Occasionally I write movie reviews when I see one that is hyped or recommended. This one that I saw the hype and made up my mind to see it and I wasn't sorry.
Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), the last Gunslinger, is locked in an eternal battle with Walter O'Dim (Matthew McConaughey) to prevent O'Dim from toppling the Dark Tower, the key that holds the universe together. With the fate of worlds at stake, the two men collide in the ultimate battle between good and evil.
Now that is out of the way it is still a quick summation of the Dark Tower written by Stephen King. Normally, I stay away from King movies because I don’t like his genre. However, as mentioned above, if you’re into gunslingers, Elba as Roland Deschain presents a heroic character as McConaughey projects pure evil.
Nevertheless, this a shoot’em up movie with much to recommend. If you like rapid fire gun play like cowboy movies of old, this is a movie for you complete with the requisite good guy and bad guy. Get a ticket today!
