The Dark Tower (2017)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
I have never read the books by Stephen King so I don’t know how faithful to the original this is and if any fans will enjoy this movie. However, coming to this film with no prior knowledge, I really loved this movie 😀 . I was gripped from the start, captivated throughout and loved the ending 🙂 . My favourite person in this movie was Walter (Matthew McConaughey) 😀 . His performance was fabulous and his character was believable. He was awesome, strong, his magic great and was terrifyingly evil 😀 . Idris Elba played a very cool Gunslinger Roland who created an interesting character to follow. I also liked the main character of Jake (Tom Taylor) and his relationship with Roland 🙂 . The other world was great and I liked the threat element of the demons. The pace was very good and action scenes were steadily placed (it felt right and I was not left wanting). The magic and hints to a darker world (such as the scene when Jake is attacked by the house) was very good and kept me guessing. There are a few deaths in this that are shocking and a great twist in the tale (won’t say who as don’t want to spoil 😛 ). Plus in the final battle, I loved the cleverness of how the defeat was achieved. Overall, this was a great adventure fantasy for anyone who loves otherworldly movies 🙂 . I would recommend this movie, would happily watch again and would love to watch another film if a sequel is ever made 😀 . Enjoy 😀
I give this film 4.5 Stars out of 5!
