'The Dark Tower' reviews: Horror-Western movie panned for deviating from Stephen King novels

Sony Pictures gave advanced screenings for "The Dark Tower." However, the science fiction western did not receive good feedback despite its star power and movie promotion. The story is about the so-called "Dark Tower" in another world that holds the entire universe together. However, the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey) intends to destroy the tower and plunge the worlds into chaos. The only man who can stop him is the Gunslinger (Idris Elba) and the two are drawn into a battle of good and evil. With an interesting narrative by King, movie writers, apparently, could not translate that into film as reviewers felt that it did not stay true to the story. [More]
