REVIEW

I feel I should note that I haven't read The Dark Tower series, so I may have been missing some context before going into this film. Overall though I'm not sure context would help some the rushed feeling the plot gives me. I feel like a lot of story was squeezed into a very short movie. Combine that with the bizarre gunslinger physics which at time made me feel very much like "I am watching a movie". There were a lot of nuances about the story that I thought were really interesting but aren't explored in-depth. I guess I should go read the books.
