were the character names and a very slim relationship with the storyline. Any continuation of the story would be out of some screenwriters fantasy world and not Stephen Kings.
