Is the studio concerned about this? No reviews yet...

I've seen something somewhere the review embargo should be lifted soon.

I keep reading about how the Dark Tower movie sucks, and it makes me wonder whether Tom Rothman is the real Randall Flagg.

But does it suck because people think its an adaptation of the books?....when they already have said its a follow up to them.

Why would they not start from the beginning of the books?

Sounds like they've doomed this to fail from the start.

Yeah, if it is indeed a continuation of the books and not an adaptation of them, then I have lost almost all interest. The film clearly shot itself in the foot because I imagine many are in the same boat I am having not read the books. I simply don't have the patience for long Stephen King books, but I might be interested in a film adaptation.

And yeah, it's not sounding good...

The biggest gripe I've read so far is that the film is short at 95 minutes long.

The storyline is oversimplified & a lot of the characters lose their backstories/motives.

I don't know. I kind of find it refreshing to see that a movie can be made in less then a near 3 hour sit. Even with the new reclining chairs and all, that is still a long time to sit in one place with out really being able to get up and move around.

This looks terrible but the books have enough of a following that it probably won't be a total box office disaster.

Well, the RT consensus is useless, in fact it doesn't even make sense to me...

Critics Consensus: Go then, there are other Stephen King adaptations than these.


That communicates nothing about the film.

But the good news is that audiences seem to be enjoying the movie much more than critics. 20% vs 64%

Oh, I just got more interest in this. I didn't realize Jackie Earle Haley is in it.

(please log in to view the image)

He's great on Preacher.

I'm not hearing good things about this. A shame, looks like it probably won't turn into a tv show.

Lol, what were they thinking making this only 95 minutes long?

Sounds like the movie was the victim of the studio attempted to make it part of a shared universe or franchise since that's the rage these days, Not every movie needs to be part of a shared universe or franchise.

Two friends of mine have told me that this adaptation is extremely sub-par.

this is a pretty good movie... haven't read the books but a friend told me that they used several parts of the 1st book and a couple others.

I enjoyed this.. unlike others I do not let critics sway me one way or the other, I go and judge for myself.. that being said again if this makes money I will laugh so damn hard at people..

8/10
