"Well, the solution seems to have been to just scrap all that and release a shockingly short 95-minute movie that just kind of glosses over everything to the point that has any meaning or objective".

That film stars Idris Elba as Roland Deschain the Gunslinger with Dennis Haysbert as Roland's father, Steven Deschain, and up-and-comer Tom Taylor as Jake Chambers; all three are expected to reprise their roles in the TV series that takes inspiration from the "Wizard and Glass" novel and serves as an origin story for the Gunslinger himself.

And even more freakish is the major power Jack has in the movie is actually a reference to another King book.

Tom Taylor, who plays Jake, is an appealing young actor, and Idris Elba is a convincing hero, but McConaughey is just amusing as Walter, if only because he seems to be enjoying the sorcerer's power all too much.

According to reports, the first installment combines the elements from several novels in the eight-volume series that take place in both modern-day New York City and in Mid-World, Roland's Old West-style parallel universe.

That seems to be the consensus. "They're not trying to have their manners and graces", McConaughey shared.

Sony's film adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower is being hammered by critics, following its first wave of reviews.

The "Dark Tower" actor said on Good Morning America that he and his wife's choice of name for their son was influenced by the Bible and particularly his favorite verse Matthew 6:22 - 'The eye is the lamp of the body.

Entertainment Weekly's headline paints The Dark Tower as a "movie that's embarrassed of itself". If this movie fails, I sincerely hope he isn't the one who gets blamed, or that decision makers in Hollywood use it as the reason not to cast him as the lead in other blockbuster tentpoles. The best and funniest moments come when he's presented as the "fish out of water" on Keystone Earth. The exposition comes fast before and after Jake escapes into Mid-World and meets Roland, piling up details about the Dark Tower that holds the balance of power between worlds and the Man in Black's plan to destroy it and bring about chaos and darkness.

Owen Gleiberman with Variety somewhat echoes that sentiment in his review.

Although Stephen King fans may be disappointed that so much has had to be left out of the storytelling, they will be visually rewarded - there are many sly references to other of King's works half-hidden throughout the scenery. Yet still, the movie "summons an emotional impact of close to zero". "He never dictated anything, but he always had good opinions", he stated. Matthew McConaughey is also sufficiently charismatic and menacing as Walter Padick, although his powers of magical persuasion would feel more terrifying if the movie had been released before Netflix's Jessica Jones series, which features a villain with similar abilities (and a similar penchant for antagonizing women - Walter kills men and women alike, but nearly all the characters that he takes time to terrorize are female).
