The Dark Tower

Ever since the master author of suspenseful works, Stephen King, made a dark and thrilling tale of Roland Deschain, The Gunslinger, it garnered a whole new bunch of fanbase to talk about Roland's tale as The Gunslinger in The Dark Tower saga and because with such accolades that praised his work as "an impressive work of mythic magnitude" according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a movie adaptation has arrived to give people more reasons to talk about Roland The Gunslinger.

The Dark Tower

Based on a bestseller saga by Stephen King, The Dark Tower stars Luther's Idris Elba as Roland of Gilead, the last gunslinger, and Matthew McConaughey as the Main in Black. Thrown into the battle to decide the fate of the All-World Universe, Roland of Gilead, accompanied by a young boy, is on a pursuit against the mysterious Man in Black while venturing through his quest to find the mystical nexus of all worlds and universes, The Dark Tower. There's a reason why a passage that goes "The Man in Black fled across the desert, and The Gunslinger followed."

Blending a unique combination of Spaghetti Western and signature Stephen King suspense that will keep them hanging through the edge of their seats, The Dark Tower is a powerful, spell-binding masterpiece that will leave moviegoers' eyes glued to this film from start to finish. Although this film rattles the minds of moviegoers and readers alike, it kind of feels like True Grit in so many ways and when it comes to similarities between those films, you can't really help but noticing it. While this is basically a True Grit faux simile, this is classic Stephen King stuff and with all the inevitable twists and turns you would expect in every Stephen King work ever stumbled through the shelves, it's a fair point that The Dark Tower is one of the most thrilling films to watch before summer ends.

My rating: 3.9 out of 5.
