The Dark Tower (Spoilers) – TPToA Podcast 38

“The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.”
With this line begins one of the best loved and longest running fantasy novel series in recent history: Stephen King’s The Dark Tower. Featuring a narrative that manages to successfully weave plot threads, characters and elements from many of King’s other works into one sprawling story, The Dark Tower is a huge fan favourite.

Now the time has come for it to be translated to the big screen, and Dion and Quinny have seen the final product.  Is it a faithful adaptation of the epic seven-book series? Or is this a poorly-written novella with a disappointing twist? Have you read all the books in the series? Join us on Facebook to say your piece.

Idris Elba makes a damn fine Gunslinger, his gun-play is badass.
The worlds these characters inhabit are detailed and interesting.
Fails to strike a comfortable tone or style throughout.
Not enough detail for fans of the books, and too much history for newbies.
