Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) is a young boy with visions, but he's told they're not real. He's suddenly transported to the fallen land of Mid-World that he thought only existed in his dreams. There he meets Roland Deschain (Idris Elba) — a gunslinger who is trying to keep the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey) from destroying the Dark Tower in the End-World and unleashing hell onto both worlds.

The Gunslinger follows the boy back to Earth in an effort to save the Dark Tower, which stands at the epicenter of time and space, and is the only hope in saving his dying world.

Based on Stephen King's book series of the same name.

  • 5 stars "Good movie, Matthew McConaughey play the Good evil villain."
  • 2 stars "If you are a fan of the dark tower series and have read all the books, do not go see this movie. So disappointing on so many levels."
  • 4 stars "Pretty entertaining but way too short. Of all the new boy actors this summer Tom Taylor does an excellent job. McConehey as usually was pretty bad but Elba very believable. Story line kinda corny but i was entertained!"
