  • 4 stars Holy demonic plague Batman! I don't usually like young actors in any film but they weren't annoying in this one. Never read the books so apparently this may be an advantage. Understood the premise but the character development was not deep enough, so no able to empathize. Enjoyed the ending but it made me wonder where it would go from here as it seemed Alpha male vs Alpha male. Guess we'll see.
  • 3 stars Follows the first book very well can’t wait for the next movie
  • I enjoyed the movie, story line and action scenes.
  • 1 stars 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.
  • 4 stars 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.
  • 5 stars 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.
  • I enjoyed the movie, story line and action scenes.
  • 3 stars 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.
  • 3 stars This movie is OK. Wait for it to come on Netflix, it's not worth getting a babysitter so you can go see it.
  • 3 stars 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.
